How Adults Wearing Teething Jewelry Can Help Kids

Posted on 9/21/2020 by Lanier Valley Dentistry
How Adults Wearing Teething Jewelry Can Help KidsOne of your child's first experiences with pain will be going through the process of getting their baby teeth. As these sharp little munchers begin to erupt, your child's gums will become swollen and inflamed, causing them to drool and instinctively reach for anything to gnaw on to ease the pressure.

As a parent, it's difficult to see our children suffer, especially when they are too young to understand why they are in pain, when it's going to end, or how to communicate their feelings about it. From sticking a bent knuckle in their mouth to an ice cube wrapped in a washcloth, parents have been finding resourceful ways to ease teething pain for as long as it has existed.

What Is Teething Jewelry?

Today there are even more inventive options for alleviating teething pain, including the use of teething necklaces and bracelets. These products come in many different shapes, textures, and colors to make them more appealing to your child, as well as different materials that vary in function. Silicone necklaces provide a hard surface that can be textured or smooth to fit your child's needs and preferences, for instance, while teething necklaces made from amber release succinic acid when chewed, which is believed to reduce inflammation.

Benefits of Wearing Teething Jewelry for Your Child

The surfaces of teething jewelry are relatively resistant to bacterial growth, considering all of the unsanitary items a teething child might shove in their mouth. Additionally, the surfaces are easy to clean and can be run through your dishwasher on the top rack. You can also chill teething jewelry in the fridge, making it even more soothing for painful gums. Finally, teething necklaces provide a way to keep your baby's hands and eyes occupied while nursing.

No matter how you look at it, teething is a rough time for children. However, teething jewelry is an excellent way to ease the pain of teething and keep your child's hands busy while yours are more than full. For more information about how to ease the teething process for your child, contact our office for a consultation and initial exam.
