a baby of one year age will be having approximately 4 to 6 teeth in her anterior portion of the jaws. these are primary incisor teeth. it is very normal for baby of such an age to refuse dental cleansing. the best way to cleanse their teeth are
1. TELL-SHOW-DO technique. that is first you tell the baby about tooth brush and paste- Do it Yourself on your teeth and show it to her and then try to repeat the things with baby.
2. there are miniture brushes head mounted on a finger sleeve which can be worn by mother and can be used by mother to cleanse her baby's teeth
3. Still if baby doesn't give way, you can soak a clean cloth or cotton in a warm saline water and rub it against the teeth and gingiva
of the baby
At last still it is really difficult sometimes for some baby to teach them brushing. be patient, it generally happens and can take another 6 to 12 months
