Introducing Your Baby to Healthy Brushing Habits

November 04, 2015 | Posted in Kids | Be the first one to comment


  1. As early as it becomes possible start wiping your baby’s gums with damp, clean washcloth, especially after feedings. This will stimulate the gums, wipe off bacteria building on teeth and will introduce your baby to the process and feeling of brushing.

  2. Once the 1st tooth appeared, transition to a finger brush with a small, rice size amount of safe to swallow, fluoride free toothpaste (4).

  3. Gradually introduce a full size kids’ toothbrush to the child, continue to brush with fluoride free, safe to swallow toothpaste. Our toddler brushing giude will come in handy at this point. 

  4. Use safe to swallow training toothpaste until your toddler learns not to swallow the paste as well as to thoroughly rinse her/his mouth. Switching to fluoride toothpaste would than be a safe option. 

At Vibrant Square Dental we follow the recommendation of Canadian Dental Association and advise brinning your infant for their first checkup by 12 months of age or within 6 month of their 1st tooth erruption. 

Start your child's dental health routine on time, and it will become an effortless habit. Call us for an appointment at 905-553-3004 or book it online.
