How to reduce Tooth aches for babies

Infants generally begin in to grow their first tooth around 4-7 months of age. At 3 years old, children will have their full set of teeth grown in. For many infants, teething becomes a normal problem. Teething can cause major tooth pain and typically children will go to their parents for comfort. During the process of an infant’s teeth growing in, they become restless, uneasy, and are not able to get a good night’s sleep. Drooling more often and the loss of appetite are some of the common issues that happens when an infant is teething. Issues such as a fever or diarrhea, if they occur, be sure to get immediate contact with your physician. During the teething process as well, sore gums can occur as well.

Help your baby alleviate the pain with teething with:

  • Use either a small spoon, your finger, or a gauze pad and gently rub it on their gums.
  • Provide them with a certain type of medicine
  • Give them a teething ring so your infant can begin to chew on it.

The FDA recommends for parents to not use any benzocaine products for infants who are under two years old, unless it is supervised by an expert provider of health care or if you are advised to. The use of Benzocaine can sharply reduce the oxygen supply of a child under two years old making it a bad anaesthetic.

Once your child’s teeth begin to grow in, we recommend you to use a child's toothbrush to brush their teeth for them.


★★★★★ In my opinion, Dentistry For Children NV is one of the best Dentist Practices in Las Vegas. Dr. Dennis Clark and his staff are the best. They treat you like family and have a genuine interest in your wellbeing. I used to hate going to the dentist because of feeling like I was just another patient. All of which, went away when I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Clark.

★★★★★ I came to Dentistry For Children NV fleeing from my previous dentist, and it was the best decision. Dr. Clark was very professional and caring and listened to my concerns that were not taken into account at my previous doctor. The office was very clean and orderly and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and you can tell they take not only dental hygiene seriously but cleanliness in general as a big priority.
