Teething After Age 2 – Your Baby’s Changing Mouth
It's a common mistake: your baby turns two years old, and someone tells you that teething is over. Unfortunately, that isn't true! Your toddler will still get teeth well into their second year.
The Myth: Toddler Teething Doesn’t Happen
Just because your toddler is now two years old doesn't mean the teeth stop coming. Children’s teeth come in at all different ages, and stages, including after they are two years old.
The Truth: Teething Takes Time
The first of the 20 primary teeth begin to appear in most children around 6-8 months of age. In fact, your baby’s second molars start to come in
around their second birthday. Unfortunately, these larger teeth can be especially uncomfortable for your baby.
The Good News: Toddler Teething Pain Relief
Once your child has reached the age of two, he or she can now use over-the-counter, teething products medicated with Benzocaine for instant pain relief. Consult your physician or pediatrician prior to giving your child a medicated teething product.
