Infant Oral Care in Palos Heights, IL

Caring for your infant's oral health can be challenging for new parents. I don’t have any better way to get your baby to cooperate than you do.  Here’s my advice: be consistent, don’t get frustrated, do your best.  If you’re getting the fluoride toothpaste in her mouth, you’re doing some good.  Some babies are more difficult with brushing than others, it’s just part of who we are.  If you’re really concerned, use your energy and frustration to motivate yourself to keep them away from juice and sweets.  That will more than make up for any deficiencies with tooth brushing.
