As our kids grow, we as parents need to teach them how to maintain a good dental health to avoid tooth decay. Even at a tender age, you should brush your children’s teeth using fluoridated toothpaste. You could smear it into a white clean cloth and gently wipe over the growing teeth, rinse the cloth afterwards with clean water and once again wipe over her teeth using it At 2 years, you should start showing your child on how to brush their teeth on their own, you could create a schedule to teach them on how to do it or preferably brush yours as you also let her brush hers at the same time as she imitates you.
Please chose for them a toothbrush with soft bristles and that are made of a round-headed or polished material so you could avoid harming your baby’s tender gums. When still young, let them know the benefits of brushing their teeth after every meal. l remember at the age 5 my mum would put it as a “threat” for us to brush our teeth, she would say,” everyone go brush your teeth, or I will call Ken and tell him to come and remove all your teeth, and you know for sure you will never eat anything, you will only take drinks for ever in your life”.
This made us to make it a routine so as not to lose our teeth. My advice to you is to make your kids enjoy brushing their teeth it should sound like a chore. Choose the best toothpaste for your kids, always look for the one that contains fluoride and has an appealing taste. taste.
Fluoride prevents tooth decay in both kids and adults. As children grow up, always go with them to a dentist for check up.lt should be twice or once in a month depending on your schedule.
