Dental health
Keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible and keep visits to the dentist to a minimum.
Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is a problem affecting some babies with a tight piece of skin between the underside of their tongue and the floor of their mouth (lingual frenulum). It can sometimes affect the baby's feeding, making it hard for them to attach properly to their mother's breast.
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD)
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is a problem affecting the 'chewing' muscles and the joints between the lower jaw and the base of the skull. Doctors sometimes refer to the condition as "myofascial pain disorder"
Dentures (false teeth)
Dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic (plastic), nylon or metal. They fit snugly over the gums to replace missing teeth and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps. Gaps left by missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speech, and teeth either side of the gap may grow into the space at an angle.
Gum disease
Gum disease is a very common condition where the gums become swollen, sore or infected. It's estimated to affect more than half of all adults in the UK to some degree and most people experience it at least once. It is much less common in children.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in water in varying amounts, depending on which area of the UK you live in. It's also found in certain foods, including tea and fish.
Teething symptoms and how babies' teeth emerge
A baby’s first teeth (known as milk or deciduous teeth) usually develop while the child is growing in the womb. In most babies, these teeth start to emerge through the gums when they are around six months old.
Cleft lip and palate
A cleft is a gap or split in the upper lip, the roof of the mouth (palate), or sometimes both. It occurs when separate areas of the face do not join together properly when a baby is developing during pregnancy.
