About Babies Teething

Around two months of age babies start the teething stage. This is similar to mouths sometimes. Your baby will begin to drool at first and it is recommended that you place a bib on your baby to stop any irritation that could happen from the wetness.

When your baby is holding a rattle they would also be old enough to grip a teething ring. It is a good idea to have a few in the fridge for when your baby starts to fuss. This can be considered the same as mouths most of the time. It is not a very great idea to freeze the teething ring because it could cause the babies gums to be frost bit.

The first teeth will appear around the age of six to nine months. But if you or any of the siblings of your baby has had teeth come out at an earlier age your baby may also. No matter what, when that tooth come out it will need to be cleaned. It is easy to clean your baby’s teeth using a washcloth or a soft toothbrush.

It is time to start flossing your baby’s teeth when they have many teeth that have erupted out of the gum. When your child tries to floss it will teach them some fine motor skills. There have been studies done by the American Dental Association that have proven that brushing alone will not remove all the food stuck in teeth so flossing also needs to be done. Of course this has nothing to do with puppies usually. Without this flossing daily cavities and nasty breath is sure to come quicker.

Children should see their dentist two times in a year. The very first time should be when they are able to sit for ten minutes. But this should be done by the time that they turn three.
