There are several things you can do to keep your baby’s teeth in excellent health:
– Before the first teeth appear, wipe the gums to keep them clean.
– As soon as their very first tooth emerges you can clean it using a soft baby toothbrush.
– Take baby to visit the dentist so they learn that regular dental checkups are normal and not to be feared.
– Avoid giving baby sugary juice or milk at bedtime as these can encourage decay.
“Experts recommend starting taking your baby to the dentist within six months after the first tooth erupts or around your baby’s first birthday whichever is first.”
