Healthy Baby Teeth
Healthy Baby Teeth
Most babies will develop teeth between 6 and 12 months. Some babies may not have any teeth by their first birthday.Typically, the first teeth to come in are almost always the lower front teeth (the lower central incisors), and most children will usually have all of their baby teeth by age 3.
Baby‘s teeth do matter a lot as healthy child’s teeth will pave a way for healthy adult teeth. Moreover, These teeth are very important for eating, talking and smiling. They also keep spaces for the adult teeth.
When the teeth erupt in mouth, keep them clean by twice a day brushing with a smear layer of toothpaste on the baby brush.
Sugar and sugary foods can be a tooth’s worst enemy. For good dental health cut down on how often a baby eats sugary foods and drink. Give them as part of a meal instead of between meals if you can. Having sugary foods and drinks too often puts the teeth at risk of tooth decay. This is especially important once the baby teeth start to appear (around 6 months).
Parents by feeding them only sweet put them in the habit of eating only sweet things. Do not buy commercially available juices for the child. Feed them as much normal food as adults eat.
It is important never to give sweet drinks in the baby bottle. This can be harmful once a baby’s teeth start appearing. Try not to let the baby develop the habit of sleeping with a bottle at night or at nap time. Infants and toddlers should not be put to bed with a feeding bottle or dinky feeder. Baby’s bottle should be used for feeding – not as a pacifier.
