Your Baby's Teeth

Here are some common questions asked of dentist Ethan Janson about dental care for infants.  Seattle dentist Ethan Janson is happy to answer any questions you might have by e-mail or calling our downtown Seattle dentists office!  We accept new patients of all ages and emergencies.

How and When to Care for Your Child's Teeth at Home
please call your dentist or e-mail Dr. Janson with any questions about home dental care...

1. Using a damp washcloth or toothbrush, clean your baby's gums, even before any teeth erupt.

2. When teeth appear, use an infant soft-bristled toothbrush.  If your dentist recommends it, a small droplet of toothpaste may be used to provide adequate fluoride therapy.  As a parent, look for small white or brown spots on your baby's teeth, which may indicate decay.

3. As a dentist, I strongly recommend ending sucking via bottle or breast by 1 year of age.  This will help your baby avoid teeth misalignment and baby bottle tooth decay.

4. Teach your child to brush at night prior to going to sleep.  Teeth are more susceptible to cavities while sleeping due to reduced salivary flow.
