Are you curious about when dental care for children should start? If so, then this video will be a great resource for you. This video goes over how to care for your child’s teeth. Now, let’s get started.
Having a child comes with a lot of responsibility such as keeping up with their dental health. A child’s baby teeth are just as important as their adult teeth.
Did you know the first time you should take your child for their first dental visit is after their first birthday? Yes, it’s that soon! Here are ways you can ensure your child has the proper care at home.
First things first, go ahead and schedule an appointment with a pediatric dentist when your child turns one. Another tip to follow is to start using a soft-bristled infant toothbrush with a bit of fluoride toothpaste and brush their teeth twice a day gently. To make sure your child’s teeth form properly try not to put them to bed with a bottle. Going to bed with milk, juice, or even flavored water can even pull around the teeth.
Besides scheduling an appointment with a pediatric dentist, at-home dental care for children is extremely important.
