Dental Health Insurance for Infants and Toddlers

                New babies aren’t born with teeth, but dental health insurance is still crucial for infants to ensure healthy tooth growth. Semiannual checkups and cavity prevention in your newborn’s first five years will guarantee they have a healthy smile, fewer corrective procedures, and lower dental bills for the rest of their life. The first five years of a child’s life contain more dental health milestones than any other period. Having dental health coverage guarantees you can provide the best care for your child’s developing smile.

Dental Health Milestones

Oral Care

Newborns (0-4 months)

Newborns don’t have teeth, but their gums will already be developing. Clean them after feeding with a moistened washcloth wrapped around your index finger, gently massaging the tissue.

Tooth decay is caused by bacteria which can be transferred from person to person. Take care to clean your child’s bottle before feeding to prevent tooth infection.

Infants (4-12 months)

Infants begin teething between four and seven months. This may be uncomfortable for your infant; give them a cold teething ring or chilled washcloth to reduce swelling of the gums and saliva flow.

Check your child’s teeth regularly for small white or brown spots, which may be a sign of tooth decay. You should schedule a check-up with a dentist after your infant’s first tooth comes in to identify potential teething problems and discuss your infant’s dental hygiene.

1-year olds

Most children begin drinking from a cup in the months after their first birthday.

Your child now has enough teeth to be brushed! Use a soft-bristled children’s toothbrush and help your children brush twice a day. Good habits are built early.

Schedule biannual dental appointments to check up on your child’s developing teeth. If your water isn’t fluoridated, ask your dentist about infant fluoride treatments.

2-year olds

By two and a half, most infants develop a complete set of children’s teeth.

You can begin brushing with small amounts of toothpaste—teach your child to spit out the toothpaste and not swallow it.

3-year olds

By three years old, most children will have stopped sucking on a pacifier or their thumb. Talk with your dentist if your child continues to do so after age 3.

Continue to regularly bring your child to dental check-ups and look for signs of tooth decay. Preventing early childhood cavities keeps gums healthy and saves your child from tooth extractions, eventually straightening and strengthening adult teeth.
