Teething Age In Infants Less Than 1 Month?
My child is only 3 weeks old, but why are his lower teeth teething. Is this natural or not. Thank you
Hello Personal Tata, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Anything that grows early in babies / children will surely cause concern to parents, so it is only natural for you to worry about your baby who is teething even though he is only 3 weeks old.
Teething that you experience from birth is called natal teeth, while teeth that grow after your baby is born (around the first month of life) are called neonatal teeth. Christmas and neonatal teeth are actually teething disorders, but their presence usually does not cause other dangerous symptoms such as fever, fussiness, diarrhea or other symptoms that interfere with their health. Even though it is a dental disorder, its presence is still classified as normal / fine for your baby. The only thing that needs to be considered is that the next tooth growth should be normal or regular in accordance with the place and also dental hygiene which starts to be noticed earlier than in general when the teeth grow in children.
Actually seed teeth have started to develop since the baby was still in the womb, and usually if pregnant women get good nutrition and high calcium intake, sometimes Christmas or neonatal teeth can appear in the baby.
When your child is teething now, what you have to do is pay attention to oral hygiene from now on, because clean teeth and a clean mouth will maintain good quality teeth for the future. We recommend that you clean your teeth using sterile gauze tucked in with your index or pinky finger, and control your child's teeth every 6 months to the dentist so that the growth of their teeth can be monitored properly.
So many explanations from us, hopefully useful.
