Dental Care for Early Childhood


Establish good dental care habits now, and enjoy your little one’s healthy smile for years to come

It’s never too early to begin caring for your child’s teeth. Here are a few guidelines to help parents manage their child’s dental care needs from infancy and throughout early childhood.

Birth – 12 months                                                              

 Parents of infants can help set the stage for healthy teeth and gums in the first year of a child’s life.
  • After feedings, brush the child’s mouth with water using a soft-bristled baby toothbrush or a soft washcloth.
  • Schedule regular check-ups with your child’s pediatrician, who will check your baby’s mouth as part of the examination.
  • The American Dental Association recommends a first visit with the dentist by 12 months of age.
    12 months – Age 2
 Once a child’s baby teeth have come in (the first tooth usually appears between four months and 12 months; and all baby teeth, including molars, should come in before age three), proper brushing and dental care becomes even more important.
  • Begin to teach your child proper brushing habits by cleaning his or her teeth twice a day, morning and evening. Parents, you will need to do the cleaning at this age, but this routine will also help prepare your child to brush alone when ready.
  • Brush your child’s teeth with a soft-bristled brush and non-fluoride toothpaste designed for toddlers. Brush the fronts and backs of teeth, as well as your child’s tongue. (Children at this age are too young for fluoride toothpaste, but they should get adequate fluoride from your community’s municipal water supply.)
  • Schedule a check-up with your dentist. Good preventive care at this age can help prevent more serious dental issues later. This visit is also a good time to discuss your child’s bite, pacifier use and other mouth-related issues.

Age 2 and older

With your help and encouragement, your child’s dental care habits should be well established by age two. Keep up the good work!
  • By age two, you may begin using a fluoride toothpaste for your child, but be sure to use only a small amount. A pea-sized dollop on a soft brush should do the trick.
  • Also by this age, your child’s teeth are likely growing closer together. Once two teeth touch, it’s time to start flossing your child’s teeth daily.
  • Limit juice and offer more water to drink. Juice can be high in sugar, which can lead to tooth decay. It’s important to maintain healthy baby teeth while a child’s mouth prepares for the permanent teeth that will come in later.

Dentures and More. To make them smile. AGAIN ! 

Are your parents struggling with their dentures?

Busy with our fast paced lives, we often fail to observe the struggles that our parents go through everyday.
Have you seen what they have been eating, or are they even able to eat properly?
About 85% of denture wearers are unhappy with their dentures and have difficulty chewing food. They struggle with something as basic as chewing food. While they should have been enjoying , they are just surviving on soup, dal, khichdi , daliya and other such soft foods.  Most of the people just accept it  because they believe that this is as good as it gets when it comes to dentures.
This leads to lack of nutrition to the body and thus deterioration of health.
Loose and painful dentures may cause denture sores which may lead to oral cancer.

How to floss

What is the Right Way to Floss?
Proper flossing removes plaque and food particles in places where a toothbrush cannot easily reach — under the gum-line and between your teeth. Because plaque build-up can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, daily flossing is highly recommended.
To receive maximum benefits from flossing, use the following proper technique:
      ·         Starting with about 18 inches of floss, wind most of the floss around each middle finger, leaving an inch or two of floss to work with
      ·         Holding the floss tautly between your thumbs and index fingers, slide it gently up-and-down between your teeth
      ·         Gently curve the floss around the base of each tooth, making sure you go beneath the gumline. Never snap or force the floss, as this may cut or bruise delicate gum tissue
      ·         Use clean sections of floss as you move from tooth to tooth
      ·         To remove the floss, use the same back-and-forth motion to bring the floss up and away from the teeth
What Type of Floss Should I Use?
There are two types of floss from which to choose:
      ·         Nylon (or multifilament) floss
      ·         PTFE (monofilament) floss

Nylon floss is available waxed and unwaxed, and in a variety of flavors. Because this type of floss is composed of many strands of nylon, it may sometimes tear or shred, especially between teeth with tight contact points. While more expensive, single filament (PTFE) floss slides easily between teeth, even those with tight spaces between teeth, and is virtually shred-resistant. When used properly, both types of floss are excellent at removing plaque and debris.

 Use about 18" of floss,         Gently follow the curves of      Be sure to clean
