Dental care in small children

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. James Bush at the Colonial Heights Medical Center is offering tips for dental care of small children.

Don't put kids to bed with food or a bottle.

Check to see if your water contains adequate fluoride and avoid sticky candies.

If your child is one year old or younger, wipe their gums with a clean cloth.  If they are more than a year old, brush their teeth twice day. Start scheduling a dentist appointment around the age of one.
