Here are few basic measures to be taken by every parent to keep their kids teeth healthy & strong.

-   A baby generally of age 0 - 6 months has a milk teeth eruption, where the Gum pad (milk teeth erupting region) of the baby should be cleaned by wet cotton by the mother.

-   Every child from infant age that is when first milk teeth erupt, should start visiting a dentist every 6 months for a general check up.
