Baby teeth erupt continually from the age of 6 months to 3 years. Children then lose their baby teeth as they are forced out by the adult set between 6 and 12 years.
Buy a suitable teething gel to help soothe the pain.
Buy a cooling teething ring or teething biscuits to help the pain.
Teething causes excess saliva and dribbling, but it does not usually cause the teeth or gums to bleed.
The child may become more restless.
The child may start sucking its thumb.
The child may have a temperature while teething. If so, ask our pharmacist for a painkiller to help with the pain and reduce the temperature. Teething can also cause diarrhoea. If so, give plenty of fluids, e.g. rehydration sachets.
If white spots appear on the tongue or in the mouth ask to see our pharmacist.
If you are worried about your child's teething problems, ask our pharmacist for advice.
