This is our nightly teeth brushing routine. Ellie is 9 months old and is now able to tolerate teeth brushing and its all because she gets a treat right after she is done. Not only does she sit still long enough for me to do it, she gets excited in anticipation.
I began brushing her teeth about two months ago when the last of her baby teeth came out. I use an Oral-B baby toothbrush (the bristles are soft and the head is small) and Virbac C.E.T. Enzymatic Toothpaste in Poultry Flavor. She hated the process and would scurry away when I called her into the bathroom with me. Two months later, she follows me into the bathroom and waits for me to begin.
