Most parents starts to worry on how to take care of baby tooth after a baby starts to have a teeth.
When does a baby start to have a teeth?
Usually two lower ridges (middle front teeth) come out around 6 months, and 2 upper front teeth come out after a little while. After that, for the 18-24 months, all remaining baby tooth grow, but it may not be in exact order. All 20 baby tooth are there at age 2 to 3.
When a baby starts to have a teeth, the baby not only is frustrated but also drools and takes things to the mouth. If a body temperature is lower than 37.7℃ while getting a teeth, it is normal. If a body temperature exceeds that, consult with your doctor.
What can I do to relieve the pain of a baby?
The baby may feel frustrated because of the uncomfortable feeling of while getting a teeth. To relieve this discomfort, gently rub the baby's gums with clean fingers or wet gauze pads. If you give a cool teething rings, it will calm down the baby’s sensitive gums. Another is to give me a piece of cookie (teething biscuit) or a piece of bread for your baby to chew. You can also use medicines that are applied directly to the gums. You can find it in pharmacies.
After your baby had a first tooth, brush it daily with a soft toothbrush for babies. Cleaning the inside of mouth after eating a food can establish a healthy oral care habit in early days.
