Everyday tooth brushing should also be an integral part of children’s life. The habit of tooth brushing should also start when the first tooth appears in your children’s mouth.
Improving Dental Care For Kids in Geelong
Tooth brushing may not be a favourite thing for your child, but try choosing a tooth paste and tooth brush that your child will like and want to use.
The tooth paste should contain fluoride and also be child friendly with colours and flavours that appeal to kids.
This simple children dental care explanation by our children dentist can also be used for any child on how to brush their teeth.
- Children should hold the toothbrush at 45- degree angle against the gums
- Move the brush back and forth and in small circles gently, over the front, backs and top of the teeth
- Make sure that the child doesn’t scrub hard along the gum line as this can irritate the gums
It is also important for the children to maintain a good dental hygiene by brushing the teeth from front to the back as well. If possible, flossing should be started at an early childhood.
