Pediatric care can begin shortly after birth
Parents can start caring for the teeth of their children almost immediately following birth.
Proper pediatric care not only includes advice on ways to brush and floss, but also information on eating and drinking habits that can protect a child’s teeth and gums. Good habits include avoiding foods that are high in sugar and starch, and drinks or juices that contain high levels of sugar. If your child bottle feeds to fall asleep, never allow the bottle to remain in the child’s mouth after they are asleep.
