Tooth care

My baby has just produced her first tooth and I am as proud as punch! Should I be dashing off to take her for a dental checkup?

The first tooth is a wonderful milestone! However it is not a sign that a visit to the dentist is required. Usually the first dental visit should be scheduled for around your baby’s second birthday.

Up to now a daily gentle rub of the gums with a soft cloth was all that was required for dental hygiene. Now that a tooth has appeared it would be a good idea to get a very soft little toothbrush and give the tooth (as well as subsequent teeth!) a brush after each meal. +27 (0)81 885 4683
