Give your baby healthy teeth from the start:
- Gently brush baby’s teeth twice a day. Use a tiny amount of fluoride toothpaste. Take your baby to the dentist by her/his first birthday. Continue regular check-ups as recommended. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria. Your baby can “catch” the bacteria from you. Keep your mouth healthy and don’t share cups or spoons. Put only water, milk or formula in bottles or sippy cups. Don’t put baby to bed with a bottle or cup. Limit sweet snacks and sugary drinks, including juice. Bearable Dentistry dentists and hygienists can offer more advice on starting your child off on the right foot for a healthy lifetime smile.
