Baby teeth begin to come through from the age of 6 months old. Baby teeth are important in the development of the permanent teeth and require good care.
By keeping their gums clean even before teeth come through, you will get your baby used to the routine of having their mouth cleaned.
Brush your baby’s teeth twice a day with child-friendly toothpaste when their teeth start to emerge.
Start regular dentist appointments for your baby within 6 months from when their first tooth appears.
“Remember that although a little amount of fluoride is good for your baby’s teeth, if you give too much it results to a condition that is called fluorosis, in which white spots appear on your child’s permanent teeth.”
