Fluoride Toothpaste for Your Little One

Toothbrush and Fluoride Toothpaste | pediatric dentist dectur il

Starting good oral habits early for your little one are key to a lifetime of amazing oral health. We encourage cleaning your teeth early and having your child seen for their first dental appointment. There is a new recommendation by the American Association of Pediatric Dentists about the care of your child's teeth.

When To Start Using Fluoride Toothpaste

The American Association of Pediatric Dentists recommends fluoride toothpaste as soon as the first tooth erupts.  The American Academy of Pediatrics have updated their guidelines to include a smear of fluoride on your baby's toothbrush for dental health. 

Call our office to have your little one seen for their first dental appointment.
