National Children’s Dental Health Month is quickly coming to a close. What have you done to care for your child’s teeth? It’s not too late to learn new ways to keep your child’s smile beautiful and healthy from a very young age. At Pediatric Dentistry of Garden City and Glen Cove, we encourage parents and kids to keep their smiles healthy all year long.
Here are some tips on how to care for tiny teeth:
- Keep Gums Clean - Wipe gums after meals to get your child used to an oral care routine.
- Brush Baby Teeth - Start brushing as soon as the first tooth appears. Use a baby sized brush and a smear of toothpaste to clean the tooth.
- Avoid Baby Bottle Decay - When babies fall asleep with their bottle, the sugary drink eats away at the tooth enamel. Just like in adults, this can result in cavities. Keep your baby’s mouth clean by wiping the gums and brushing new baby teeth after each feeding.
- Visit our Office - Schedule your child’s first dental visit during the first six months after the first tooth erupts.
