In this article, I will be discussing the role of homeopathy during the dentition or teething process in a child.
The first appearance of teeth varies from one baby to another. Most babies develop the first tooth between six to 12 months of age. Some babies may not have any teeth by 1 year of age which is completely normal. Usually, babies put their fingers and hands in their mouth at around three to four months when they start having increased salivation. And after a few months, that is, at around six to seven months of age, they start developing teeth. Babies usually have developed all teeth by the age of 3.
During this process of dentition, babies are very irritable, fussy, lose appetite, and drool which is all very normal. All babies go through these symptoms during dentition. However, immediate attention is required when babies get fever, diarrhea, or develop rashes on the body. During such times, it is advisable to seek medical attention or visit your physician for a check up.
Sometimes, even after giving the required medications, babies do not feel comfortable and their physical symptoms do not subside. The irritability increases day by day which makes parents more irritable causing effect on their health as well. To avoid this situation, it is best to try homeopathy as soon as babies start developing teeth. Homeopathic remedies will help and soothe the entire process of dentition and babies will not have to go through all the fuss. As we know, homeopathic medicines have fewer side effects, it can be safely used in the babies. Depending on the symptoms, remedies can be prescribed.
Best Homeopathic Remedies for Teething Troubles
Above mentioned remedies are very commonly used by homeopaths during dentition trouble. However, there are many other remedies that can be prescribed for this issue. These remedies can be prescribed based on the symptoms and general condition of the babies. Remedies can be frequently given if the condition is very acute. Otherwise, two or three doses are enough.
