are dental wipes for baby and toddler smiles! YES...baby teeth are important!!! Tooth Tissues, easy to use, disposable, and effective wipes for cleaning your child's teeth and gums. Sadly, tooth decay in our youngest population is on the rise. However, "nursing bottle caries", or "baby bottle decay" is largely preventable – and Tooth Tissues can help.
Tooth Tissues are disposable textured dental wipes specially designed to help remove plaque from your baby and toddler's teeth and gums. Tooth Tissues are perfect for busy new parents eager to get their child off to a healthy start. Formulated with xylitol – a natural cavity fighter, use Tooth Tissues with confidence because they are 99% natural, fluoride and paraben-free. Tooth tissues may be used from birth to promote healthy habits that will last a lifetime. You might even like to use them for your own teeth between brushings! Are baby teeth important? Aren't they lost later anyway?
BABY TEETH ARE VERY IMPORTANT! It is a common myth that primary/baby teeth do not matter. Proper oral hygiene begins at birth!
Every child should be given the opportunity to grow up never experiencing dental decay. Baby teeth are important for chewing which is needed for proper nutrition and helps develop the bones and muscles of the face. They give kids a nice smile that is important to establishing self-confidence. Baby teeth aid in learning speech, and hold space in the mouth for the adult teeth to grow in.
With proper oral care and nutrition, no child should ever have to suffer from cavities or more serious dental infection. When can we start using Tooth Tissues?
Once feeding patterns are established, Tooth Tissues can be used to wipe all around a baby's mouth. Can they be used for more than just babies and toddlers?
YES! Our wipes are perfect for the "transitional smile" when adult front teeth are erupting. As adult teeth come in, they are usually spaced out making oral hygiene difficult for traditional toothbrushes and floss. Use Tooth Tissues to easily clean between these gaps. For Adults:
Tooth Tissues are ideal for any large gaps, around missing teeth, around a healing implant, and the back of the last teeth.
Tooth Tissues can also be used by anyone to wipe away decay causing plaque and freshen their mouth between brushings. Why 99% natural?
The 1% that is synthetic is the sodium levulinate. It is a preservative derived from plants that inhibits bacteria and other spoilage organisms. This allows us to be safe and still be paraben free. It is also what gives our wipes a distinct smell. What if my child is OVER 16 months?
Tooth Tissues can be used exclusively to clean a baby's mouth/teeth until their back molars arrive, which is on average 16 months. So, if you count your baby's teeth... and there are only the front 6 on the top and bottom, the Tooth Tissues will still serve you well by themselves.
When the primary molars are in, a toothbrush should be the primary form of oral hygiene especially at night. However, with that said, in both our offices, we hand out samples for babies, children and adults alike because there are many times you will not have a toothbrush handy and the xylitol in the wipes and the physical removal of plaque will help prevent tooth decay. Tooth Tissues can be used after juice or snack when you are on the go.
Use wipe around all surfaces of teeth. Cleanse around gums, tongue and cheeks. For use from birth to approximately 16 months. Dispose after one use.
Do not flush. Keep out of reach of small children. Choking hazard, do not let children under 6 use unattended. Do not use if allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients.
