It’s National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM) and you know what that means, lots and lots of dental tips of course! The American Dental Association (ADA) touches on the importance of creating dental habits in your children at an early age. Children are at risk for tooth decay as soon as the baby teeth develop (as early as six months). So how do you prevent tooth decay? Begin by wiping your infants mouth the first few days after birth with a clean, moist gauze pad or washcloth. Once the teeth develop, begin brushing twice per day with a small amount of fluoride toothpaste.
