Your child should be seen by a dentist as soon as you see the first tooth appear in his or her mouth, and no later than his or her first birthday. Waiting until all the baby teeth have come in is not necessary and is often too late for children that are at high risk...
Brush your child’s teeth twice a day as soon as the first tooth comes in. Use a soft bristled toothbrush small enough for a baby with either plain water or a small amount of non-fluoridated toothpaste. Toothpaste containing fluoride can be used when your child is old enough to spit.
Children begin getting primary, or "baby", teeth at about six to eight months of age, although it is not abnormal for some children to reach their first birthday before getting a single tooth. Your child will produce ten primary teeth on the top jaw and ten primary teeth on the bottom.
Between the ages of 6 months and 10 months, your child will begin to show his or her first baby tooth. If this happens a little sooner or later than that there is usually nothing to worry about, as this is simply an average range, and every child's developmental rate is unique.
