Here at Island Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we are dedicated to the care of your children’s mouths.
Teething may start when a child is four months old and last until the child is two and a half years old. During this time, the child may be unhappy because of sore and tender gums.
It is recommended that during these times parents use a clean finger, cool spoon, or wet gauze to soothe their children’s gums. Many children also enjoy chewing on a clean teething ring to help alleviate some of their pain.
If you have any questions about sore gums and teething, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (919) 295-5849.
