Tooth Care for Infants

Tooth care starts before your baby has teeth.  Tooth decay and cavities are more common in American children than any other chronic infectious disease.  However, parents can start protecting their child’s dental health almost from birth!

You can begin cleaning your baby’s mouth before his first teeth even erupt.  Simply use a damp washcloth or infant toothbrush to wipe your child’s gums clean.  When teeth erupt, brush twice a day with a non-fluoride toothpaste.  Be sure to keep drinks sugar-free, especially at night (fill baby bottles with water).  Starting early can help your child establish good oral health!
