Abstract

Introduction: Several other symptoms may also be present when children are teething. They include drooling, swollen gums, rhinorrhea, and loss of appetite. These symptoms can be treated by using several methods, which include gingival massage and comforting bottles.

Materials and methods: We used a closed-ended questionnaire, which was constructed online using Google forms. The survey was sent out using emails, social media websites, etc. We used a convenient sampling technique targeting mothers having at least one child under the age of 2 years.

Results: We found statistically significant comparisons when inquired about smoking-related to painful teething in babies and teething causing ear infection, in both cases the mothers having 5 or more children had higher responses.

Conclusion: Mothers having more experience with children showed slightly better awareness of the overall information and management of teeth process.
