Some other tips to promote your child's oral health

When your child is just a baby,  be sure that you clean their gums before their first tooth grows in. To do this, use a dam washcloth to rinse off their gums after you finish feeding them.

Also, once you start noticing their first tooth, be sure to start brushing them! You do not have to go too crazy. Just wet a small toothbrush and gently rub it along the tooth and gums. For this, use fluoride-free toothpaste, so they won't swallow it.
