Babies and Oral Hygiene
- Posted on: Sep 20 2012
Even in infancy, your child needs to have their teeth and gums cared for. For babies, oral hygiene may initially consist of simply wiping your child’s gums with a warm, soft washcloth after feeding. As teeth begin to develop, wiping the gums after feeding will help keep teeth clean as well, and provide some relief from the discomfort that can accompany erupting teeth.
When your baby has one or more erupted teeth, it is a good idea to begin seeing a family dentist. Our experienced Philadelphia family dentist Dr. Lindsey Marshall recommends early dental visits to ensure proper tooth development and oral health, but also to help your child feel comfortable at the dentist’s office.
Dr. Marshall offers treatments specific for each stage of early tooth development. By giving your child a positive experience, we can work towards building a strong foundation for good dental hygiene in the future.
If you are looking for a compassionate and experienced family dentist in the Philadelphia, Ardmore, or Main Line areas of Pennsylvania, please contact Lindsey Marshall, DMD today to schedule an initial consultation.
