5 tips for toddlers teeth

Looking after your little ones teeth is very important.

    1. To soothe the irritation of teething, give your baby a teething ring to chew on.
    2. If your baby needs a drink between feeds, use cooled boiled water.
    3. After feeding, wipe your baby’s teeth with a moist cloth.
    4. Introduce your infant to tooth brushing as soon as teeth appear. As infants can’t control swallowing don’t use toothpaste.
    5. At about 18months take your child to the family dentist for a check-up to become accustomed to regular dental visits.
  • Pregnant women who experience morning sickness with vomiting are at high risk of tooth erosion. If this is to happen immediately rinse with water and do not brush for at least 1 hour.
