Baby teeth need to be cared for as soon as they appear. Just like adults, kids should have their teeth cleaned twice a day – after breakfast and just before bed. Look for a toothbrush with a very small head and soft bristles. It recommends brushing teeth with water only for babies younger than 18 months. Parents should help their children brush their teeth until the age of eight and should avoid buying toothpastes that are high in fluoride. Don’t allow them to eat toothpaste.
