Your Baby's Oral Health

Baby with mouth openHealthy gums (and later, teeth) are important for your baby’s overall health and development. 

  • Begin cleaning your baby’s mouth during the first few days after birth. 
  • After every feeding, wipe your baby’s gums with a clean, soft cloth or a soft infant toothbrush and water to remove plaque and milk that can harm new teeth that may be coming through.
  • Do not use fluoride toothpaste until your child is 2 to 3 years old.
