Posted on 3/6/2023 by Dr. Darren Huddleston
How to care for a teething childTeething for a child occurs when the child is 4 months to around 2 years. Teething symptoms might be different but it is never a comfortable feeling for a child. A child may experience drooling, irritability, the gums of the child may be red or swollen, low appetite, and mouthiness which includes the child biting items around them. To take care of the child's gum you need to visit the dentist to get information on how to take care of the gums of the child. This will allow you to have a stress free teething process for the baby.

Gum care for a child


If your baby is taking food already endure that you provide cold foods for them during teething. The cold foods include yogurt, applesauce, or fruit. This will help soothe the gum of the child. Use a washcloth so that the baby can chew on it. The cold cloth helps reduce gum inflammation, you can massage the gum too using the wet cloth. The gums of a child are soft and so ensure that you offer items that will not harm the gums of the child. Teething biscuits are hygienic but ensure that after eating the biscuits the area is wiped with a cloth. This is to prevent cavities from forming and causing gum disease to the child. The child will have the oral health they deserve after the gums are soothed softly and cleaned.

The teething process of a child can cause discomfort to you and your child. Will have a hard time seeing how your baby is uncomfortable. With regular dental visits, our dentists will offer guidance on ways that can help soothe the gums of a child during teething
