How to Care for Your Child’s Teeth

Back to posts

As soon as your child starts getting teeth it’s important to take care of them so that your child develops good oral hygiene habits from the start and that no nasty dental issues occur throughout their childhood.

Your child’s teeth are important to their health as well as aiding them with eating and talking, but explaining this to a child can be difficult. Children want to run and play, so may be reluctant to take time out of their day to brush their teeth. The best way to help your children take care of their teeth is to make it enjoyable for them and feel like less of a chore. Here are some ways you can encourage your children to take care of their teeth:

Create a dental hygiene calendar where your child gets a sticker every morning and evening for brushing their teeth

Let your child choose the colour and design/character on their own toothbrush

Let your child choose their favourite flavour of toothpaste

Read child friendly material about dental hygiene to make it fun

Reward children with a sticker, healthy treat or an hour of their favourite TV show

Arrange to do something your child enjoys after a trip to the dentist
