It’s important for children to be taught on the proper way to take care of their teeth as early as when their primary teeth start growing. Their teeth may not be permanent yet during these early ages, but tooth decay can still be a threat.
There are special toothbrushes made specifically for young children that you can use when your child’s baby teeth start growing. These toothbrushes have soft, small heads and rounded bristles so brushing isn’t rough on the young one.
You’ll have to brush your child’s teeth yourself if they’re under 8 years of age, remember to be gentle and make sure all the surfaces are being cleaned. You can also have them get used to regular dentist visits so they won’t have to be anxious about going to a dentists’ office in their later years.
For East St. Kilda locals, you may visit our clinic The Dental Company for regular dental care checks for your children.
