Drowninginboys is right - very helpful!
Teething tablets help take the edge off the crankiness, help calm the baby down. They do not take the pain away though. You still need pain meds to do that.
I've also found teething tablets helpful when my daughter gets over stimulated and over tired and can't calm down - like after a full day of company and extra people playing with her. She gets so worked up that she can't slow down, relax, and sleep. The tablets help take the edge off enough to let her relax.
