Even if the baby is small, oral care can not be forgotten
Having a mouthful of white and beautiful teeth is so important to a person's health and image quality. Babies love to laugh. Of course, we hope that they have white teeth when they laugh, instead of black plaque that affects their appearance. Some parents may say that my baby is still young, he hasn't even grown teeth or a few teeth, so there is no need to worry about this problem.
In fact, no matter how old the baby is, the problem of dental care should be paid attention to. Whether it is a baby who only drinks milk or has taken supplementary food, it will be more or less exposed to milk scale and food residues. Even if the baby's deciduous teeth have not yet erupted, if the gums are often invaded by milk scale or food residue and cannot be cleaned, it will have a certain adverse effect on the eruption of the deciduous teeth.
Therefore, only by taking good care of your baby's teeth from an early age can you keep "plaque" out of the door. So, how do you brush your baby's teeth? The tips here need to be learned.
●For babies whose deciduous teeth have not erupted
Some parents may wonder, do I have to brush their teeth if the baby has no teeth? The answer is yes.
For babies whose deciduous teeth have not yet erupted, we recommend that moms and dads let the baby drink a few mouthfuls of warm water to wash the mouth every time after the baby drinks milk or eats a muddy food Clean the residue.
Then mom and dad wash their hands again, wrap the index finger with a sterilized cotton gauze specially designed for infants and young children, dipped in warm water to moisten the gauze, and gently and gently wipe the baby's gums. Doing so will not only help your baby clean the mouth, but proper gum massage can also promote the eruption of baby's deciduous teeth and relieve gum discomfort caused by the eruption of deciduous teeth.
●For babies who have already developed deciduous teeth
It is recommended to use a soft toothbrush for infants and young children. The size of the soft bristled baby toothbrush for toddlers is suitable for the size of the baby’s mouth. The soft bristles can wash the teeth and gums to avoid damage caused by improper strength. In addition, using swallowable toothpaste containing xylitol to brush your baby's teeth can remove and prevent the formation of dental plaque on the surface of the teeth, and you don't have to worry about the baby swallowing the toothpaste because it won't spit it out.
When you first brush your baby's teeth, your baby may resist. So moms and dads shouldn't be rushed, they have to patiently guide the baby. For babies who do not have deciduous teeth, if they are particularly resistant to brushing their teeth, mom and dad can temporarily let the baby drink a few mouthfuls of warm water to rinse the mouth after each meal. When the baby is less resistant, clean the gums with gauze.
In addition, mom and dad can also use some picture books to promote the baby's tooth brushing, as well as by precepts and deeds, and show the baby more about brushing. The baby's imitating ability is relatively strong, and it will become natural over time.
Let the baby develop a good habit of brushing teeth since childhood, and have a mouthful of white and beautiful teeth, not only can make the baby have a good appetite, but also increase the baby's image and temperament. Therefore, in order not to find the baby for "dental plaque" and for the baby's tooth protection action, moms and dads must cheer!
