The American Dental Association (ADA) advise that babies should start seeing a dentist no latter then their first birthday. However good dental care for babies start before their first tooth comes in.
By running a damp washcloth over a baby’s gums daily will help clear away harmful bacteria. Parents will be able to start brushing a kids’ teeth as soon as they come in with and infant toothbrush using water with just a smear of toothpaste until about age two. Around two year of age your child will be able to spit while brushing. At that point they will be able to use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste with supervision.
