Taking good care of baby’s first teeth is an important step in the health of permanent teeth. Here are some tips to help keep your infant’s teeth healthy.

  • Don’t let your child fall asleep with a bottle that contains milk or formula.
  • Before teeth come in, clean gums after feedings using a damp washcloth.
  • Once teeth erupt, brush with a soft toothbrush every day. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a tiny smear of toothpaste (the size of a grain of rice) be used to brush baby teeth twice daily as soon as they erupt. Once children are 3 to 6 years old, then the amount should be increased to a pea-size dollop.
  • Developing good dental care habits from the very start is one of the best things you can teach your children and we’re here to help you do just that. A lifetime of good health starts in infancy. That’s why we believe in prevention and early intervention. It is important to form good habits and positive experiences at an early age.
