The first teething will allow our little one to perform important functions such as chewing solid food. The mouth and nose area is also involved in breathing, swallowing and speech. That is why it is essential to control and maintain a healthy mouth from the earliest stages.
At this age the important thing is start laying the groundwork for good oral health. Our objectives will be to take care of the diet, avoiding sugars and cleaning these first teeth. In the early stages, with the help of mum and towards the two years introducing the brush with a child's toothpaste (fluoride based).
This is a good time for a first oral check-up with the paediatric dentist (children's dentist). It will help us to avoid caries and will give us a first orientation about possible alterations in the oral formation.
