It’s a good idea to begin good oral hygiene as early as possible. Even before your baby’s first tooth, you can gently clean your baby’s gums. Use a washcloth, or an infant toothbrush with soft bristles. As the first tooth arrives, you can begin brushing it with non-flouride toothpaste. A fluoridated toothpaste can be used once your child has learned to spit and does not eat the toothpaste.
Summit View Dental Centre wants to help you practice good oral health for your baby, because we know that establishing good oral habits early will help bring a lifetime of beautiful smiles for your child. Your baby’s first visit to the dentist is an exciting milestone, one that we look forward to celebrating with you!
