Why take care of baby teeth if they are going to fall out?

Pediatric Dentistry

The primary teeth appear at approximately 8 months, and finish erupting at 30 months. It is important that during this period a custom of hygiene is created in the child.

Keeping the primary teeth healthy ensures good chewing and occlusion, helps with good pronunciation, and makes it easier to learn new words.


For all this, it is important to keep primary teeth healthy, through good oral hygiene, a correct diet low in sugar and carbohydrates, and controlling night breast milk.

ORAL HYGIENE : How to care for your baby's gums

Oral Hygiene

There is no greater joy than to see our healthy babies smiling at life. And for that we must create the habit of good oral hygiene even before their first teeth appear.


Having no teeth is not an excuse for not cleaning your gums with gauze or a soft, damp cloth. You don't need to use any toothpaste yet. Simply wrap the cloth or gauze around your index finger and rub it gently over his gums. Getting your baby used to having his mouth cleaned as part of his daily routine should make it easier to transition into toothbrushing later on, too.
