Managing the symptoms of teething?
Teething occurs when an infant’s teeth first begin to break through the gums. This typically takes place between the ages of 6 and 12 months.
If an infant is experiencing the typical symptoms of teething, it is possible to treat them at home. Treatments include:
Drying off drool:
Excessive drool can cause skin irritation. Therefore, use a clean cloth to remove excess drool from the chin and mouth area gently. Applying a fragrance free cream or ointment may also soothe irritated skin.
Gently rub the gums with a clean finger or moistened gauze pad to alleviate pain, discomfort, and tenderness.
Apply a cold compress, chilled spoon, or teething ring to the gums. Never give an infant a frozen teething ring as this may cause more harm than good.
Infants who are on solid foods may get relief from chewing on a piece of chilled cucumber or carrot. Monitor them carefully while they are eating as small pieces of food are a choking hazard.

The Family Cosmetic Dentistry staff has always been very pleasant and welcoming! My overall experience since going to them has been excellent. Moreover, Dr. Brigette Ramos has always been accommodating and strives to make sure her patients are content before leaving the office.
My experience was great. I had a crown and a veneer done and it was perfect. They look like my real teeth. Dr Ramos is great she is very knowledgeable. In addition, her assistant Fernando is AMAZING! he is super attentive and serviceable.
From start to finish, the staff at Family Cosmetic Dentistry was amazing! The receptionist, dental hygienist, and Dr Ramos were all super warm and friendly. They took their time, explained everything they were doing throughout the whole process of x rays, and exam. In short, I would recommend this office to absolutely anyone, and I will definitely be going back for a very long time.
I have to admit that I had lost my faith in dental offices. I have been in so many and always came out disappointed until I found Family Cosmetic Dentistry in Weston. Every single person in that office goes beyond any expectations. They are very professional and offer a 5 stars service. In other words, I am more than grateful because thanks to them I can smile again.
Dr. Ramos is very personable and extremely proficient. In addition, she works quickly to minimize the time spent in the dentist’s chair. After several visits for different dental issues I have great trust in her professional abilities as well as his kindness. The staff at this Dental Office is excellent as well.
Just went there this morning to do a checkup. The whole staff at Family Cosmetic Dentistry was super friendly and polite, every person I dealt with was kind and professional. After that, I’ll be back to get my treatment done. Highly recommended.
We always say five stars are not enough; my whole family and even some of our coworkers have been visiting Family Cosmetic Dentistry and their outstanding Dental Staff for over a couple of years now and we couldn’t be any more satisfied. Above all, they’re punctual, reliable, flexible, proactive, and always willing to go that extra mile for the patient. 100% recommended!
It’s near impossible to find a dental office you can trust, that actually cares about your health, that has an amazing staff that makes you feel welcome, all while being incredibly competent. However, Family Cosmetic Dentistry is definitely the best Dental Office in Weston.
Family Cosmetic Dentistry is my favorite place to take care of my teeth. Amazing service and staff. They are all very helpful and answer all of my questions all the time. In addition, they have a very friendly environment and never keep me waiting before my appointment.
