What you need to know about your child's teeth eruption


Posted on 3/7/2022 by Classic Smiles
What you need to know about your child's teeth eruptionTeeth development starts as early as pregnancy. Infants are born with a set of twenty teeth that start to erupt at the age of six months all through until the child is ready for preschool. They then start shedding off, and a set of new and permanent teeth emerge. Tooth eruption, therefore, refers to the breaking through of the tooth from beneath the gum line.

The teething process


Eruption always follows the exact sequence in all infants. The lower incisors come out first, followed by the upper, then the canines, and last to erupt are the premolars that aid in chewing. Teething might be an uncomfortable process for the baby. Drooling, biting on things, fussiness, diarrhea. Disrupted sleep and eating patterns, crying, and rash are significant signs of teething. The process usually takes at least eight days, four days before and after the eruption.

A parent might help ease this situation by providing chew rings and wet towels to lessen the discomfort. Gentle massages also help relieve the discomfort. Teething rings should be chilled, not frozen. Cold pressure helps to relieve pain, swelling, and discomfort.

OTC pain-relieving medication such as paracetamol help to ease the discomfort and is well tolerated by babies. A parent might also provide unsweetened snacks to chew on, for example, biscuits and rusks. The parent must dry the drool from the face as often as it causes rashes and sores in the chin area. These rashes are easily irritated, cause discomfort, and give way to other skin infections.

Baby teeth care


Sometimes, parents ignore baby teeth care as they are not as important as permanent teeth since they shed off. However, it is advised to practice healthy oral practices as early as possible to help foster a positive attitude towards maintaining oral hygiene in the future. Maintaining good oral hygiene also helps prevent various dental diseases like cavities and periodontal diseases. Brushing and flossing twice a day regularly visiting the dentist for checkups help prevent and diagnose diseases.
