Even young babies can suffer from gum disease if proper care is not taken with dental hygiene. Poor oral hygiene is the chief cause of gum disease and following some simple guidelines will minimise the risk.
– Wipe the gums gently after every feeding
– Use a soft, clean, moist washcloth
– Use floss gently when the first teeth are touching
The first visit to a dentist should be scheduled when the first tooth starts to appear which is usually after about six months. Preventing possible gum disease “all comes back to proper oral hygiene” and you can find out more in the article at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/can-infants-suffer-from-gum-disease/.
