To keep the cavities away, it is essential that periodic check-up of teeth must be carried out for the baby. Parents must make an appointment with the dentist as soon as the baby first gets its teeth in his or her mouth. It is known that babies get their teeth when they are between 6 to 10 months.

Cleaning mouth daily:
It is essential to wipe the gums and tongue of the baby every time after feeding. This must be done even when the babys mouth does not have any teeth also.

Care to be taken after giving sweet medicines:
