Oral Health Care for Moms and their Babies

Oral Health Care during Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a unique time in a woman's life and is characterized by complex physiological changes. The perinatal period is defined as the period around the time of birth, beginning with the completion of the 20-28th week of gestation and ending 1-4 weeks after birth.

Dental Care for Your Baby

Your child should visit a pediatric dentist when the first tooth comes in, usually between 6 and 12 months of age. This visit will establish a dental home for your child.

How to Cope When Teething Starts

The average baby will have the arrival of his or her first tooth around six months of age. But just as your baby will hit other milestones at his or her own pace, so too will teeth come on their own timeline.
