When young children experience teething pain, it's natural for concerned parents to want to help. But for the past several years we have been using over-the-counter (OTC) treatments for teething discomfort that contain benzocaine. Now, the agency is taking action to get the products off store shelves because they are associated with a rare but potentially dangerous illness.
According to a May 23, 2018 press release, "OTC oral health products containing the pain reliever benzocaine for the temporary relief of sore gums due to teething in infants or children should no longer be marketed and [the FDA] is asking companies to stop selling these products for such use. If companies do not comply, the FDA will initiate a regulatory action to remove these products from the market."
Benzocaine, a topical anesthetic (pain reliever), is marketed under a number of brand names. It's also available as a generic medication or a store brand, and may come in the form of a gel, spray, ointment or lozenge. Regardless of the name or the form, however, it's unsafe for babies and young children to use.
What's the trouble with benzocaine? The medication is associated with a disease called methemoglobinemia—an uncommon but serious and potentially fatal condition. This illness occurs when the blood contains elevated levels of methemoglobin, a hemoglobin-like protein. Because methemoglobin carries less oxygen to body tissues than hemoglobin, an excess of this substance can cause shortness of breath, fatigue and dizziness—and in more severe cases, seizures, coma and death. Several drugs, including some local anesthetics like benzocaine and lidocaine, can trigger a large increase in methemoglobin levels. The problem is especially acute in young children.
So what can parents do to ease discomfort that may be caused by teething? According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, there are a number of simple things that may help.
  • Give young children a clean rubber teething ring that has been chilled in the refrigerator (not frozen), or a cold, wet washcloth to chew on. A chilled pacifier may also be helpful—but be sure anything you put in baby's mouth is free of potentially harmful substances like lead paint.
  • Try gently massaging the gums with a clean finger—this can counteract the pressure of an emerging tooth and help soothe the irritation.
  • If pain persists, ask your doctor or pharmacist to recommend an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, in a dosage that's appropriate for your child. However, do not give your child alcohol in any form!

Healthier Snacks on the go!



We all know that brushing and flossing are important for dental health. But consuming a balanced diet rich in nutritious, low-sugar foods is also important. Sometimes life can get busy and families need to snack while away from home. Here’s a list of healthy snacks for when you’re on the go:

Nuts

Nuts are a great healthy alternative to potato chips or other salty snacks. They are rich in vitamins and minerals that help build stronger teeth. Chewing nuts promotes saliva production that naturally protects and cleans your teeth by clearing the mouth of food particles and acid buildup that can lead to the formation of cavities.

Fresh Fruits and Crunchy Vegetables

Fresh fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins and nutrients important for your child’s overall health. The act of chewing crisp fruits and veggie scrubs away food particles and plaque and promotes saliva production, which can help prevent cavities. Fruits and vegetables are a perfect alternative for the pre-bagged cookie and cracker snacks that are high in added sugar and have little to no nutritional value.
  • Apples are full of fiber and the thick skin scrubs your teeth, gums and tongue to help fight plaque buildup.
  • Celery has high a water content and is an excellent snack option for your teeth. Because it’s crunchy, celery massages the gums as you chew and scrapes away bad bacteria from the teeth.
  • Carrots are full of fiber and vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for strengthening the tooth enamel. Carrots also stimulate saliva production, which cleans teeth and helps prevent the buildup of bad bacteria that can lead to cavities.

Cheese and Dairy

Cheese and other dairy products such as milk and low-fat yogurts are low in sugar and high in calcium and protein, which are the minerals that build stronger teeth and bones. String cheese and other handheld cheese snacks are much better for teeth than chips and starchy snacks.

Lean Proteins

Lean proteins like fish, chicken, and eggs have high amounts of phosphorous, a mineral that is important in protecting tooth enamel. Snacks like chicken salad with nuts and celery, or a tuna sandwich with whole wheat bread will give your child a healthy energy boost before any after-school event.

Don’t Forget the Water

Instead of reaching for a juice box, soda or a sports drink, choose water. Encouraging your kids to swish water around in their mouth after they’ve eaten a snack can help remove debris caught in their teeth that can lead to enamel loss and acid buildup.
In addition to choosing healthy snacks, it’s important to brush and floss daily, and maintain regular checkups with the dentist.
