Healthy Dental Routine

Want to set your child up with good oral hygiene habits for life? Young children learn best by imitation. Brushing together can help make brushing a fun part of your child’s daily routine.

Education is key…

Children’s teeth play an essential role in who they are as individuals. It is essential that they are looked after gently and carefully. By following the right dental routine, you can help prevent teeth and gum problems.

Brushing For Children…

As your child grows, you can start to introduce a soft children’s toothbrush to their routine. From around 2 to 6 years of age we recommend using a low fluoride based toothpaste. Once they switch to fluoride toothpaste, we recommend using a very small amount (approximately half the size of a pea). This is the case as most children will swallow a small amount. Children’s Toothpastes are specially formulated and have reduced levels of fluoride, which effectively protect and strengthen your child’s teeth.

Brushing For Babies…

When your child’s teeth begin to appear, you can start cleaning them with a soft, damp cloth. Wipe gently over the teeth and gums to remove any milk residue.
