Baby Teeth and Oral Care: Dental Care Tips from your Catonsville Dentists

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

As a new parent, you probably have a ton of questions about your child’s health. But what many parents fail to realize is that good oral health starts at the sign of that first baby tooth. Baby teeth may be small and temporary, but they are still important. Without a healthy set of baby teeth, your child could struggle to chew effectively or even speak clearly.

Tips for Caring for Baby Teeth

  1. It starts with the Gums: Gum care can begin before baby teeth ever appear. This will help protect future baby teeth from bacteria that could be clinging to your baby’s gums. So, using a soft, moist washcloth, gently wipe your child’s gums twice a day (after feeding and before bedtime).
  2. Brushing Baby Teeth: You should begin brushing your child’s teeth as soon as the first baby tooth erupts through the gums. At first, you can just use a wet toothbrush. Then, around age one, you can begin using a slight bit of non-flouridated toothpaste. Wait to introduce fluoride toothpaste until age two.
  3. Flossing Baby Teeth: You should begin flossing your child’s teeth as soon as two baby teeth touch.
  4. Regular Dentist Visits: We recommend that infants see a dentist by the age of 1 or within 6 months after their first tooth comes in.
