Be a Superhero by Protecting Your Baby’s Smile

Children's Dental Health Month

As part of Children’s Dental Health Month, dentists across the nation are offering services to kids in desperate need of essential routine dental care. The events are part of the ADA’s Give Kids a Smile Program, and 2014 promises to be a great year. “Join the Super Smile Team” is this year’s slogan, and promotional posters feature a superhero teen duo fighting for super smiles and great oral health. To ensure healthy smiles, good dental care habits should start at birth. Here are some great tips for taking care of your baby’s newly formed teeth. Super powers aren’t required.

Clean your baby’s gums. After feeding, gently clean your baby’s gums with a moist washcloth. When teeth emerge, brush them with a soft-bristled child’s toothbrush and plain water. Don’t use fluoride toothpaste until your child is at least two years old.

Take proper care of baby teeth. Although baby teeth eventually fall out, it’s important to keep them healthy. They’re functional, and they’re also placeholders for your child’s permanent teeth.

Fill your baby’s bottles with formula, milk, or water only. Don’t put your baby to bed with a bottle.

Make sure your baby’s pacifier is clean. Don’t put it in your own mouth first or dip it in a sweet liquid.

Reduce your baby’s exposure to bacteria. This is essential for preventing tooth decay. Don’t exchange saliva with your baby by chewing food to soften it or sharing eating utensils.

Feed your child a healthy diet. Include vegetables, fruits, and whole grains and limit sweet and starchy foods.

Brush your child’s teeth until they can do it alone. Until your child becomes more independent, supervise their brushing. Learning good dental care habits is critical for maintaining healthy teeth and gums for life.
