Healthy gums make way for healthy teeth! Establishing a dental care routine will help your child be less sensitive to brushing and will set good dental habits as your baby grows. Clean your baby's gums after feedings, YES even before they have teeth.
To keep baby's gums healthy, gently wipe them with a clean, moist washcloth after feeding and be sure to schedule a dental appointment by their first tooth or first birthday!
Once your baby's teeth start coming in, use a very small drop of toothpaste to brush, the size of a grain of rice.
