No artificial colors or preservatives.

Fluoride-free.

Natural flavors only.

SMALL SMILES NEED EXTRA SPECIAL CARE

When your baby is about six months old, you may notice the first baby teeth will begin pushing through the surface of the gum. However, teeth can sometimes appear as early as three months or as late as twelve months. Your infant may show some of these normal symptoms beforehand:


Swollen gums
Flushed cheeks
Increased dribbling
Irritability

Brushing should begin as soon as baby teeth start coming in. Our dental experts developed a special training toothpaste. It’s fluoride-free with no artificial colors or preservatives and safe to swallow when used as directed. Unlike regular toothpaste, it’s less abrasive and has a baby-friendly apple-banana flavor.

 

YOUR BABY'S DIET CAN AFFECT TOOTH DECAY

AT-WILL FEEDING

Sticking to a schedule will help your baby’s teeth avoid decay. At-will feeding can stop once the first baby teeth begin to erupt and your child starts eating foods other than breast milk.
 

DRINKING FROM A BOTTLE

Sugary juices and drinks can promote tooth decay. That’s why only milk and water should be put in a child’s bottle. At bedtime, it’s important to only use water because overnight exposure to the sugars in milk can cause cavities too.

If your child wants a sugary drink, try to limit it to mealtimes. Use a cup and a straw angled away from the teeth so the drink goes straight to the back of the mouth.
