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 the children’s mouth.
Children Dentist and Dentistry for Kids
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 be child friendly with colours and flavours that appeal to kids.
A simple children dentistry explanation by the children dentist in Geelong can also be used for the 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 that the top front teeth and behind the bottom front teeth are brushed. If possible, flossing should be started at an early childhood.
