When caring for your child’s dental health, don’t underestimate the importance of teething and dental health in your babies and toddlers. In fact, caring for baby teeth is just as important as caring for adult teeth. Baby teeth prepare the way for adult teeth to erupt through the gums. If they decay or are removed too early, orthodontic treatment is necessary to make space for the adult teeth to come through.
Be sure to plan for dental cleaning and exams too. The first dental exam should be scheduled by the child’s first birthday. Dental exams and cleanings are recommended every six months. When caring for your young child’s dental health, some children may require more frequent visits to maintain oral health.
At Tasty Clean we believe that oral hygiene is important for your child’s overall health as well.
Bacteria caused from germs and lack of care can create gum disease and health problems later in life. For babies and toddlers, Tasty Clean is a safe and convenient way to keep those things they put in their mouth clean. For the older kids, it is a delicious alternative to the chemically tasting retainer, and occlusal guard cleaners that can collect bacteria. For all ages, our all natural formula will safely remove bacteria from dentures, dental appliances, sports and musical equipment without the stress of corrosive chemicals and excessive scrubbing.
Diet is also an important part of maintaining dental health in babies and toddlers.
Parents should provide nutritious snacks and save sugary treats for special occasions. When caring for your young child’s dental health, it’s important to avoid putting a child to bed with a bottle of juice, milk or formula, which can cause cavities.
Children may need orthodontic care to prevent or correct problems involving the teeth, jaws or bite. If braces are used, parents should follow recommendations to help eliminate or reduce dental health problems, and ALWAYS keep a bottle of Tasty Clean handy!
