In brief: None needed
Although no treatment is needed for teething, if your child is experiencing pain, baby tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin (with the correct dosing) will usually help most.
You can also try a chilled pacifier or teething ring.

In brief: Supportive care
You can use teething rings and damp frozen wash clothes for you child to help with the process of teething.
Use the appropriate amount tylenol (acetaminophen) for severe teething discomfort. Avoid using medications that you rub on the gums b/c it only will last for 10 to 15 minutes and will not provide lasting relief.

In brief: Cold teething rings
The best treatment is cold teething rings.
You can also give infant tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen for a particularly bad spell.
