The dentist appointment should be when she has most or all of her teeth. They usually like to see them around two years of age. As for the teething if you have tried EVERYTHING and nothing has worked, you can go to the old days of theething methods. Stick you finger in jack daniels have barley a drop on it and rub it on the gums. It works I swear and it doesnt get your kid drunk and its not bad for there teeth unless you do it all the time.

for Ava we use ashton n parsons powders with dennitox teething gel with teeting rings, when its really bad i get a bath mit i use to put ice into n crush, that way she can bite on it n suck the water through it n if that dont help 5ml of baby nurrofen. so far thats worked for her but every child is different, also dennitox do a teething toothpaste with a rubber finger brush, as yet we havent had to use that so dont know if it is suitable for your little one. my big sister took her boys to the dentist as soon as the 1st tooth was through, jus to get advice on cleaning, toothpaste etc. its better to get them used to the dentist as early as possible :) arlene

i have done the jack daniels thing and it really does work, my son is horrible with his teeth coming in but he is happy when we play, so i give a dose of Motrin and then play real well for about an hour before bed and he sleeps like a baby, if you can keep them happy when they hurt and let the meds kick in it should work. But i love the waffle idea!! that is awesome!

try slicing a banana and freezing it... you might have to cut the slices in half or quarters but my daughter loves "chewing" on the frozen banana:)

Try frozen waffles, this is what helps my son the most! The are cold on theire teeth and gums and also a good snack when they thaw!

I use the teething tablets and Tylenol when it's really bad. Have you used any regular pain medicines?

Hi Shannon. I always use Prodol teething syrup or Aston and Parsons teething powder rubbed onto the gums. I also give a dose of Paracetamol for the pain. Good Luck.
