What’s Hiding Beneath Those Gums?

Don’t you love seeing a baby’s adorable, gummy smile? Believe it or not,
those tiny teeth are already there, and you need to be thinking about how to keep them healthy. The first step is to take care of your own teeth while you’re pregnant. Make sure you care for your oral health and see a dental provider for a check-up before you deliver. Once the baby is here, take care to wipe her gums after feedings, to not put her down to sleep with a bottle,
and begin brushing her teeth once one appears! For more information about oral health during pregnancy and for your infant, visit Healthychildren.org/tinyteeth.
