Tips For Tooth Safety
- The most common cause of tooth injuries in babies and toddlers is the bathtub. All that slippery porcelain makes it easy for them to fall and hurt their teeth. To minimize this risk, never leave a baby or toddler unattended in the bathtub.
- Frisbees, balls, and other things meant for throwing can easily cause tooth injuries. Before your child goes out to play, talk to them about safety and stress the importance of not aiming for each other’s heads.
- Playground equipment such as swings, a jungle gym, or monkey barsare not kind to teeth if a child falls on them face-first. Make sure your child knows to be careful before going on the playground.
