Baby Teeth

When your baby is born, he/she already has their primary or baby teeth growing in the jaw. By age three, all twenty should have erupted. Teething can cause many symptoms such as fever, vomiting, sore gums, diarrhea, loss of appetite, wrestles sleep and general malaise.

Primary teeth are very important to your child’s health and development. They help him or her chew, speak and smile. They also hold space in the jaws for permanent teeth that are growing under the gums.

As soon as they are visible, you should begin to care for your child’s teeth by cleaning them with a soft cloth or very soft and small child’s brush. No toothpaste is recommended at this stage.
