Good dental hygiene should start early. As soon as your baby starts teething, begin cleaning his teeth. Sometimes, parents are unaware that even babies are exposed to sugars. Did you know that natural sugars in breast milk can cause tooth decay? Hence, it is important to look after your baby's teeth as soon as they appear.
Your little one should start to teeth at around six months old and will continue to have a complete set of 20 milk teeth by two and a half years old. A healthy set of teeth is essential for baby's development. With good teeth, your child can enjoy a healthy diet, thereby allowing proper jaw growth and speech development.
