The Guide to Taking Care of Your Child's Teeth
Oral hygiene for kids is just as important as it is for adults.
Even though their little teeth are going to come out and make way for their permanent teeth, keeping the baby teeth healthy is vital to the health and wellness of your child.
When You Should Start Caring for Your Child's Teeth
Oral hygiene for kids starts the moment your baby comes home from the hospital. Don't wait until your child develops their first tooth.
After nursing or bottle-feeding your baby, gently wipe their gums with a damp washcloth.
When their little teeth start to show up, invest in a child's toothbrush. These brushes are much smaller than the average toothbrush and have softer bristles. They'll be gentle on your child's gums but will do a good job of removing plaque.
Around the age of two to three years, your child will have teeth that start to touch, so this is a great time to start flossing. Make sure to talk with our team regarding when it's best to start flossing your child's teeth, as each child has their own unique needs.
