What you need to know about dental care

When your babies teeth start to emerge, it’s important to start healthy dental habits. Here’s how to care for those new pearly whites.
  • Baby’s brand new teeth need to be brushed, make sure to use a soft child’s toothbrush. Start with a rice grain-sized amount of toothpaste, brushing twice a day.
  • Make your baby’s first dental appointment when the first tooth appears, or by your baby’s first birthday. To help prevent cavities, never let your baby fall asleep with a bottle.
  • Check with your pediatrician to see if your local tap water contains fluoride, a mineral that helps prevent tooth decay, or if your child will need fluoride supplements.
  • Once your child is 3, it’s recommended to use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Teach your child to spit out excess toothpaste when they are able. Experts recommend putting the toothpaste on the toothbrush for your child until they are 6.
