Baby's First Tooth: Health Tip

Baby's First Tooth: Health Tip

For most babies, the two front teeth appear first, says the American Academy of Pediatrics. Though babies won't develop teeth for months, it's important for parents to know how to care for them.

The academy mentions these additional facts:
  • Most babies develop teeth between 6 and 12 months.
  • Fluoride should be in your child's toothpaste at 6 months of age.
  • Massaging sore gums can help soothe baby's teething pain.
  • Do not use teething tablets, gels with benzocaine or amber teething necklaces.
  • Brush your child's teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Make your first dental appointment when the first tooth appears.
