Tips from Your Dentist: Teach Your Child How to Brush Their Baby Teeth


Once your child’s first tooth starts to erupt, it is time to begin a regular dental hygiene routine. As your child grows, he or she will be able to begin learning how to do brushing and flossing with some assistance from you. Since many kids resist brushing their teeth or lack the fine motor skills needed to do a good job, it is important for you to supervise them and provide continuing assistance with getting their baby teeth clean.

Do It Early

Instead of waiting until your child has all of his or her baby teeth, start brushing early. You can use a small finger brush when your child has just a few teeth. Once your child has more than four teeth, it is time to upgrade to a toothbrush for toddlers, and some infant to toddler toothpaste as recommended by your dentist in Corning, NY. Starting a good dental hygiene habit early in life helps to integrate teeth cleaning as a normal part of a morning and bedtime routine.
