Q.

Baby''s teeth

Hi Doc

I was just wondering, my baby is just over 1 years old. He got his second tooth this morning - how do I clean (brush) his teeth and with what?

Many thanks!

Nadia

You are correct to start cleaning your baby's teeth early on. Use a baby toothbrush and a baby toothpaste.Ask at your pharmacy about this.

Hi

I was at the dentist last week with similar question, mine is 18 months old, she''s says any toothbrush is good! You get toothbrush &  toothpaste for infants / toddlers at any shop, I buy from Dischem. She said the most important thing is to brush there teeth twice a day even if you have to hold them down....

Good luck
