Oral care is not just about having a good smile but also about maintaining consistent oral hygiene for the good health of teeth and gums. Parents should start giving attention to the baby’s oral care and prevention of cavities at an early stage. Babies with good oral hygiene stay healthier and happier during their teething period.
Even Pediatricians also recommend starting a proper oral hygiene routine early in life and cleaning the baby’s gums after each feed to remove any bacteria. The cavities in primary teeth further increase the risk of developing caries in permanent teeth. Therefore, the baby’s mouth and teeth must be protected with a controlled diet, good quality toothpaste & gum gel, and frequent use of the toothbrush. Keeping this in mind, the leading baby care brand, Chicco has introduced its oral care products suitable for babies during the growth of their milk teeth.
Before Teething (Age 4 months+)
- Chicco Gum Gel 2in1: Gum Gel is ideal for soothing minor discomfort connected with the eruption of a baby’s first teeth. It comes with Xylitol, well-known for its antibacterial action, and has a sanitising action on the oral mucosa. Additionally, it provides relief to irritated gums with Chamomile and the cooling effect of its formulation. The flavourless gel is safe if the baby occasionally swallows it.
- Finger Toothbrush: The finger toothbrush is made of sterilise-able silicone with very soft bristles for the correct application of Chicco gum gel. The soft bristles allow parents to safely massage reddened gums and the baby’s teeth.
