Tigard Dentist Brushes His Son’s Teeth

Tigard Dentist Brushes His Son’s Teeth!  Tigard Dentist Dr. Justin Marostica has fun brushing his son’s teeth.  If you don’t know Dr. Marostica, he has 3 kids, Zach (9), Kate (6), and Ryan (14 months). As a Dentist in Tigard, he feels very strongly about establishing good oral hygiene habits early, which means brushing and flossing kid’s teeth at an early age.  He likes to start as soon as they get their first tooth.

He usually will start with as soft bristle toothbrush and water.  This gets his kids use to having a toothbrush in their mouth.  Make sure to be gentle because those bristles can feel like sandpaper on a baby’s tender gums.  You can also use special toothwipes that you can find at the store.  They are just as effective for kids just getting their teeth.

Dr. Marostica will start flossing once the child has more teeth, but makes an emphasis to floss daily once the child has all of their baby teeth.  Other things that can help as the child gets older is an electric toothbrush and floss on a stick.  Here is a funny video of Tigard Dentist Dr. Marostica brushing his son Ryan’s teeth.
