How can we care our baby teeth?
Even before the first tooth appears, get used to wipe your child’s gums with a clean corner of a wet washcloth. This provides hygiene to the mouth and acclimates your baby to having her mouth cleaned.
When your baby has his first tooth, you could begin with brushing. It will be easier to get into the habit if you make brushing part of the cleaning you do after each feeding.
Get teeth brushed and learn to do it by themselves is important for chewing, speech, and normal development of the jaw bones of the babies.
Dentists recommend that a baby see a dentist for the first time by 12 months, or as soon as he has teeth.
This visit sets the stage for good dental health because you’ll receive advice from the dentist or hygienist on how to best care for your baby’s teeth and manage her diet.
