Pennsylvania baby teeth oral health care

Monday, Jan. 3rd 2011 9:44 AM

My son has skinky baby breath.  It not terrible but I just wondering why.  I take really good care of  the few teeth he as since he is newly teething still.  Is there something more I should be doing besides useing a dental wipe after each feeding.  Or is that just part of teething?

    You may want to use a rubber finger brush to clean your son new baby teeth and gums. Sometimes I found that the wipes did not work all that well.

    His bad breath may be from the smell of milk (if you are nursing) or the formula that you are feeding him. You can also use baby toothpaste that does not have flouride. Use just a smig but that my help his breath.

    If after trying that he still has stinky breath you may talk to his doctor.

    I did not really like the dental wipes for everyday dental cleaning of infant teeth. That are great to use if you are out of the house.

    But is you are home and cleaning his teeth after a feeding use either a baby toothbrush or a rubber finger brush.

    I also heard that dentist now advise for you to take your child to their first dental appontment when they cut their first tooth. This way they are staying on top of their oral healthcare before any dental issue being to start. You may want to do that too. Better safe then sorry latter on.
