Help docs! i had my lower front teeth scaled, they feel sensitive and irritated. How long is it normal for that to last?

Help docs! i had my lower front teeth scaled, they feel sensitive and irritated. How long is it normal for that to last?

Lower teeth scaling: The more calculus (tarter) that had to be removed, the more sensitivity you can expect, especially if it has been a long time between scalings. The sensitivity should decrease over 7-10 days. It is important to follow the oral hygiene advice of your dentist and dental hygienist. The cleaner you keep your teeth, and the more often you get them cleaned, the less sensitivity you wiil have. ...Read more

9mnth old baby teeth cut through last montg his irritable again this month and has bronchitis could his top teeth be cutting through waking a lot nite?

Possibly: You don't indicate if anything else is going on. Is the baby normal during the day, feeding well, without fever, etc. Also do not indicate who made the diagnosis of bronchitis and whether the cause was determined. A 9 month old should be evaluated by a pediatrician. Good luck and hope he is better soon. ...Read more

When do preemies get their first tooth? I have a 28-weeker who is now 5.5 months (2.5 months adjusted) and she seems to be showing signs of teething (drooling, irritability, chewing/sucking on everything in reach, and not sleeping as much).

When do preemies get their first tooth? I have a 28-weeker who is now 5.5 months (2.5 months adjusted) and she seems to be showing signs of teething (drooling, irritability, chewing/sucking on everything in reach, and not sleeping as much).

Perfectly normal: Some babies are born with at least 1 erupted tooth. Some don't get a tooth until 18 months. 6 months is a little early but well within normal limits. As soon as 1st tooth erupts, but no later than 1st b'day, take baby to pediatric dental specialist, a Pedodontist (for all the same reasons you see a Pediatrician for medical care) for exam, developmental analysis, oral hygiene instruction, etc. ...Read more

Should I be worried if my childs soft spot is raised? He has been irritable but hes also teething, so I figured that was the cause.

Should I be worried if my childs soft spot is raised? He has been irritable but hes also teething, so I figured that was the cause.

Bulging fontanelle? : Worry is a wasted emotion, so i would never recommend it. However, a bulging fontanelle is not normal, and it is not caused by teething. If your baby is cranky with a full or bulging fontanelle then he needs to be immediately seen in the nearest emergency room. This time of year we see late summer viruses which can cause this, but it also may be caused by bacterial meningitis, which is deadly. ...Read more

Is it normal for a 4 month old to have a 100.9 fever while teething? My 4 month old baby just got her first 2 teeth in about a week ago. But today she has been acting really irritable and checked her rectal temperature and it was 100.9. Could this be a ca

A little high: 100.9 is a little high. May be teething, but more probably a cold. Ck w pediatrician. And see a pediatric dentist no later than 1st b'day. 2 or 3 is late. You need to talk to pedodontist about care of baby teeth, diet, hygiene, growth and development of teeth and jaws, Fluoride (remember, permanent teeth are already forming), and so many other things. And your child & the dr can bond. ...Read more
