Oral Hygiene
While most babies don't start getting teeth until they are six months old, infant dental care is important from the very beginning. Be sure to use a soft, moistened washcloth or piece of gauze and wipe down your baby's gums at least twice a day. Especially after feedings and before bedtime. This will help to wash off bacteria and prevent it from clinging to the gums and damaging infant teeth as they erupt.

When should I take my child for their first pediatric dental check-up?

The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that a child's first visit should be when the first tooth erupts in the mouth and no later than age one to two.

This first visit isn't for doing any real work, it's about introducing your child to the dentist's office. Getting them familiar with the office environment in a non-threatening way, thus building trust so the dentist may take a quick peek at his/her mouth.
