Brushing Your Toddler's Teeth

Brushing Your kid’s teeth

Its very important to take care of your kids teeth as soon as they erupts. Use toothbrush made of soft bristles and makes this softer by dipping it in to Luke warm water for 15 minutes before brushing. You can use a fluoride containing toothpaste initially as this has got ant cavity effect.  Your self-determined toddler can sometimes present a challenge when it comes to brushing her teeth. Try this: Sit on the floor cross-legged, placing your child on her back, resting herself on your leg. You are now looking down at her, while she is looking up at you. Let your child brush your teeth while you brush hers.

These four steps are the best and easiest ways to help you remember how to care for your mouth, teeth and gums:

  • Brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste for at least two minutes, especially first thing in the morning and before bedtime
  • Floss every day – usually at bedtime
  • Limit the number of times you eat snacks each day
  • Visit your dentist every six months for an oral exam and professional cleaning

How to BRUSH

  1. Place the toothbrush at a 45°angle along the gum line. Move the toothbrush in a back and forth motion, and repeat for each tooth.
  2. Brush the inside surface of each tooth, using the same back and forth technique.
  3. Brush the chewing surface (top) of each tooth.
  4. Use tip of brush to brush behind each tooth — front and back, top and bottom and up and down strokes.
  5. Be sure to brush your tongue to remove odor-causing bacteria.
