Drool everywhere. Cranky. Sleep regression. Teething stinks and not just for your kiddo - you’re worried and losing sleep too. We at Let’s Smile Dental know what it’s like - we’re parents too - and since we’re also pediatric dentists, we have some tips to help. Check out a few of our favorite teething remedies below*:
Mini bagels (the kind with a crustier outside)
Amber necklace for them...it feels like an old wives tale (pardon the expression) but many swear by their supposed anti-inflammatory and fever reducing qualities.
Silicone chewbeads for you!
And our final Pro Tip: Don’t be afraid of Tylenol. When you have a headache, you take something to relieve the pain - imagine bones moving through your head and breaking through the gums! It’s ok to give your little one a little relief. Just make sure you check the dosage and frequency with your pediatrician.
At Let’s Smile Dental, we care about your little ones and we care about your sanity during teething. The emergence of your child’s first tooth is actually a great time to come visit us. Getting your little one used to the dentist early on will make it an easier experience down the road. Plus, we have more tips and tricks up our sleeves when it comes to teething and oral health.
