Tips for baby teeth
Baby teeth, otherwise known as ‘milk teeth’ need to be specially cared for. Only ever use soft bristled brushes on delicate baby teeth and brush in gentle circular motions. Children with baby teeth should also avoid eating overly sticky foods, which can pull baby teeth out prematurely and damage gums. Baby teeth generally all fall out by age 16, however if your child hasn’t lost their baby teeth by the time they’re 18, you should consult your dentist. They may have to be removed manually due to an issue with the underlying adult teeth.
