Children's teeth

Kids with good teeth grow up to be adults with good teeth. If you teach your children how to brush and floss and take them to the dentist twice a year, they'll have strong, healthy teeth.

Even though your child's first teeth or baby teeth will fall out and permanent teeth will grow in, they are just as important to keep clean. Baby teeth hold places in your child's mouth so permanent teeth can grow in correctly.

Small Children
Your children need to learn good dental care from you. Set a good example by brushing and flossing your teeth with them. Help them brush and floss until they're 7 or 8 years old and can do it themselves. Here are some helpful hints.

  • Use a child-sized, soft toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of toothpaste with fluoride.
  • Follow brushing basics for your child, but be extra gentle.
  • Make sure you brush your child's teeth for two minutes.
  • Make sure your child rinses and spits out the toothpaste. Don't let them swallow it.
  • Don't forget to floss.

Make sure your child keeps these good habits. Don't let them drink too many cooldrinks or sugary drinks - "too many" means more than one a day. Avoid giving your child cooldrink as a regular drink with meals - it should be an occasional treat. Drinking lots of cooldrink is bad for your child's teeth and growth.
