While teaching your young children to learn to brush can be tough, it’s downright impossible, hazardous and not advised for children aged 3 and under. For babies and newborns, you can use dental tissues, also defined as tooth wipes. Tooth tissues should be used after children eat or drink sugary foods like juices or fruit, and the tissue should be trashed after a lone use.

Baby bottle tooth decay is caused when children receive an overload of sugary chemicals that are not brushed or washed away with good oral hygiene habits. When foods are allowed to rest on the pearly whites for too long, they make bacterial acids which consume away at the chompers and harm oral health in a variety of different ways. Sugary foods given to children frequently include soda and juices in bottles and sugar on a dipped pacifier; do not give these things to your newborns.
