Children's Dentistry

1How do I take care of my babies teeth?

Babies grow teeth anywhere between 3-7 months. If your babies teeth haven’t come through yet, it’s still important to wipe gums gently with a clean, warm cloth after every feed which will remove any residue and keep your babies gums clean.

Once your babies first teeth begin to come through you can clean them after feeds again gently with a warm wet cloth. At around the 18 month mark your child can start to use a small amount of toothpaste to brush their teeth. Getting your children into good habits and brushing twice a day will help avoid oral issues in the future.

2How to teach children to brush their teeth?

Children will often avoid brushing teeth for a few different reasons, beginning anything new is typically uncomfortable but add the taste of toothpaste in the mix which is typically the biggest hurdle. The feeling of brushing with a toothbrush is also known to be a bit of a pain and lastly it’s not the most fun thing to do, that’s why we have come up with some tips to help you get your children in the best habits.

Making brushing teeth an enjoyable experience should be accompanied initially with a game or perhaps an incentive both in the morning and after dinner.

Using copycat as a game to show them how easy it is, the benefits of getting rid of the food between your teeth and fresh breath are benefits you can discuss as advantages to consistent brushing.

You could also give them a 10 out of 10 rating for how well they have brushed their teeth to gamify the process and encourage them to do a good job.

This will result in them wanting to get a 10 out of 10 which directly helps them get into good teeth brushing habits and makes every childrens dentist appointment a fun experience.
