In order to provide good oral health care for your baby, you will want to start cleaning your baby’s teeth twice a day as soon as the first tooth appears. You can use a damp cloth to clean your baby teeth and gums until your child is around a year, then you can use a baby toothbrush.
Make sure you use non fluoride toothpaste and you only still need to use just a dab. It is suggested not to use any toothpaste with fluoride until your child can spit and knows not to eat or swallows the toothpaste. It is suggested that you take your child to see the dentist at or around their first birthday.
