Pediatric Dentistry Florida Babies Love: Talk About Teething

dca-blog_article-35_baby-teething_1200x630

Is your bundle of joy crying for no apparent reason? One of the most baffling tasks of any new parent is trying to determine what is causing a baby’s fussy or irritable behavior. If your little one has been fed and changed, and there are no obvious health concerns, you may wonder if he or she is teething. Recognizing the following signs and symptoms can help you find out if your baby’s new teeth are indeed on the way.

Gum-Rubbing

If your baby is rubbing objects against his or her gums repeatedly, your pediatric dentist will tell you this is a clear sign of the gum irritation or itching that often indicates the start of teething. Be sure to keep unsafe objects out of reach, especially when everything your baby touches seems to end up in his or her mouth.

Drooling

Excessive drooling is also common at the onset of teething. Some babies drool so profusely that they develop a rash on their cheeks and chin. To keep your baby comfortable and dry, change wet clothes often, and keep a dry cloth on hand to wipe saliva from his or her face. If facial rashes are persistent or cause pain, ask dentist health advice.

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 can be very uncomfortable, so try to be patient with your little sourpuss.

Difficulty Sleeping

The discomfort of teething can make it difficult for babies to sleep. Their sleeping patterns may change while they struggle with their emerging teeth, but things will go back to normal once teething is finished. In the meantime, look for a good affordable dentist to take care of your baby’s new teeth when they arrive.

Hunger Strikes

If your baby refuses to eat or eats less than usual, this could also be a symptom of teething. Sucking on a bottle can aggravate sore gums. Keep trying to feed your baby normally. If he or she persistently refuses to eat, consult your pediatrician or pediatric dentist for advice.
