Children Oral Care Tips

5 facts parents should know about baby’s first tooth

  1. Baby’s first tooth appears around 6 months old. Teething can start around 3 months of age. Typically, the lower front teeth come in first. By the age of 3 years, most children will have all of their 20 baby teeth.
  2. Brush your child’s teeth twice a day with fluoride.
  3. Remember not to put your baby to bed with a bottle - it can lead to tooth decay.
  4. Do not use teething tablets, gels with benzocaine, homeopathic teething gels or tablets, or amber teething necklaces.
  5. Make your first dental appointment when the first tooth appears.
