Baby's First Tooth Care
Caring for your baby's first tooth is an important part of their overall health. Start brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Floss once a day and check for signs of tooth decay or cavities. Monitor their diet for sugary foods and drinks, and avoid putting them to bed with a bottle. Give them a damp cloth to wipe their gums after meals and avoid sugary snacks or drinks. Schedule regular dental check-ups and talk to your dentist about fluoride supplements. With these steps, your baby's first tooth will stay healthy and strong.
