Parenthood is an exciting time filled with plenty of firsts and a hefty dose of exhaustion. You have baby’s first smile, baby’s first steps and even baby’s first words. It’s the small moments that make the sleepless nights and the unknown so worth it.
And then a little thing called teething kicks in, which can only mean one thing: the pearly whites are well on their way.
What does this mean for you? How do you take care of baby teeth? Or even just a baby tooth? And does it all matter if the teeth eventually fall out anyway?
Don’t fret. We know you’re plenty busy with a baby in tow, so we’re here to give you the rundown on caring for your baby’s first teeth and all the questions that come with it.
Learning the ropes of parenthood is no easy task. It’s a trek into a world of firsts and a crash course in patience — and you’re bound to have a few questions along the way – new parent or not. Since parenting is new to everyone at some point, we fully expect there to be times when you don’t have all the answers.
To help you start your child’s dental care on the right foot, we’re answering some of the common dental health questions every parent has about taking their child to the dentist.
Even though we all know the importance of dental hygiene, we don’t always understand the science behind it. And that’s especially true when it comes to caring for our children’s teeth. We’ve all heard cavities are dangerous and that strict cleaning regimens are vital to having a healthy smile, but why do they actually matter? And what does a healthy prevention even look like?
We’re here to answer all of these questions and more. Live chat us now!
There’s a thin line between childhood quirk and unhealthy habit. Conditions such as baby bottle tooth decay and complications from thumb sucking can cause oral health problems for your children. However, once you identify an unhealthy habit, it’s a challenge knowing how to safely correct it.
It’s important to take a firm stance against these antics. Your child’s smile may depend on it. And while it might feel “too tough” at times, it’ll go a long way in caring for your child’s teeth.
