    When looking for pacifier, safety is a major concern. You do not want a pacifier that comes apart and hurts the oral cavity.

    Key takeaways:

    • Choose a pacifier that will not affect the development of the jaw or tooth alignment. The pacifier should also not come apart when in the mouth.
    • In the first few months, clean the gums with gauze. Rubbing the gums also helps during teething.
    • Once teeth appear, ensure that your child is brushing twice every day with fluoride toothpaste.
