I am very aware that baby teeth are temporary, but that shouldn’t lower the priority of keeping them healthy. I also understand that there are many causes far beyond neglecting a good mouth scrubbing that may lead to the mentioned.

Great Products for Children’s Teeth
Here are some products I’ve tried to hopefully avoid my son’s mouth from involuntarily looking like a Cash Money Rapper in B.G’s Bling Bling music video. These have helped me from a tight-lipped boy to a toddler who loves to brush his teeth. And remember it takes 30 days to learn a habit so start your little one in the right direction!
