Teething occurs as the tooth starts its journey into the mouth. During this process the gum becomes inflamed which can be painful. All babies are different and there is wide variation but most babies will get their first tooth between 6 months and their first birthday. Some babies are born with their first tooth others but generally you may expect to see some signs of teething from around 4 – 6 months. Some babies don’t bat an eyelid in the process of getting teeth while others will announce its progression every minute step of the way! Teething gets blamed for a lot of things. It can be difficult for new parents to know what is what. The NHS website has advice on teething and how to identify when your baby’s upset may not be teeth related.
There have been concerns over the ingredients in many teething gels available in the UK. Alcohol can be found which may actually make your baby more awake which sugar (sucrose) can lead to tooth decay. Others contain lidocaine, a local anaesthetic which can pose a risk of overdose.

Oral care should start before even the first tooth arrives in the mouth. Using Xylitol wipes to gently wipe the gums helps create a healthy environment in the mouth as well as getting your little one use to you cleaning. As soon as the first tooth appears start to brush. Use a small brush and a smear of fluoride toothpaste with at least 1000ppm fluoride. Brush all surfaces last thing at night and one other time every day. As you start to introduce solid foods beware ‘free sugars’. Learn more about sugar and xylitol here. Water and plain milk should be the only drinks offered to your baby and toddler.
Don’t forget to register your baby with the dentist and plan for them to have their first dental visit by their first birthday. This will be a good start for learning about your child’s oral health and ensuring they have a healthy smile for life.
How to use – with clean hands, spread a small amount over the area and massage into the gum gently. We suggest using your little finger. Use before bed and after meals. A film will form on the gum and give relief. Use 3-6 times per day or as required. See image gallery for more information.
