Brush your Teeth!

This might sound simple but when should my child start brushing their teeth? For a simple question there is a simple answer. Brushing your child’s teeth should start even before your infant even has a tooth. The best thing to do is to get a damp cloth and run it over their gums after they have eaten. This will prevent buildup of harmful bacteria.

Then when your infant begins to show a few teeth you can start brushing them with a soft child’s toothbrush or rub them with gauze at the end of the day before they go nighty night.Starting the habit early will prevent many problems in the future from happening, such as tooth decay.
