Brishing teeth
tothebeach4 posted:
My son just turned a year old last week. He has four teeth on the top, 3 on the bottom (the 4th hasn't popped up yet) and we have one top molar starting to make it's way through. I was wondering when we should start "brushing" his teeth to help promote good hygiene for the future?

Oops... Subject should say "Brushing teeth", LOL!

You should start brushing as soon as teeth come in. actually you should at least run a damp washcloth on just their gums to keep harmful bacteria from building up even before then. I used one of those toothbrushes you slip on your finger until she was about 2 and could listen to direction to keep her mouth open while I brushed.
