“How do I begin cleaning my baby’s teeth?”
Typically around four months, your child will sprout their first one or two teeth. At that time, we encourage you to simply wipe any plaque you see off their teeth and gums twice a day, or after major meals, with a wet piece of gauze or washcloth. This will help rid any bacteria that could be harmful for your child’s emerging teeth. As soon as your child has several strong baby teeth, consider using a soft, small toothbrush to begin brushing in the morning and at night to build habit.
