Taking care of your infant’s mouth both before and after they get their teeth is crucial for your baby’s general health. Through proper care, your baby’s dental formula will be healthy when their teeth come in and long after that. Here are ways of caring for your child’s oral health.
– Before teeth eruption, clean your baby’s mouth by placing him/her on your lap and using clean water, dampen a clean, soft, piece of gauze/washcloth then run it along both rows of gums.
– After teeth eruption, floss (where two teeth touch) and use a very small soft-bristled toothbrush and rice-grain sized toothpaste when brushing.
– Consistent oral care by frequently cleaning their teeth, training them oral hygiene and taking them to the dentist.
You can take care of your infant’s mouth daily, regardless of their age.
