Many parents ask – what is the best way to start brushing my baby’s teeth? Well we have some answers for you!

Begin brushing your baby’s teeth as soon as their first tooth appears.  Use a soft, baby toothbrush with just a tiny dab of fluoride toothpaste.  Brush twice a day; brushing before bed is especially important.  Don’t miss brushing where the teeth and gums meet!  Lift your baby’s lip regularly to check for white or brown spots on their teeth. Look closely along the gum line.  Call your dentist if you notice anything unusual.  Take your baby to see a dentist once their first tooth comes in or by their first birthday.
