Teething

Description

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.

Our Advice
  • 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.
