How do you prevent plaque and tooth decay on baby teeth.

Thursday, Jun. 3rd 2010 11:54 AM

My four month old does not yet have any teeth yet, but I would like to know some preventive measures in taking care of his teeth when they come in.   My brother two year old already has two filling and it seems he get plaque build up very easily.   I know they brush his teeth so what else needs to be done.   I do not want my son to have to have any cavities if I can help it.

    Once your child cuts his first tooth you should take him in to see the dentist. Also you want to clean his teeth after each feeding. A damp soft cloth is find at first then a finger brush with baby toothpaste without fluoride.

    Keep your son gums clean as well. Make sure you do not let your son have a baby bottle when he is not feeding. When you go to the dentist the dentist will also go over baby teeth care.
