As a parent, you not only nurture and love your child, you also ensure their physical health, in which oral health plays a big role. Here’s a quick guide to keeping your child’s smile its brightest and most healthy.

Daily Routine For Babies

  • Even before the teeth appear, pour warm water on a soft piece of gauze or a “baby washcloth” (thinner and soften).
  • Wipe their gums gently to remove bacteria on their gums (it is there the moment they drink milk).
  • Get your child used to having something in their mouth touching their gums.

When The First Tooth Appears

  • Using a soft-bristled toothbrush, clean the tooth – and subsequent teeth as they emerge.
  • Use a very, very small amount of toothpaste (like a grain of rice) as wee ones can’t spit it out. As every child is different, we’ll guide you in what type to use.
