What to do when your child is teething?

Some teeth come through with no trouble at all. In other cases, the gum may be sore and red where the tooth is pushing its way out. A child may gnaw and chew a lot or just be fretful, but it is difficult to tell if this is really due to teething.

> It can be helpful to give the child something hard to chew on.
> Start brushing as soon as teeth appear.
> Brush thoroughly twice a day, just before bed is important.
> Help your child brush until they are able to do it well by themselves, usually around the age of seven.
> Use fluoride toothpaste and encourage your child to spit after brushing; do not rinse afterwards as this reduces    the benefits of the fluoride in the toothpaste.
> Use a tiny smear of toothpaste for babies and a pea-sized amount for children.
> Young children will swallow the toothpaste; use a children`s toothpaste with reduced fluoride until they are able    to spit well.
> Visit a dentist regularly to get your child used to the surgery.
> Reduce the amount of sugary food or drinks you give your child and limit these to mealtimes.
> Only give water or plain milk in a bottle. Juices should be diluted and given in a cup.
> Limit fizzy drinks and natural fruit juices as they contain sugar and are acidic. This causes decay and erosion,    which will dissolve the teeth.
> Teach your children how to brush their teeth and tell them the importance of keeping their teeth clean.
