When and How to clean baby’s teeth?

Baby’s gum needs to be cleaned (even if no teeth are present). Get a clean wet soft cloth (or gauze) and wrap it around your finger, seat the baby in a safe place, wipe the gum gently from back to front to remove milk. Once the first tooth starts to appear, a small soft toothbrush (with water) can be used.

The Function of a baby’s teeth (primary teeth)

1. Eating and chewing
2. Speech and language development
3. Esthetic and smiling
4. Maintain space for adult teeth

Child 1st dental visit

- It is recommended that a child sees a dentist when the first tooth starts to erupt or by the age of 6 months (whichever comes first).
- Establishing a positive relationship with the dentist and staff at an early age helps in creating a positive experience for the child, reduce the risk of having dental phobia and helps to educate the child about the value of oral health.
- Lower the risk of early childhood tooth decay or ECC. It is easy to get tooth decay in kids, and carious usually progress rapidly. Identifying the problem early on and establishing a proper brushing technique and monitoring the feeding pattern can eliminate the need for extensive dental work (which may need sedation).
