2. What exactly does OralSoothe help with?

OralSoothe is a safe, non-addictive, FDA registered natural remedy containing 100% homeopathic ingredients especially selected to relieve teething-related tooth and gum pain and fussiness, plus strengthen new teeth in babies. OralSoothe’s homeopathic ingredients promote harmony and balance during the teething process to alleviate crying, soothe the gums, reduce drooling and other upsets associated with teething.

OralSoothe is presented in very fine baby-friendly granule form and is specially formulated for safety during infancy, containing no alcohol or synthetic ingredients which could be harmful to your baby. In addition, the natural biochemic tissue salts in the remedy can help to promote strong, healthy teeth.

3. What does OralSoothe contain?

OralSoothe is a homeopathic formula which contains the following ingredients:

  • Chamomilla (6C) is a well-known remedy for teething and can help to soothe children who are cranky and miserable while cutting a tooth. In fact, Chamomilla was mentioned in Beatrix Potter's wonderful childhood tales - Peter Rabbit's mother used Chamomile to put her little bunnies to sleep!
  • Calc flour (6X) is a biochemic tissue salt which is important for teeth, skin and bones. Calc flour is useful for soothing gums during the teething process and can also help to calm cranky babies. Although related, it should not be associated with Fluoride, which is often given to children for strengthening teeth.
  • Calc phos (6X) is another biochemic tissue salt which promotes strength to the body and is useful during times of growth and development. It is also excellent for promoting healthy circulation, bones and teeth.
  • Passiflora (3X) is also called Passion Flower and has been studied for its ability to support relaxation and calmness. (Akhondzadeh, S., Naghavi, H. R., Vazirian, M., Shayeganpour, A., Rashidi, H., and Khani, M. "Passion flower in the treatment of generalized anxiety: a pilot double- blind randomized controlled trial with oxazepam". J Clin Pharm Ther 2001;26(5):363-367).
  • Sucrose (inactive ingredient)

OralSoothe is presented in pleasant tasting easy to administer sucrose granules.

4. How do I use OralSoothe?

Chew or dissolve these very small pleasant-tasting granules directly in the mouth. This method is safe for even small babies. 

Babies: Administer a small pinch onto your baby's tongue.

Special instructions: May be repeated after 20 minutes for up to 10 doses if necessary.

Caution: If symptoms persist or worsen, a health care professional should be consulted.

5. In what form does OralSoothe come?

OralSoothe comes in a baby-friendly granule, which is sprinkled onto your baby’s tongue where it will dissolve.

6. What is the shelf life?

The product expiration date can be found on the label.  Please note: Some bottle types have the expiration date printed directly onto the bottle itself.

8. What are the signs that my child is teething?

Increased irritability, drooling, putting objects into the mouth and disturbed sleep are all associated with teething. Some less common effects are fever, diarrhea and red, swollen gums. Your baby's appetite may also be affected.

9. How long will the teething last?

From the first signs that your child is teething to when the tooth actually comes through the gum, will be approximately 1-2 months. Of course this is repeated for every new tooth and teething can sometimes seem to go on forever. However, one day it will all be over and there is generally some respite in-between teeth!

10. What else can I do?

Give your baby something cold to chew like a teething ring chilled in the fridge or even a clean wet washcloth.

Massage the gums firmly with your finger. It may feel uncomfortable for your baby at first but will gradually ease the pain and relax your little one.

Don't worry too much about your baby's appetite or put pressure on him or her to eat - everything will go back to normal when the offending tooth comes through!
