What to do when a child's tooth is cut
The picture, when a child's tooth is cut, most often looks like this: the whole house literally costs on the ears! Mom, dad, grandmother, grandfather, mother's friend, grandmother's friend - everyone is trying to calm the sufferer who constantly yells and scratches the gum all that gets into the open mouth. The child is handed over from hand to hand, not knowing what to do.
Very rarely in children, teeth erupt in a way that does not cause inconvenience to them and others.
And it also happens that at this time the baby rises high fever, diarrhea begins, vomiting.
If you have a toothache like this, how can you help your child?
Ah, those teeth!
First of all, you need to make sure that the anxious state of the baby is associated with the eruption of the teeth, and not with any disease. To understand that these are exactly them, it is possible by abundant salivation, which begins weeks 2 before the appearance of the first incisor.
It can be seen that the problem is in the teeth, and on the gums. They swell and blush. In some cases, when the child's tooth is cut, you can see a bruise on the gums. There is nothing terrible in this phenomenon. A clot of blood under the mucosa is caused by the fact that the tooth has crushed a blood vessel.
If parents did not prepare in advance, did not buy special "rodents", then you can calm the pain in the gums with a cold compress. The decoction of chamomile must be impregnated with a tissue napkin and cooled in a freezer. A rag is given to the baby to chew. This way for a while will help him calm down.
Yet to acquire "rodents", when a child has a tooth cut, it is necessary. Particularly effective help to remove the itching in the gums of the device, which should be frozen before use. The pain successfully removes the gel, which is applied directly to the rodent. Self-itching the gum with a teaspoon, a piece of sugar, or even just a finger is not recommended. You can bring an infection. Massaging the baby's gum is very convenient with a special massage brush. Its design is designed so as not to damage the delicate mucous membrane.
As mentioned above, when a child has a tooth cut, a temperature may appear. If it becomes more than 38 degrees, it must be knocked down. To do this, special means are purchased for children, the drug Nurofen is most often used. No "quarters" of aspirin! Self-activity in this case is fraught with deteriorating the health of the baby.
It is very important to carefully wash the things that the child is dragging into his mouth. It is necessary to watch, that in its or his organism the infection has not got.
Terms of teething
To say that this tooth got out on time, but this one was too late, it is impossible. They in children erupt absolutely individually. It happens that the child has lived 3 months - teeth are cut. And some babies gum for the first time swells almost a year.
If a baby has teeth erupted early, then women often excommunicate such a "kusak" from the chest.
There are special pads for breastfeeding. If you buy them, then you will not have to translate the infant into artificial mixtures.
You can predict in advance when a child has a tooth cut, where it appears. The first incisors appear. In a couple of months, the top will come out. By the year the baby's mouth usually has 6-8 new beautiful teeth. If only my mother takes good care of them.
Care of the first teeth
You need to watch your teeth from the day they appeared. Clean with a pimply rubber soft brush, very gently massaging the gums. To watch, that on a teeth there was no scurf. You can not press hard to avoid damaging the tender unformed roots. It is necessary to show the child to the dentist, that he examined the "subject of pride" for damage. Unfortunately, due to poor water or congenital infections, sometimes the teeth begin to break down in children immediately after they erupt.
