This fall the FDA came out and recommended against the use of teething tablets stating they were an unsafe way to combat teething.

Teething tablets are all natural supplements. Alligator Dental parents have been on both ends of the spectrum in their opinion of teething tablets: some swear by them and some say they are a waste of money. In the past Alligator Dental has only recommended them as a last resort.

Official reports are not fully clear on what caused the FDA to change their support of teething tablets. However, in light of the new declaration, and for the safety of our smallest patients, we feel it is best to abide by the FDA decision and discontinue support of teething tablets as well.
