What is the best way to clean my infant's teeth? She's getting her first teeth in, and we don't know what method is best or easiest. .

In brief: Clean wash cloth

Dipped in water, squeeze out excess water -gently rub the teeth and massage the gums.
If teething pain, dip the washcloth in cool water, squeeze out excess water and wrap around you finger and gently place in child's mouth.

In brief: Durham, Gauze

Durham, gauze will work for now, but an infant finger brush is best.
Gerber sells one with a tube of non-fluoride baby toothpaste. Infants tend not to be too happy but don't let that discourage you. You should also know your finger won't be too enthusiastic either. Hope this is helpful, michael i. Wollock, dmd, agd fellow dentistry at suburban square 610-649-0313 www.Dentistryatsuburbansquare.Com.
