Tips for Soothing Teething Toddlers | Rancho Cucamonga Kids Dentist

Rancho Cucamonga Kids Dentist

Teething can be a challenging phase for both toddlers and parents alike. Most babies begin teething between 3 months and 1 year old, and it can cause discomfort and sleepless nights. However, there are simple steps you can take to keep your toddler more comfortable during this period.

Symptoms to Expect: 

It’s not always easy to recognize teething, but here are some common symptoms to watch for:

  • Fussiness
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased drooling

While some believe that teething can cause fever and diarrhea, research shows that these symptoms are not directly related to teething. If your baby experiences any concerning symptoms or if they worsen, don’t hesitate to call us for an appointment.

Soothing Methods: 

Here are some safe ways to ease your teething baby’s discomfort:

  • Gently rub your baby’s gums with a clean finger or moistened gauze pad to provide pressure and alleviate discomfort.
  • Offer your baby a cold washcloth, spoon, or teething ring to soothe their gums. Ensure that the object is not frozen, as extreme cold can be harmful. Always supervise your baby to prevent swallowing of small objects.
  • If your baby is already eating solid foods, you can introduce chilled carrot or apple slices, which can help ease their pain and reduce irritability.

Important Note: 

Before using any teething medications or numbing gels, consult with us as some products may pose risks to your baby’s health.
Teething can be a challenging time, but by following these tips, you can help make your baby more comfortable. Remember to schedule your baby’s first dental appointment as soon as their first tooth has fully emerged. Give us a call today to book an appointment in the Rancho Cucamonga area  and ensure a healthy start to their dental journey.

I absolutely love sweet tooth! Both of my boys have been coming here for a few years now. Every time we come it’s always an amazing experience. Dr Brown is the best. She always makes sure to listen to any concerns or questions that I have and takes her time to fully explain everything to me. Would definitely recommend Sweet Tooth for your family!

It’s hard to make going to the dentist memorable, but they can here… From Dr Brown to all the staff and office staff, they are incredible. Our kids ask specifically to go to the dentist because they like it there so much. Could not possibly recommend them more to anyone with kids!!
