Baby teeth may be small, but that doesn't make them any less
important! It's a good idea to start cleaning your baby's teeth twice a day as
soon as you see a tooth appear. If you start early, your baby will get used to
having his or her teeth cleaned.
According to the ADA, parents should no longer wait until children turn two to
begin brushing their teeth with fluoride toothpaste.
Did you know?
- About 25% of U.S. children develop cavities before
- Using small amounts of fluoride toothpaste could help
- Parents should use rice-grain size dots of fluoride toothpaste on children's first
teeth and pea-size blobs once they turn three.
- Children should be taught to spit out excess toothpaste as
soon as possible.
So when should you actually take your baby to the
dentist? We recommend that your baby be
seen for their first dental visit within six months when the first tooth
appears and no later than their first birthday.
