Tooth Care for Babies

Last updated 5 years ago

Start your child on the path to good oral hygiene early in life. Begin cleaning your infant’s gums before the first teeth appear. To do so, dampen a clean washcloth and gently wipe the gums during bath time. This will also help your child become accustomed to having his or her mouth cleaned.

Watch this video to learn more about caring for your baby’s teeth. The pediatrician in this video explains how to brush your baby’s teeth when they appear, as well as when you should start using toothpaste. You’ll also learn why you should never put your baby to sleep with a bottle in his or her mouth.

Bring your baby to a pediatric dentist before his or her first birthday. Adelberg Montalvan Pediatric Dentistry of Long Island offers comprehensive pediatric dental care. Contact us today at (516) 798-1111 to schedule an appointment.
