Active Ingredients

Mallow Leave Extract (Malva sylvestris)

Malva sylvestris is a plant known as common mallow and is native to Europe, North Africa and Asia.

Studies of this herb revealed the presence of numerous active substances: polysaccharides, anthocyanins, tannins, flavonoids, mucillagen and essential oils.

Mucilages are natural gelatinous substances which are responsible for forming a local protective film on mouth mucosa.

They exert a smoothing and soothing effect on oral mucosa of babies and children, normally inflamed during the eruption of the teeth.

Panthenol

Panthenol is well known ingredient for treatment of skin, mucosa and hair. It is easily absorbed by the skin. It improves hydration of the mucosa. It exerts a smoothing action and promotes tissue regeneration.

Teething discomfort usually starts within baby’s first six months.

The pain and discomfort of teething is something every baby – and mum – has to endure. The crying and restlessness, as well as fever, rashes and upset tummies, can be worrying, and may disturb sleep as well as family life. Fortunately, teething symptoms soon subside once the tooth is through. As a mum or dad though, you will want to do all you can to help baby through the distress as safely, gently and effectively as possible.

Teething discomfort is distressing for the baby & the whole family

A baby will usually feel pain from a few days before a new tooth starts to push through the gums. Once through, the pain and discomfort starts to subside.

Drooling and biting or chewing on hard objects are classic signs that a baby is teething. A baby will produce lots of saliva which can sometimes irritate the skin around the mouth.

For many babies, the pain seems to be worse at night. Thus, waking at night during teething is common.

Earache, diarrhoea or a nappy rash can be a problem as well as a slight rise in the body temperature, also known as “teething fever”.

See a doctor though, if your baby’s temperature goes over 38.5 °C, or if the baby is suddenly unwell, or vomiting.

A cool gel-filled teething ring to chew on can help ease the gum pain. Another option is Dentokind®, which can significantly reduce symptoms, gently and effectively.

Teething - common signs and symptoms

  • increased salivation / drooling (often begins before teething starts)
  • baby's gums are swollen, red, sensitive and aching
  • bites and chews on solid objects
  • baby's cheeks are sometimes hot and flushed
  • mild rash around the mouth due to skin irritation caused by excessive drooling
  • earache
  • the child is irritable (e.g. weepy, restless, cranky, aggressive, …)
  • sleeping problems
  • gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g. diarrhoea)
  • slight rise in body temperature (”teething fever”)

Teething –pain, crying, and general discomfort

Teething is a normal part of development usually starting at any point in the first six months of an infant’s life. The lower front teeth (lower central incisors) are normally the first to appear, followed by the top front teeth (upper central incisors). All 20 deciduous or milk teeth should be in place by about 30 months. Teething may be experienced a second time when permanent teeth start to erupt at the age of around six years.

As good oral hygiene routines should also be established early on, a consultation on teething is a great opportunity to get advice on cleaning teeth as soon as they start to appear. For young infants, cleaning might be easiest with a soft wet cloth until a brush can be used.

Teething: Possible treatments

Local

  • Local interventions:
  • Rub or massage baby's gums with a clean finger
  • Offer teething aids (“teethers”) such as teething rings, toys or biscuits to chew on
  • Offer chilled foods, such as yoghurt or purred fruits
  • Good dental care is starting with baby´s first tooth:
  • clean the baby´s teeth once a day with a soft, wet washing cloth
  • at 12 months of age, a small soft toothbrush with water can be used
  • add a small dab of toothpaste (there are special preparations for children) as the child grows older

Avoid continuous and extended exposure to sugared liquids (“baby bottle tooth decay”). First dental visit should occur by the age of one or within 6 months after eruption of first tooth.

Pharmaceutical

  • Pharmaceutical interventions:
  • Local anaesthetics in teething gels to rub on the painful and swollen baby´s gums
  • Analgetics (e.g. paracetamol, ibuprofen)

Behavioural

  • Behavioural interventions:
  • Try to calm down the child by offering an atmosphere of security (“calmness, closeness, cuddling”)
  • Avoid causing the child additional stress

Naturopathic

  • Naturopathic interventions:
  • Homeopathic medicines such as e.g. Dentokind®

CAVE: Seek medical advice if additional complaints arise and /or symptoms are serious or persist, to rule out other conditions for Baby´s crying.
