When it comes to the health of your child’s primary teeth, there is no better time than now to start practicing excellent oral hygiene. Pediatric dental care ensures your child’s primary teeth stay healthy and free of decay and other dental diseases.
Good oral hygiene starts as early as infancy. Whether you’re nursing or bottle feeding, you should begin incorporating some type of dental hygiene regimen as soon as possible. Before any teeth erupt, wipe down the gums with gauze or a soft, wet washcloth. Once teeth begin to come in, keep them clean. Using the right set of tools is essential for this daily ritual. For example, it is important to purchase a toothbrush designed specifically for babies, which will have a much smaller head, for their tiny mouths.
