ORAL HYGIENE: Brushing a baby's teeth

Oral Hygiene

After weeks of watching your baby drool and fuss, you finally spot that first little tooth bud popping up through the gums.

Over the next couple of years, your baby's gummy smile will gradually be replaced by two rows of baby teeth.

That's why caring for baby teeth and keeping them decay-free is so important.
