    Teething Associated with Pain and Discomfort

    teeth health smile dentist childrenParents are advised against giving their young children painkillers during teething. There are better ways of soothing baby such as applying pressure.
    Key takeaways:
    – The child is their best teacher in the regulation of pain and pressure. They will know when and how much pressure to apply to relieve their pain and discomfort.
