Though of course your child’s baby teeth will fall out naturally, it’s still very important that you help them take good care of their oral hygiene and teeth from an early age. We recommend you begin brushing your child’s teeth as soon as they emerge, to educate your child in good oral hygiene and help them see brushing their teeth as a normal part of everyday life. Use a soft bristled baby toothbrush and brush gently using a tiny amount of toothpaste.
It’s also very important to brush your child’s teeth thoroughly before bedtime, to remove any stuck-on food which bacteria will feast on while they sleep. The enamel-eating acid this produces can easily cause tooth decay during the ten to twelve hours your child is asleep.
