Is your child currently undergoing the process of teething? If your child is suffering from teething, it means their teeth are erupting above their gum line. Although this process is natural and completely healthy for your child’s oral health, it can cause mild pain and discomfort. Fortunately, there are several treatments and techniques that can help minimize the discomfort felt from teething.

If your child is experiencing any teething symptoms, it could include the following visual clues:

–  minor irritability

–  bouts of fussiness

–  drooling excessively

–  problems and hindrances sleeping correctly

–  a lack of enough sleep

–  diarrhea

–  rashes or a fever

If your child is displaying any of these symptoms, contact our dentist so that pediatric care can be given.

To ensure your child receives the necessary care, contact our pediatric dentist to determine which teething tools can be helpful to alleviate discomfort with their gums. By rubbing their gums with clean utensils including a gauze pad, your finger, a teething ring or small spoon, it can help alleviate discomfort associated with the condition. For additional help with pain relievers from our pediatric dentist, contact our team.
