Dental Care Tips
Did you know that by setting a good example from the beginning, you can help create a healthy routine for your child’s future?
As a parent you play an active part in your child’s oral wellbeing and are the ultimate role model for their dietary and oral hygiene habits. We recommend working with your child from an early age to establish healthy eating habits and good oral hygiene techniques. Parents will need to help until they feel confident that their child can reach all the tricky spots and brush with confidence.
Tips for Top Brushing
- Make brushing time fun! To help your child enjoy brushing their teeth, why not turn on their favorite song. If they start brushing from the very beginning of the song to the end, it will help make the time go much faster and they will get their 2 minutes of brushing done in no time!
- If your child is too tired to brush their teeth before bedtime, choose another time to brush. We recommend brushing at least one each day.
- If your child does not like the taste of their toothpaste, try a few different brands. Make sure they contain fluoride.
After brushing take a few minutes to inspect your child’s teeth. Make sure they have reached all of the tricky spots and have paid attention to molars in the back. If you notice any white spots, dark spots or even a hole in a tooth these should be checked by a Dentist.
