When Should I Begin Brushing My Child’s Teeth?
So, your infant’s first tooth has just erupted! So what do you do?
When this happens for the first time, it’s important to being a daily brushing routine. A pea-size amount of fluoride toothpaste should be used after the child is old enough not to swallow it. By age 4 or 5, children should be able to brush their own teeth twice a day with your supervision. Once your child turns 7 or 8, be sure that they are able to thoroughly and correctly brush their teeth on their own.
