If she won't let you brush her teeth try using a little toothpaste on the wash cloth. It is easier than doing it with a toothbrush if the baby is uncooperative. I would have the ped look at the tooth too the next time you take her. Some folks say a baby should be taken to the dentist by his or her first birthday, but my dentist, who does treat children claims that it is much better to wait until they are at least close to three years old because they are more cooperative and have a much more positive view of the dentist. We started taking all three of ours when they were around three or four and none of them has had a problem. All of them also either nursed or fed to sleep until they were between 1 1/2 and 2 years old. We did clean their teeth daily though from the time they were about six months old. And, our teenagers have never minded going to the dentist. Our seven year old daughter loves to go.
