Toddler Teeth Tips

 In News

Caring for your child’s dental health is an important job! You love to see your child smile, so investing the time to keep it healthy is a no-brainer. A child should ideally start visiting a dentist by the age of two. Teeth usually start to come in at 6 months old and continue until the age of 3 years old. If a child’s gums are tender due to tooth eruption, you can soothe them by rubbing a finger on their gums, a cool spoon or a frozen teething ring. Pain medications or gels can also be another alternative.

To brush your toddler’s teeth:
Use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste
Ensure your child doesn’t swallow the toothpaste
Use a toothbrush with soft bristles
Brush inside surfaces of teeth first (where plaque builds up the most) then clean outside surfaces

If your child needs a dental appointment, bring them in to see our friendly team in Saint-Lambert at Dr. Alaby and Associates!
