Teething: What makes it flare up at night?

August 11, 2014

Why teething pain is worse at night? Every wondered why a baby plays happily drooling during the day but at night he/she seems distressed or in pain?

During the night the nerve and pulp chamber inflame sending off a throbbing pain into the jaw, base of skull and even set off the facial nerve endings!
The circadian rhythms and pain perception also play a part in this painful jaw and facial nerve fiasco. 

So what is your baby experiencing? The first stage of teething (when the tooth is in the gum bed) can cause a dull throbbing sensation during sleep, the second stage (when reaches mid gum) sets off the facial nerves due to inflammation causing a throbbing pain. So you can imagine how hard it is for a baby to find a comfy spot with no pillow. The last stage of teething (the cutting) affects eating more than sleep, this is because the nerves are exposed and any acidic food or temperature that causes sensitivity will bother your baby. This is why children often go off their foods during the tooth cutting stage.

There are a few techniques that can relieve the inflammation

 

  1. Massaging the knuckle of the big toes in a clockwork motion before bed and using the acupressure points during the day
     

  2. Give Nurofen which helps relieve pain and inflammation by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins
     

  3. Natural Baltic amber which is renowned for its electrostatic properties. It's is a natural analgesic with anti-inflammatory properties and helps eliminate free radicals and discourages disruptions of the cardiac rhythm.
