Cavities can be passed down from parent to child. Poor dental health in children can cause cognitive, appetite and speech problems. Here’s how to avoid passing down cavities to your baby.
-Start visiting the dentist early in the pregnancy, to have your teeth checked and cleaned.
– Wipe your baby’s mouth with a soft cloth and warm water to prepare for healthy milk teeth.
– Visit the dentist regularly together with your baby, for assessment and cleaning.
Teach your children how to clean their teeth and discourage chewing of toys.
