Early Childhood Dental Care
There are two set of teeth that evolves during a person’s entire life span. Caring for the baby tooth is a resounding yes. They help in aiding a child’s development. Early childhood decay is usually caused when babies are put to sleep with a bottle of milk containing sugar (natural sugar) also. Breast feeding/nursing also causes decay because it contains sugar and babies are nursed to sleep with the ignorance of cleaning the mouth.
1. Even before the teeth are erupted; clean/wipe gums and cheeks with a moistened cloth or dental wipe such as tooth tissue.
2. HELP THE LITTLE HELPERS- since lot of kids insist on brushing teeth on their own, let them .Use a second brush to clean it thoroughly. Usually parents are recommended to supervise child’s brushing until the age of 6 to 7.
