Best Remedies for Teething Babies

Teething isn’t fun. It can be a painful process for babies when those teeth first come in. We want to give you some safe and effective tips for you to help ease your little one’s pain.

Ice

Sometimes the old remedies are the best. Just like a bruise on an adult you put an ice pack on, cold therapy can help. Do not use an icepack! Those are filled with harmful chemicals that are poisonous to ingest. The best way we have found is to freeze a washcloth for about half an hour. Let your child chew on it. When using other items other than a washcloth, be sure it is big enough not to swallow.

Bananas

A chilled banana can have a cooling and soothing effect. The consistency of a banana acts as a natural massager for your child’s gums and the chilling effect can help as well.

Gum Massage

Event without a natural ointment, a simple gum massage with your fingers could help relieve pain. Read your child’s body language to see what works best for them.

We’ve had 2 visits at this office for my 2 year old. Both visits have been during the pandemic. This office is so clean and I’ve never had to share a waiting room with anyone. Wait times have been less than 10 minutes. Dr. Gallo is so wonderful. Their expertise and professionalism is outstanding. Everyone that works in the office is friendly and great with kids.

Southwoods consistently exceeds my expectations. They are kind and courteous, and always help my children develop better habit with brushing and flossing. They take thier time, and the quality of the service really comes through with each visit. I have now been using Southwoods for over a year, and won't be moving to another pediatric dentist anytime soon. These guys are awesome, thier facilities are clean, and organized and most importantly everything is kid friendly.

Dr. Gallo and her staff are amazing. I have a special needs son who was afraid of the dentist. They were great with him and my daughter. She made them feel comfortable and relaxed while she quickly did what she needed to. I recommend them highly.

We had an urgent situation with our 2-year-old. They squeezed us in same-day and they were simply wonderful with her! They put on her favorite show to watch during the exam and gave her lots of little prizes for being good. Highly recommend!
