When do you start brushing kids’ teeth? The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends starting to brush their teeth as soon as their first tooth appears.
While this is a common question among parents, it’s an important one to understand in order to start teaching good dental hygiene at an early age.
Even before your baby’s first tooth appears, you can begin caring for their gums. You can wipe away bacteria and plaque using a soft washcloth, piece of gauze, or a gentle toothbrush. This can help reduce the risk of infections when your child begins teething.
After their first tooth appears, the AAPD recommends you bring your child to see the dentist. By taking your child to the dentist at an early age, the dentist can help make sure your children’s teeth come in healthy and strong with regular dental cleanings and X-rays.
Your child’s dentist can also work with you to teach you how to keep their teeth clean and healthy in between visits. It’s recommended to start small with just a soft toothbrush and a rice-sized amount of toothpaste. As more teeth come in and your child gets older, you can slowly begin increasing the amount of toothpaste.
