Baby tooth care


Baby teeth care is a very important aspect, especially since the baby's smile is incomparable.

Although, in the end, the baby's teeth, also called the milk teeth, will be replaced by permanent teeth, the baby's teeth must be very well taken care of, HealthDay News reports.
Specialist dentists have some recommendations regarding baby tooth care:

  • It is never too early to start tooth washing. As soon as the first baby teeth appeared, you should start brushing twice a day with a soft damp cloth.
  • Once the baby is one year old, tooth brushing can be done with a toothbrush and toothpaste (which does not contain fluoride) specially designed for babies.
  • Until the age of one year it is recommended that the baby pay a visit to a pediatric dental office. In addition, regular visits to a dentist, recommended every 6 months, should not be neglected.
  • It is preferable to avoid the juice, which can contain a lot of sugar and thus can lead to the appearance of tooth decay. In addition, the baby's pacifier should not be soaked in subs
  • The baby should not be given the bottle after he or she reaches the age of 1 year, because there is a risk of baby bottle decay
