Baby teething is a very difficult process. If you have ever had your wisdom teeth come in or have had any teeth problems at all, imagine that multiplied exponentially. That is what a baby goes through when all of his or her teeth are coming in—it is very painful! Because this is such a harrowing process, it is possible to have quite a few problems arise with baby teething. Here is some information on baby teething problems.
In years past, it was simply assumed that a baby who was teething would have a fever. It was not even looked at as a baby teething problem. Instead, a fever simply accompanied the teething process. However, today doctors say that fevers are not associated with teething. This can be a bit misleading, because fever actually is a baby teething problem. Teething can cause pressure on the ear canal as well as the sinuses. The sinuses can become infected because of this. In addition, the ear canals having pressure put on them can lead to ear infections. The ear canal can get backed up with fluid and the fluid can grow bacteria and get infected. These infections can cause fevers. The reasons why doctors do not say that fevers are baby teething problems is because previously parents did not seek medical attention for their babies when they had a fever while teething. However, if your baby has a fever while teething, do not just pass it off as a baby teething problem. While it is, it still needs to be addressed and the baby will most likely need to be treated with antibiotics.
The most common baby teething problem is the pain that baby teething brings. There are quite a few different ways that you can help alleviate the pain from baby teething. First, you can try something small to alleviate mild to moderate baby teething problems. You can give your baby a baby teething ring for him or her to chew on. These teething rings are made of soft plastic and are filled with a liquid so that they are very gummy and squishy for a baby to chew on. This will feel great on your baby’s gums. Second, if the baby’s pain is moderate to extreme, you can always give your little one some baby painkillers to help with this baby teething problem. Make sure to talk to your doctor about correct dosages and to discuss the type of pain medication that you chose to use for your baby.
