A baby’s dental care is so important. We joke that you only have to brush the teeth you want to keep. However, it is true. When the bacterial load in children is lower at a young age they tend to build stronger antibodies to various oral bacteria as they grow older. We tell parents that they should start cleaning and washing the mouth and teeth at an early age. To clean the mouth brush the teeth and the tongue! The tongue can harbor a lot of bacteria and cause a higher bacterial load especially for babies who might have “white tongue” from all the milk that they drink.
