Do you know just how important dental care is; even right after your child is born!?
Baby teeth develop during the second trimester of pregnancy, and about 20 teeth are present in the jaw at birth. For cavity prevention before teeth appear, it is helpful to use a damp washcloth to wipe a baby’s gums after breast feeding or bottle feeding. Regular wiping of the gums can help prevent the buildup of bacteria, and it can help get your baby accustomed to regular oral care. Doing this, can help them see from such a young age, just how important it is to care for our teeth.
