Infant Dental Care

Thirteen(13) to Fifteen(15) Months old

Brush teeth, gums, and tongue gently after each meal. Brush teeth using a small, circular, jiggling motion with soft bristles at an angle to gums.

Give your toddler a soft, childs toothbrush and let him or her copy brushing teeth. Do not leave your toddler alone with a toothbrush.

Show good dental habits by daily brushing and flossing your own teeth.

Sweet dreams not sweet drinks. Give your toddler a favorite toy, not the bottle, at nap or bedtime.

Ask about fluoride for your toddler's teeth.
