Feb. 5th 2018

Once your baby cuts their first tooth, you can then start to gently brush the tooth with a soft bristled toothbrush made for babies.  It is not absolutely essential to use toothpaste to clean your baby’s teeth. The most important part of keeping baby’s teeth clean is the brushing action itself. If you want to use toothpaste, then make sure to choose one that is designed specifically for infants, because they contain very little, if any fluoride. The American Association of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines suggest that babies under the age of two receive no fluoride at all.
