Brushing your child's teeth
This means proper dental care
should start as early as possible
and well before your baby’s first
tooth appears. The necessary type
and frequency of dental care
changes as your child grows. It’s
possible for the process to be
easier and less painful.
Did you know that teeth begin to form during the second
trimester of pregnancy? Did you know that your baby is
born with 20 primary teeth, many of which are already
fully developed in their jaw?
Toothpaste should
contain fluoride,
barring any
conflicting advice
you may receive
from a pediatric
dentist.
It is important to choose a proper
sized toothbrush that will fit in your
child’s mouth. The brush itself
should be soft so it doesn’t
damage the teeth or gums.
When teeth begin to show around 9
months, you can start to brush your
child’s teeth with an infant
toothbrush. A small amount of
toothpaste and water is all that is
needed.
Starting from birth, run a damp washcloth over your
baby’s gums to clear harmful bacteria from your
baby’s mouth.
Starting around 18 months, sit your
child facing away from you on your
lap and tilt their head back so you can
see all of their teeth. Place a small
amount of toothpaste (with fluoride)
on a soft toothbrush.
Angle the brush bristles toward
the gums and move gently in
circles to clean both the inner
and outer sides of the teeth
and the gums.
Switch strokes to brush back
and forth on the chewing
surface of the teeth.
Throughout the brushing
process, make sure your child
spits out the toothpaste.
At around age 6, your child is old
enough to brush their own teeth. It is
important to monitor the brushing to
make sure it is being done properly
and for several minutes.
Your child will likely
not floss on their own,
so it is important to
floss for them.
Babies and children can develop tooth
decay if proper dental habits aren’t started
early. Putting a baby or child to bed with a
bottle can harm their teeth because the
sugars in the juice or milk remain on the
teeth and gums and can eat away at the
enamel. Pitted or discolored teeth can
result, along with cavities.
Another sign of poor oral care
is red and swollen gums or
plaque, seen as a furry white
film over the teeth.
A children dentist specializes in
treating a range of issues
related to the dental health of
children and can identify if
another type of specialist is
needed.
The goals of a children dentist
include preventing problems
before they occur and
maintaining proper dental care.
Many pediatric dentists, such as
the team at Dental Kidz Club,
focus on creating an
atmosphere that’s fun and
exciting so your child looks
forward to their next checkup.
Dental Kidz Club encourages children to maintain
proper oral hygiene through education. Our offices
offer an energetic atmosphere with televisions and DVD
players in exam rooms. Locations even offer video
games in the waiting area.
We strive to make kids feel welcomed
and excited about visiting the dentist.

Summary
Proper oral care is important starting from birth
and continuing throughout childhood. The type of
cleaning routine and involvement needed by a
parent changes over time. Seeing a children
dentist is important for preventing issues and
maintaining optimal oral health.
