Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do you brush baby teeth?

    • Whether nursing or bottle-feeding newborns to 6-month-olds, remove bacteria from your baby’s gums after every feeding by:

      1. Putting a terry-cloth finger cot on your index finger or wrapping your finger with a soft, clean, moist gauze

      2. Gently rubbing the cot or gauze along your baby's gums

    • When your child's teeth begin coming in at age 6 months through age 2, that's also the time brushing becomes a necessity. You should begin:

      1. Using soft-bristled, wide-handled toothbrushes with small heads and mild, fluoridated baby toothpaste

      2. Putting just a sliver of toothpaste (the size of a grain of rice since your baby can't spit) on the toothbrush and brush gently – whether it's one tooth or many

  • When should I start brushing my baby's teeth with toothpaste?

    As soon as that first precious tooth pops out, your baby is ready for real brushing to keep away plaque. Here's your getting-started checklist:

    • Start with fluoridated baby toothpaste. This usually says on the box that it's for "ages 0-2," so it's okay for babies 1-year-old and younger.

    • Get a toothbrush made especially for babies' mouths with extra soft bristles.

    • Gently brush twice a day using a teeny rice-sized sliver of toothpaste. (Keep in mind that your baby won't be able to spit out the toothpaste.)

    • Schedule baby's first dentist visit.

    • Discuss your baby's oral health care routine with your dental professionals during the first visit.

    By using a baby toothbrush, you'll begin getting your little darling used to the feeling of a brush in the mouth. If you combine brushing with silly songs and fun games, your child will learn that brushing is a pleasant experience – not one to be avoided.

  • how long are you supposed to brush your teeth?

    Two minutes of teeth brushing twice a day should help remove harmful plaque and prevent tooth decay. Don't forget to pause and let them spit!

  • When should my child have his or her first dental appointment?

    Schedule your infant's first dentist appointment before their first birthday. That's the perfect time for your dental professionals to do a checkup and make sure your child's teeth are developing nicely.

  • When will my baby's first tooth come in?

    Expect your baby to start teething around 6 months of age, though some infants might start earlier and some later – even up to age 1.
