Infant Dental Plan
After birth parents should massage their baby’s gums with their little finger, a soft cloth or a rubber fingertip toothbrush. You should do this a few times a day for no more than two or three seconds. By doing this consistently it will prevent most fussing and fretting when the infant is eventually taken to the dentist.
Toddler Dental Plan
It’s recommended to not use fluoridated toothpaste until age 3. After age 3, parents should be supervising their child while brushing. Use no more than a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and make sure your child does not swallow excess toothpaste. And remember to sing, “This is the way we brush our teeth, brush our teeth, brush are teeth… And we do it every morning.”
