The majority of babies sprout their first tooth at about 6 months old. Children usually have 20 baby teeth. Some children will have individual teeth erupted in reverse order, but ultimately it does not affect the arrangement of the teeth. So, parents do not have to worry too much about it.
If you do not pay enough attention to your baby’s teeth, problems like tooth decay, toothache, gingivitis, tone, gastrointestinal would happen sooner or later. It can even affect your baby’s face shape and form. It may seem like a long way from now, but it’s best to keep brushing your child’s teeth until they learn to brush it properly themselves.
Try to brush your baby’s teeth twice a day: Once in the morning, then again before bed. Brush in small and gentle, circular motion. Concentrating on the area between the teeth and gums and brush gently because your baby’s gum is tender. When you are done, do not rinse the baby’s mouth with too much water.
The main cause of tooth decay is not how sweet or how much sugar is in your baby’s diet, but how often it is consumed throughout the day. Try to limit sugary foods, including fruits, to mealtimes only and no more than 4 times a day.
