The first milk tooth erupts from about six to eight months. Dental care should start from the first tooth by brushing at least once a day. Finger sticks, for example, are good for this. As soon as the first tooth erupts, dental care can begin. At the very beginning, it is usually enough to brush the baby's teeth with a damp flannel or a fingerstall. If more teeth come in, you should use a children's toothbrush and toothpaste for babies and children.
To make sure that your child does not forget to brush any part of the tooth, it is best to use the KAI method:
K= The chewing surfaces: The chewing surfaces of the teeth are brushed first with back and forth movements.
A= The outer surfaces: The outer surfaces are cleaned afterwards with circular movements. The teeth are placed on top of each other during this process.
I= The inner surfaces: Finally, brush the inner surfaces from red to white (from the gums to the teeth).
