Your kids go through a lot of changes in the early years, which include dental health. Below are two tips to help parents during the earliest years.
- Baby bottle tooth decay is a problem for the little ones when drinks like juice are given at bedtime. It’s best to not have your baby use a bottle while sleeping.
- Many babies and toddlers suck on their thumb as a reflex, but it’s not something you want them to do after age 4. Once their permanent teeth have come in, thumb sucking can cause them to become crooked.
It’s never too early to start good dental habits.
