Baby Dental Care

As a parent, you want to make your child understand the importance of dental hygiene. However, you need not wait until your child is old enough to brush and floss. Ideally, you could begin a regime for baby dental care even before your baby cuts the first tooth. Dentists advise initiating baby dental care by gently cleaning the baby’s gums even before primary teeth start erupting.

Early baby dental care also helps to guard against baby bottle-tooth decay. This condition occurs in babies who are put to bed with a bottle in their mouth. The sugar in the milk (or juice) contains micro-organisms that attack your baby’s teeth. Baby bottle-tooth decay can be quite severe in some children.

Follow these techniques to start with a routine for preventive baby dental care:
