It’s important to start taking care of your baby’s teeth as soon as the first one comes in. Preparing a child for a life of dental health is of paramount importance and much of the early work must be done in the home. For toddlers with brand-new teeth, it works well to use a washcloth to wipe the teeth off. Once your child turns one, he or she should begin brushing their teeth twice a day as part of their routine.
At Fort Des Moines Dental, we take the care of a child’s smile with the utmost seriousness. Our staff uses nonthreatening, effective cleaning practices to put a child at ease while accomplishing our shared goals—a clean and healthy mouth.
