Cleaning Or Brushing Your Child’s Teeth Helps Remove The Bacteria That Cause Decay.


Start to clean your baby’s teeth as soon as the first tooth comes through. Use a wet cloth or a small children’s toothbrush with water.


From 18 months to six years of age, use a small pea-sized amount of children’s low-fluoride toothpaste on a small, soft toothbrush.


At six years of age children can use a pea-sized amount of standard fluoride toothpaste.


Flossing helps remove bacteria, plaque, and food from between your teeth, and it reduces the likelihood of tooth decay and gum disease. Along with regular brushing and flossing, make sure you also schedule regular dental cleanings at least twice a year.


Brush teeth and along the gum line twice a day; in the morning and at night before bed.


Children will need an adult to help them brush their teeth until they can do it well by themselves (usually about eight years of age).


The American Dental Association recommends replacing toothbrushes every three months. It’s around this time that bristles begin to break down and become less effective at cleaning your teeth. Germs are another factor. While we might not like to think about it, germs build up on our toothbrushes over time.
