The best tips for clean baby teeth

As a parent, you naturally want your child's teeth to stay healthy and strong. You can do a lot in the first few years of life to prevent tooth decay and other dental problems. In this article we would like to give you our best tips for sparkling white baby teeth.

Why are baby teeth so important?

Many parents think that the milk teeth that children get in the first few years of life will eventually fall out anyway and are therefore not that important. However, this is a fallacy. The milk teeth serve as placeholders for the permanent teeth and thus also influence the tooth position in adulthood. They also play an important role in proper jaw development and chewing solid foods. It is therefore important to take good care of the milk teeth as well.

When should you start dental care?

Dental care can begin shortly after the first tooth has erupted. Here it is advisable to use a small children's toothbrush and to clean the teeth carefully twice a day. The use of toothpaste containing fluoride makes sense from the age of 2 years, as children at this age are already able to swallow enough of the paste.

How to teach children to brush their teeth?

In order to teach children how to brush their teeth, it is important to get them interested in it from the start. Here you can, for example, fall back on child-friendly toothpastes with a delicious taste. You can also turn brushing your teeth into a real cleaning party and sing along with the child or tell a story while they brush their teeth.

Should you already start visiting the dentist?

Yes, it is important to start visiting the dentist at an early age. Ideally, the first time should be at the age of one year or even earlier. This allows the dentist to identify potential problems early and treat them before they become more serious. In addition, the dentist can give the child and parents valuable tips on how to best care for the child's teeth in order to avoid tooth decay and other problems.

In addition to regular visits to the dentist, there are other important factors that contribute to healthy tooth development:

    1. Ensure a healthy diet: A balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals contributes to healthy teeth. Avoid sugary and acidic foods as they can damage teeth.

    2. Caring for baby teeth: Baby teeth are important for the proper development of the jaw and for the placeholder for the permanent teeth. It is important to take good care of these teeth to avoid tooth decay and other problems.

    3. Regular dental care: Daily dental care with a toothbrush and toothpaste is important to avoid plaque and tooth decay. Make sure your child brushes their teeth at least twice a day.

    4. Avoid sucking your thumb: Sucking your thumb can lead to misaligned teeth and should be avoided.

    5. Avoid sucking on the bottle: Sucking on the bottle, especially at night, can lead to what is known as bottle tooth decay. It is therefore important that your baby does not suck on the bottle for too long and has a clean drinking vessel at night, but also during the day. A hygienic drinking bottle made of robust glass is particularly suitable here. The surface texture of glass prevents bacteria from forming. In addition, you can clean it with high temperatures without developing toxins. Which is not the case with plastic!

    6. The use of child-protective lip balm: such a balm can prevent the child from biting his lip while sleeping, thereby allowing caries bacteria to enter the oral cavity.

FAQs:

    1. When should the first visit to the dentist take place? It is recommended that the first visit to the dentist takes place at the age of one year or earlier.

    2. What can I do to take care of my child's baby teeth? The milk teeth should be brushed regularly and attention should be paid to a healthy diet.

    3. How often should my child brush their teeth? It is recommended that children brush their teeth at least twice a day.

    4. What should be considered in terms of nutrition to keep the child's teeth healthy? Avoid sugary and sticky foods and eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals.

Be sure to study this topic if you want your baby to develop healthy teeth. Be sure to visit a dentist you trust if you find that something is wrong with your baby's teeth!
