How can I provide the best care for my child’s oral health?

To help your child protect his/her teeth and gums and reduce the risk of tooth decay, here are some simple tips you can teach them:

  • Help your child to brush his/her teeth until they are eight years old. Brush twice a day; in the morning and before bed with an appropriate fluoride toothpaste and a soft bristle toothbrush!
  • When your child starts to brush on their own, check to see that they have removed all of the sticky film build up on the teeth
  • Look in your child’s mouth often to check for any early signs of tooth decay
  • Eat a well-balanced diet that includes a wide variety of nutritious foods, limiting starchy or sugary foods especially between meals as they are the main cause of tooth decay.
  • Offer your child tap water to ensure they get enough fluoride content to help protect their teeth
  • Make sure to take your child to the dentist regularly.
