Infant Oral Care
Most of the babies do not get their first teeth any time before 6 months. But the professional dentists claim that the infant oral care needs arise even before that. The dentists recommend the parents to bring their infants for a dental checkup any time before their first birthday to ensure that their oral conditions do not have any dental problems. Some of the dental conditions for which you need to be aware of are pacifiers, teething and baby bottle tooth decay.
The infants start to grow their teeth from the gums since they are of 3 months. They are not clearly visible by then but it is present there. By the age of 3 most of the children get their complete set of 20 teeth. The dentists also recommend the parents to keep the babies away from sugar or starch foods as the debris that stays the entire night can result in tooth decay or cavity problems.
While teething of infants, make sure you gently rub the baby’s gums to apply pressure and ease their discomfort. When they get their first teeth, make sure to clean their mouth daily for healthy oral habits. Consult your dentists to know more about handling tooth decay and pacifier problems.
