How to Help Your Child While Teething

Teething

Has your child ever been to a dentist? Smile Workshop is a family dental office that provides full-service dental work to both children and adults. It is very important to monitor and take care of your child’s dental health even when they don’t have teeth.

Here are some tips that will benefit your child’s oral health while he or she is teething:

Rub Your Child’s Gums

If your child is currently teething, he or she has very tender and sore gums. Gently rubbing his or her gums with your clean finger or a cool cotton swab will help ease the pain of teething.

Keep Teething Rings Clean

Teething rings are also a good way to ease your child’s sore gums. However, be sure that you thoroughly clean any teething ring or other dental product for babies like pacifiers.

Use the Proper Size Toothbrush and the Right Amount of Toothpaste

Children’s teeth and mouths are not the same size as an adult’s. Make sure to use the right size toothbrush when you brush your child’s teeth. When it comes to toothpaste, use about a “pea-sized” amount of fluoride toothpaste.

Bring Your Child to Smile Workshop at a Young Age

Taking your child to the dentist at a young age will significantly help him or her avoid future dental issues. Smile Workshop has pedodontists (a dentist who specializes in treating children’s teeth) who can help your child with any dental issue.

Smile Workshop has eight locations throughout Texas (Cedar Hill, Dallas, Timber Creek, Balch Springs, Hurst, Denton, Amarillo and San Antonio) and can help you and your child achieve positive oral health. Make sure your child grows up having healthy teeth. Call Smile Workshop and schedule an affordable dental appointment today.
