The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends the first checkup when the first tooth comes in, or around the first birthday. These early visits won’t include X-rays or a cleaning until ages 3-5 but are still very important for multiple reasons:

As a dentist in Framingham that’s focused on prevention, we’ll give you personalized tips for keeping your child’s teeth and gums clean at their checkup visits. But there are some general tips that can work for every family.

For babies, gently wipe their gums 2-3 times a day with a clean, damp cloth or use a special, ultra-soft teething brush. After their first tooth comes in, and prior to age 3, use a very light smear or rice-sized amount of toothpaste. After age 3, use a pea-sized amount.

Although it can be a struggle for some kids to get in the habit of brushing and flossing, positive reinforcement and small rewards for consistency can go a long way. When they’re old enough, let your child pick out their own age-appropriate toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and other products. As much as possible, set a good example. If your child sees you brushing and flossing regularly, they’ll be more likely to adopt good habits themselves.
