The facts on deciduous teeth
Deciduous (baby) teeth usually first erupt between the ages of 1-3, and it is important to book in to see Dr. Curtis Couch in Thousand Oaks when this does happen. This allows him to oversee their tooth development and keep an eye on their jaw and tooth alignment to predict or diagnose any issues or problems.
How to keep your child’s teeth clean
If you are unsure how to keep your child’s new teeth clean, we at Curtis Couch D.D.S have the answers!
For infants, it is best to clean their teeth with a damp cloth to remove any grime. Make sure to use a small amount of toothpaste to ensure the tooth is clean. This should be done twice a day to help you and the child get into a healthy teeth cleaning routine. Cleaning your child’s teeth from an early age will get them used to the process and cause less stress in later years.
Children usually start brushing their own teeth around the age of seven, after which it is just making sure that they haven’t been lazy or teaching them how to brush their teeth properly. Be sure to take your child to visit Dr. Curtis Couch every six months to ensure a full mouth clean and prevention of tooth decay.
