How to avoid cavities and instill good oral habits in children
- Begin cleaning gums and teeth with wash cloth or soft brush morning and night, as soon as baby is born.
- Use only a pea sized amount of toothpaste, and do not use fluoridated toothpaste until child is old enough to spit it all out.
- Brush twice daily, especially at night, for 2-3 minutes… about the length of a song. Floss all teeth at nighttime as well.
- Child should have nothing to eat or drink after nighttime brushing, besides water.
