It’s never too early to start helping your child enjoy better oral health! Even before their first tooth has emerged from the gums, use a mildly wet, clean washcloth to gently clean their gum tissue after each feeding. Once that initial tooth has arrived, switch over to a small toothbrush that has soft bristles. In fact, many stores carry toothbrushes that are designed specifically for infant’s mouths. Our doctors will be happy to explain these tips to you in detail and more when you bring your baby in for their first check-up.
