Importance of Oral Hygiene in Preventing Gum Disease for Infants

Gum disease can lead to teeth loss even in infant children. Symptoms of gum disease include redness of gums, swollen gum tissue, bleeding and sensitivity.

Key takeaways:

– A dentist can advise on the best practices for good oral hygiene care for your infant.

– If you don’t regularly clean your infant’s mouth, they are more likely to get gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease.

– Clean your infant’s mouth each time after feeding regardless of whether any teeth have come through yet.

“If you suspect your infant has gum disease, you should schedule an appointment with your child-friendly dentist as soon as possible to determine what the problem is and to seek treatment before your child’s mouth is further affected.”
