Oral hygiene for infants: brushing a baby’s teeth

let's get it deposited under the obvious

challenge in brushing a baby's teeth is

the lack of cooperation most children

under the age of 3 will not happily go

along that said you need not worry that

brushing your child's teeth may leave

him traumatize safest ways to have the

chili on you either on a bed on a couch

or on the floor you should be able to

restrain the child's head movements to

avoid any injury use a brush with a

small head and soft bristles to reach

all surfaces of the teeth it is also

recommended to use fluoride toothpaste

from a very young age as soon as the

first p come in fluoride protects them

against cavities since children under

the age of three are not able to spit

you should only use a very small amount

of toothpaste about the size of a grain

of rice or less brush a child's teeth

twice a day in the morning after

breakfast and most importantly at night

before bed ideally the child should not

eat or drink anything except water after

his bedtime brushing sweet liquids such

as juices and milk must be avoided very

small children whose teeth are not yet

touching each other bossing is usually

not required flossing should begin as

soon as teeth come into contact with

each other for babies with no teeth or

only one or two teeth the mouth can be

cleaned after each feeding using a moist

face cloth
