Tips for Parents:
- Brush for two minutes a day, twice a day
Children must brush their teeth twice a day. It’s important to form this habit and help motivate your child. A fun game or a reward chart is useful for encouraging your child.
- Avoid Sugar as much as possible!
It’s a good idea to make healthy snacks appetising. Avoid fizzy drinks, sugary juices and sweets at home and in lunchboxes.
- Increase dairy intake
Research has proven that full fat products such as whole milk and cheese are great for strengthening your child’s teeth.
- Brush Correctly
Make sure that you focus on the back teeth as well as brushing the front teeth. Use a soft toothbrush in circular motions. An egg timer is useful to keep children motivated.
- Six monthly Check-ups with the Dentist
Detecting tooth decay and cavities early is key to avoiding costly and painful dental treatment. Regular dental check-ups is important to ensure that your child’s dental development is progressing at a normal rate. Regular dental exams also ensures that your child gets the timing of an orthodontic consultation correct if necessary.
