October is National Dental Hygiene Month! We asked our Hygienist at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design:
What are some tips for parents of babies who are starting to brush those first teeth?
It’s best to use the tiniest amount of toothpaste and a type specific for toddlers and infants. A good approach is to allow child to brush themselves, then parent can do so after. If child is very resistant, then wipe teeth with wet washcloth to remove plaque.
