What is the age that we should start brushing teeth of children.?
I wondered this myself, so I did a lot of research on the subject. I found that it was recommended that you start cleaning your childs gums before they get their first tooth, and continue to brush once their teeth come in. I did this with my son and so far so good.
I started with all my children as soon as they got their first tooth. But didn't use a brush, my dentist had suggested using wash cloth and rub their teeth with it. Started using toothbrush after they started eating solid food.
When they get the first tooth. Before they had teeth after eating when I would clean them up I would wipe gums with a cloth.
Let them use a small soft toothbrush - under strict supervision - as soon as they are able to hold it. If they don't have teeth yet, they can brushing their gums. I wouldn't use any kind of toothpaste, however, until they can understand the concept of spitting it out.
