Baby Oral Health

-Did you know that caring for your child’s teeth begins when you are pregnant? Eating healthy while expecting is very important.

– Just as important is to make sure that your own gums and teeth are healthy

-Start brushing as soon as the first tooth appears

-Your child’s first visit at the dentist’s should be scheduled at age one or 6 months after the first tooth appears in her mouth

-Check for tight contacts between teeth and start flossing between teeth that are snug together
