Ways To Take Care Of Your Teeth-- Infants and Children
It is very important for the mother to take the baby to the doctor (dentists) for check up, the moment she notice that the teeth has started growing at the tender age. The main assignment for mother is to maintain the dental health care of their children because they can do it on their own. The moment the child start growing the teeth, the mother should use soft foam with toothpaste to brush and clean the primary teeth. You need to continue with this exercise till the time the child is old enough to do it for himself.
Now that your child has now grown up, all you need to do is to teach him or her the proper ways or methods of brushing the teeth, and also to know that the fluoride toothpaste should not be swallowed. You need to do this by showing her example, make sure that you brush at the same time with your child, because at this tender age they learn through senses and for seeing you doing it they copy the way you do it.
In addition, you also need to teach your child way to flossing and there are different ways of doing that which you should let them know. Also let them know what, when and how to eat or drink so as to preserve their teeth from decaying or go bad. I think this will go a long way in taking care of the teeth of your children and infants.
