Pediatric Dental Tip #1

Dr. Katie Stewart

A common question new parents ask is "when should I begin brushing my child's teeth?".  The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends brushing your child's teeth as soon as they erupt!  They also recommend using a small smear of fluoridated toothpaste on a soft bristled toothbrush. No need to buy the training toothpaste!  As long as the brushing is with adult hands and supervision, the very small amount of fluoride toothpaste is of great benefit to the newly erupted teeth!

So brush morning and night every day.
