Many parents admit to be slack about brushing their child’s teeth when they’re very young, but the truth is that it’s an important habit to start early.

Long before your baby has any teeth at all, you should be caring for their smile by wiping their gums with a damp washcloth after feedings.

Once your child has their very first tooth, start gently brushing it twice a day with a child-sized, rounded-head kids’ toothbrush with soft bristles. Or you can buy a “parents’ toothbrush,” which has a longer handle that’s easier for you to hold.
