Dental Hygiene for Babies and Toddlers

Posted on 4/11/2022 by Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry
Dental Hygiene for Babies and ToddlersFollowing up with your baby's dental hygiene routine is essential as it allows them to get stronger and healthier teeth. Although it might be quite challenging to keep their mouth and teeth clean while they are still young, it is still important to enforce dental health to avoid cavities and tooth decay when they grow up. The following tips should help your practice dental hygiene for your baby effortlessly:

Give Your Baby Enough Water

Water is excellent for cleaning your baby's mouth and teeth. You should ensure they drink enough water after every meal to remove all the food particles in their mouth. It helps reduce the amount of acid present in their mouth, ensuring their first teeth remain healthy.

Avoid Sugary Drinks and Foods

When your baby is still young, sugary foods and drinks like juices and sodas are unnecessary. You can give them fruits instead of sweets. Sugary foods increase acidity and can easily erode the teeth of your baby. Also, breastfeed your baby to provide all the nourishing nutrients they need for their teeth.

Prepare Healthy Meals and Snacks for Your Baby

Giving your child healthy meals is another way to ensure their dental hygiene is well taken care of. Healthy meals with all the necessary nutrients ensure your baby's teeth are strong and free from any harmful bacteria that can cause gum infections.

Start Cleaning Your Baby's Teeth When They Appear

Cleaning your baby's teeth every day is essential in ensuring their dental health is well maintained. You should begin by using a dump, soft close to clean their teeth, and when they are around two years old, you can introduce a toothbrush and toothpaste.
