Dental Health Care for Children

Dental or oral health care of children starts from the day when baby is born. Few simple steps which can contribute to healthy teeth are:

  • Always wipe off gums after feeding the baby.
  • Try to avoid bottle feeding as far s possible.
  • Never allow baby to sleep with milk bottle in his mouth.
  • Once your child starts going to play school, teach him how to brush. Brushing regularly with fluoride toothpaste avoid caries.
  • Teach him good oral habits. For example, rinsing after every meal and brushing twice a day.
  • Avoid thumb sucking habit. Teeth start protruding outside if this continues for a long time.
  • Avoid sweets and sugary snacks in between the meal, this can lead to cavities.
  • Young children tend to swallow toothpaste, so take proper care and do not allow them to swallow as toothpaste contains fluoride.
  • Regular dental checkups are useful to have a proper record of baby’s teeth.
  • During teething always take care of dental hygiene. Tethers or gum soothers used should be properly washed and clean.
