Children Under Two Years Old

It is important to know that our dentition is formed completely at birth. The teeth are simply hidden under the gums, start to grow out at around six months and end their eruption at about three years of age. Of course, healthy dentition starts with healthy gums. This is why parents must follow certain oral and dental hygiene rules with their child.

From birth to six months, it is sufficient to rub your baby’s gums gently with a moist towel after each feeding. This will remove the sticky film (plaque), which damages the teeth. When the teeth start to grow out, you only have to clean them with a soft toothbrush. The amount of toothpaste must be limited to the size of a pea and you must ensure that your child expels everything after brushing.

The first visit to the dental clinic ideally should take place when the child is around 1 year of age. Subsequent consultations must be held every 6 months.
