When to Start Brushing Your Child's First Teeth

Caring for your child’s oral health starts at birth. Make him or her an appointment for family dentistry in Alpharetta by his or her first birthday, or as soon as his or her first tooth appears. Brushing those new teeth is also important.

This video explains when you should start brushing your child’s teeth. As soon as you can see teeth, you should begin to brush. You can use a soft-bristled toothbrush or a moist washcloth to remove plaque, but avoid using toothpaste until your dentist says it is safe. Even though your child will eventually lose these first teeth, preventing tooth decay still matters. Preventing cavities now can ensure a lifetime of better oral health as your child’s adult teeth come in.
