Dental Hygiene for Babies

Before they even enter the world a baby will have begun to form teeth. Very few new borns have visible teeth, but they are still there, hidden by gum. Most often the first sign of exposed teeth comes 6-9 months into life, though this can vary between babies.

A one year old child is likely to have 8 little chompers – some will have more, some less (hey, it is only an average,it does not mean anything!)

Although these are milk teeth (or deciduous teeth) – which means that at some point they will be substituted by adult teeth, this does not mean that these teeth should not be well cared for. In fact it is very important to look after these teeth.

Dental Care for Young Children

Did you know that teeth are being formed in the mouth of a baby whilst he or she is still in the womb? They are usually still concealed beneath the gums, but many babies begin to have visible teeth anywhere between the six month and nine month mark. There is no hard and fast rule for the time of the first teeth.

On average a baby will be boasting about eight teeth by the time they celebrate their first birthday. Since this is just an average, do not worry if your baby has less or more – it is not important.

Regardless of the number of these little white teeth and when they arrive, what does matter is to start a dental hygiene program at the sight of them. They are milk teeth, of course, but just because they will naturally give way to adult teeth does not mean we should neglect them.

Teeth caring between dentist visits

Dental care is a highly personalized health service that varies from patient to patient. As a result it is difficult to give hard-and-fast rules about what constitutes a “good quality” dentist. For optimum dental care it is important to find a family dentist who takes a sincere interest in the patient’s general health and well being.

In order to locate qualified dentists in your area the first thing you should do is to call or write to your local dental society seeking a list of dentists in your area. You can also speak to your family doctor or local pharmacist or ask members of your extended family, friends, neighbors or co-workers for their recommendation. Other possibilities are to speak to the dental school in your area or call your local hospital that has an accredited and attached dental service.
