Take your child to the
 
DENTIST BY ONE!

The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child should go to the dentist within six months of getting their first tooth and no later than their first birthday.

 

BABY'S FIRST VISIT TO THE DENTIST

 

At the first check-up, the dentist will:

 

Check your child for cavities

● Show you how to brush and floss your baby's teeth

● Teach you about food, drinks, and habits that can cause cavities

● Talk about fluoride and how it can prevent cavities

● Check your child's bite, growth, and development

● Give you information to prevent accidents as your baby grows

 

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR BABY'S SMILE

 

● CLEAN: Clean your baby's gums with a damp washcloth after eating and drinking.

 

● BRUSH: Once the first tooth shows up, use a soft toothbrush and water to brush your baby's teeth and gums. Brush in soft gentle circles.

● NO BOTTLE IN BED: Don't let your baby fall asleep with a bottle of milk or sugary drinks at nap time or at night.

● GIVE WATER: Give your child water. Do not give your child drinks with added sugar, such as soda or juice.

● DON'T SHARE FORKS, SPOONS OR FOOD: If you put food or eating utensils in your mouth, do not put them in your child's mouth. Doing so spreads germs that can cause cavities.
