Did You Brush Your Baby's Gums?

Did You Brush Your Baby's Gums?

Dental care begins well before baby's chompers make their debut. Pediatric dentists recommend that parents get in the habit of cleaning their little one's toothless grins once a day. One simple swipe of baby's gums with a wet washcloth is all it takes to get pre-teethers ready for good dental hygiene, but many parents skip it until the pearly whites are visible.

Yeah, we did. My side of the family has a dental calcium deficiency, so its really really important for us to start habits early. You would be surprised how often people don't brush at all, even after they get teeth.
