3 answers to children’s oral care questions & MAM dental products

February is National Children’s Dental Health Care Month and the MAM brand is bringing awareness to subject with 3 questions about children’s oral care

3 answers to common questions about children’s oral care

Here are some common questions about children’s oral care:


How to clean the inside of baby’s mouth?

Contrary to popular belief, proper oral care for baby should begin before the first tooth appears. The AAPD suggests parents gently wipe the inside of baby’s mouth and gums with a clean, soft cloth regularly to remove germs and leftover milk.

When to start using a toothbrush with baby?

As soon as teeth appear, start brushing two times a day with an age-appropriate toothbrush to gently remove plaque and bacteria. Look for brushes designed just for babies that have rounded heads and super-soft bristles.

When to start using toothpaste with baby?

When children reach the age of two, parents can use a pea-size amount of children’s toothpaste. Look for toothbrushes that feature indicator bristles to help determine the correct amount of toothpaste for little ones and use a toothbrush that allows mom and baby to hold the handle together for guided brushing. (The AAPD also recommends a smear of fluoride toothpaste for children under two who are at-risk for tooth decay. Health care professionals and pediatric dentists can help parents determine if baby is at-risk.)

As you can see, establishing an oral care routine early on helps set the stage for a lifetime of good dental hygiene!
