Dental care for young children
As soon as the first teeth appear, they must be cleaned every day. Use a small toothbrush with soft bristles and just a dab of fluoride toothpaste. Remember to floss between any teeth that are touching, too. It is best not to let children fall asleep or sleep with a bottle of milk or juice, since the sugar it contains will remain stuck to their teeth night after night and eventually destroy the tooth enamel.
