How to Care for Your Child’s First Teeth

Baby teeth are important for your child’s nutrition, speech, and overall health and well-being, so it’s important to develop good dental hygiene habits early to protect them.

Brush all your child’s teeth twice a day with a soft, child-sized toothbrush. Make sure to reach all surfaces with the brush. As your child gets older and the baby teeth start to touch, begin flossing daily.

For children under age three, use a smear of fluoride toothpaste—no more than the size of a grain of rice. Children ages three and older can use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. These older children need to be reminded to spit out the paste, not swallow it.

Help young children with brushing. The American Dental Association recommends parents brush their children’s teeth until age six. My policy is that until your child can cut his own meat at mealtimes, you need to help him brush.
