To prevent tooth decay be sure you-
1. Start brushing your baby’s teeth as soon as they erupt.
2. Limit sugar-containing drinks between meals. Drink water instead.
3. Avoid sticky foods like raisins, fruit leather, and hard candies. Provide the child with healthy alternatives such as fruits and vegetables cut into small pieces (to avoid
choking) or whole grain snacks.
4. Make an appointment with your Pediatric Dentist when the teeth erupt or sooner if you have concerns. It is never too early to prevent dental disease.
