Infant Oral Care Before Teeth
Baby teeth develop while babies are still in the womb. Newborns have a full set of 20 baby teeth hidden in their gums. Hence, it is important to establish a good oral hygiene routine with your baby for their future dental health.
When should I start cleaning baby’s gums, tongue, and oral cavities?
Oral hygiene routine should start from birth onwards – the earlier you develop the routine, the smoother the transition to brushing will be when the teeth come in.
Clean your baby's gums, tongue, and oral cavities with Suzuran Baby Wet Cleaning Cotton after feeding to fight bacterial growth and promotes good oral health:
- If you are breastfeeding your baby, it is recommended to clean your baby’s gums, tongue, and oral cavities twice a day.
- If your baby is drinking formula milk, you should clean your baby’s gums, tongue, and oral cavities after every feed.
Remember to avoid cleaning your baby’s tongue immediately after feeding as this could cause your baby to spit up.
How to clean baby’s gums, tongue, and oral cavities?
Use Suzuran Baby Wet Cleaning Cotton to clean your baby’s gums, tongue, and oral cavities on daily basis.
- Wash your hands with soap and water before you clean your baby’s mouth. Dry your hands with a clean towel to prevent germs from spreading.
- Wrap a Wet Cleaning Cotton around your clean index finger, then gentle wipe your baby’s gums and tongue.
If you regularly clean your baby’s tongue but there are stuck white patches, this may mean that your baby has oral thrush. Take your baby to visit a doctor for advice and treatment if the white patches do not clear up in a few days. If you are breastfeeding your baby, you will need to be treated at the same time to avoid the infection being passed back and forward between you and your baby.
