Tips to Keep your Babies Teeth Healthy

June 1st, 2013

As a Kelowna Dental Centre that oversees the dental care of all ages, we wanted to provide parents with some quick tips on how to best care for your baby’s teeth and gums.

  • Prior to the eruption of teeth, clean the baby’s mouth and gums with a soft cloth/toothbrush at bath time.
  • Your child’s teeth should be cleaned twice a day with a toothbrush specially designed for small children.
  • Take the baby to see a dentist by the age of 1 year. It is important to set up a dental home to ensure that the child’s oral health care is delivered in an environment where your family is comfortable and well taken care of.
  •  Never immerse a pacifier in anything sweet; it can result in serious tooth decay.
  •  When a child is given a bottle containing sugary liquids such as milk formula & fruit juice, the teeth can be exposed to bacterial acid for a prolonged time. This can cause cavities in babies.  It is important to try to wean the infant from the bottle by the age of one.
  • When child’s tooth appears and other foods/beverages have been introduced into the diet, the baby is prone to risk of having severe tooth decay. Make sure to clean the baby’s mouth with a wet washcloth after breast feeding during the nighttime.

We hope that these simple steps will help you keep your baby’s teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime.
