Baby Toothbrush and Kids Toothbrush from Brush-Baby
Did you know that baby teeth develop even before babies are born? Baby teeth begin to develop at about 6 weeks after conception. By the time a baby is born all 20 baby teeth are present in the jawbone but still hidden under the gums.
Cleaning your baby's gums helps remove food and milk deposits and reduces the build-up of bacteria, including those that cause tooth decay. This helps create a healthier environment for new baby teeth. Keeping gums clean can also help avoid gum inflamation and pain (teething pain) caused by infection of teething gums.
Introducing a daily dental care routine early, starting with gum care, will help get your baby used to the idea having its ‘teeth’ cleaned from a very early age, making life easier later on!
Research has also shown that wiping a baby's gums and new teeth daily with a xylitol wipe gives great protection against tooth decay in the early years.
