Early Infant Dental Care
As a parent, your job is to introduce good oral health behaviors to your children beginning in infancy. Tooth decay affects more children than any other chronic condition, making regular oral and dental care a must from the beginning of your child's life.
Good oral health starts with the habits that parents begin at home with their infants. Before your little one's teeth appear, you will want to wipe your infant's teeth with a clean, damp cloth twice daily to prevent baby bottle tooth decay, (caused by liquids like milk, formula, and fruit juice) and gum disease. As your infant grows and baby teeth begin to appear, you want to brush them with a small, soft bristle toothbrush and the tiniest bit of toothpaste. You will also need to take your children for their first dental visit if you haven't already done so (while there, check with our dental office for recommendations safe for little mouths). When your child is old enough to begin brushing alone, offer assistance in doing it correctly in the morning and before bed.
