Advice from Pediatric Dentistry Maryland Can Trust: Teething

dca-blog_article-35_baby-teething_1200x630

You’ve changed and fed your baby. He’s had a nap, and there doesn’t seem to be any reason for his irritable behavior. Crying, fussy babies may leave you confused and frustrated, especially if you’re a new parent. If there are no obvious health problems, your baby might be teething. Dentist health professionals say the following signs and symptoms suggest that tiny, new teeth will soon be making an appearance.

Cranky Behavior

If your normally happy, sweet baby suddenly transforms into Mr. Cranky Pants for no reason, a tooth could be pushing its way to the surface. Teething isn’t fun, so try to forgive his or her less-than-angelic behavior.

Rubbing the Gums

If your baby keeps rubbing objects against his or her gums, your pediatric dentist will tell you this is a clear sign of the gum irritation or itching that can signal teething has begun. Be sure unsafe objects are safely out of reach, especially when everything your baby touches seems to end up inside his or her mouth.

Drooling (and Drooling…and Drooling)

Excessive drooling is another common harbinger of teething. Some babies drool so profusely that a rash develops on their cheeks and chin. To keep your baby comfortable and dry, keep a dry cloth handy to wipe saliva from his or her face and change wet clothes often. If facial rashes are painful or persistent, ask for dentist health advice.

Refusal to Eat or Fussy Eating

If your baby refuses to eat or eats less than usual, this is also very likely a symptom of teething. Sore gums are often aggravated by sucking on a bottle. Continue attempting to feed your baby normally. If he or she persistently refuses to eat, consult your pediatrician or pediatric dentist for advice.

Sleeping Difficulties

Just as tooth pain can keep adults awake at night, the discomfort of teething can leave babies tossing and turning. Their sleeping patterns may change while they struggle with their emerging teeth, but things should go back to normal once your baby’s teeth break through. In the meantime, look for a good affordable dentist to take care of your baby’s new teeth when they arrive.
