babyAdy's first set of toothbrush and toothpaste
Question: When should I start cleaning my baby's teeth?
Answer: Parents should start brushing their baby's teeth as soon as they appear. At first, just use a soft cloth or gauze moistened with water to wipe plaque from the teeth and gum twice a day but when other teeth have appeared, consider using a soft bristles tooth brush for the process. Only small amount of toothpaste is allowed especially if the toothpaste is fluoridated. Fluoride can be toxic for children if digested in large quantities so keep it away if the child is still unable to spit out the toothpaste.
