Taking Care of Babys Teeth

How Can I take Care of my Babys teeth

Even after you learn how to brush your baby’s teeth, buy the right toothpaste and toothbrush, and take your child to the dentist 6 months after the first tooth emerges, there are other ways you can continue to take care of your baby’s teeth to ensure the best possible dental health.

Are you looking for new teeth-in-a-day to transform your loose teeth or old dentures into a confidence-boosting smile? If so, Dr. Adam Chapnick, a renowned cosmetic dentist in Toronto, is here for you. We will make sure your self-esteem remains high as you improve your social connections. The immediately functional Toronto cosmetic dentistry we provide will get you talking, smiling, and laughing without any worries.

Tips for Taking Care of your Baby’s Teeth include:

  • Only offer breast milk, formula or cooled boiled water as drinks for your baby.
  • After your baby is six months old start to offer drinks in a beaker. Try to discourage a bottle after he or she turns one year old and give milk or water to drink at night.
  • If you are using prepared baby foods check the labels to ensure they do not have added and unnecessary sugar. Lactose, fructose and glucose are all other names for sugar so be sure to check that there is none added to your baby’s food.

Sugar Free Variations

  • Avoid fizzy drinks, flavoured milk, fruit juices and squashes. All of these contain too much sugar for your baby’s teeth and can cause tooth decay at an early age.
  • Encourage your child to eat savoury foods over sweet ones such as vegetables, pasta and other foods that are part of a healthy and balanced diet. Avoid feeding your baby sugar whenever it is possible and don’t add it to recipes if it is not completely necessary.
  • If your baby needs to take any medications inquire about sugar free versions. Even cough syrup has sugar free variations you can purchase, to limit the amount of sugar in your child’s diet.


How to Teach Your Child to Live without Sugar?

These are some tips that will help you to raise your child with teeth that are not prone to developing cavities at an early age and to eat healthy and balanced foods. Feeding sugar is actually addictive and can lead your child to always want sugar in his or her diet which is just as bad for overall health as it is detrimental to oral hygiene.
