Dental Care for Babies
Brush as soon as the first tooth appears, x2 daily, using a smear of fluoride toothpaste the size of a grain of rice. Always wipe your baby's mouth instead of rinsing and avoid sharing utensils or dummies in your mouth before giving to your baby, as this can cause a transfer of bacteria.
Did You Know?
TOOTH DECAY can occur due to prolonged exposure of babies teeth to drinks that contain sugar e.g. a bottle at night.
BREAST FEEDING is much better as it helps to produce a better bite and reduces bottle caries but you can still get tooth decay.
