Commonly Asked Questions Of Dr. Marx About Your Children's Dental Care...

"Dr. Marx, when should I start cleaning my baby's teeth?"

  This is a good habit to start early!  The teeth must be cleaned as they erupt.  Use a damp washcloth or a toothbrush. 

If your health care provider agrees, use a tiny dab of fluoride toothpaste.  Tooth brushing is definitely a parents job in the preschool years. 

Children are usually able to brush their teeth well when they are 8 years old.  Be sure to check your child's teeth regularly for any chalky white or brown spots which could be the beginning of tooth decay.
