What’s the best way to clean my baby’s teeth?
It’s strongly recommended that you purchase a toothbrush specifically designed for babies. These come with extra soft bristles and miniature heads. Brush your baby’s erupted teeth once a day, preferably before they go to sleep for the night. If you’d prefer to not use a toothbrush, you can rub their teeth with a washcloth.
How old should my child be when they visit the dentist for the first time?
Our doctors recommend that a first appointment should be scheduled when one of two criteria is met: 1) Your child’s first tooth erupts or 2) Your child has reached their first birthday. Even if your child’s teeth aren’t visible, coming in around the age of one is important for our team to observe their oral development. During their first appointments, we will provide you with helpful tips on how to take care of their oral health.
How can I help my child avoid dental decay and other common oral health issues?
Our team is happy to provide you with the information you need! The first step is to bring your son or daughter in for an appointment. The most important tips to remember are to teach them the importance of practicing good oral hygiene habits, as well as eating a balanced diet that is high in calcium and low on damaging sweets.
Why does my child need dental care starting one year old or sooner?
Even though your child’s first set of teeth (the primary, or “baby” teeth) will fall out and be replaced by permanent versions, this doesn’t mean that they don’t require quality care and professional attention. Primary teeth play an essential role in guiding your child’s oral development and dental function. In fact, they can affect your child’s speech development! They also guide the developing adult teeth into their ideal positions.
How often should my child visit the dentist?
Just like adult patients, children should be visiting Texas Tiny Teeth every six months on average. This will allow our team to assess their dental growth and ensure that there are no cavities, injuries, or other concerns that require treatment. In certain cases, we may recommend more frequent appointments so that we can assist your child’s growing smile as effectively as possible.
