Looking after your children’s teeth is really important to prevent tooth decay. The best ways to look after your child’s teeth are:
- Brush teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
- Avoid sugary snacks and sugar sweetened drinks – the only safe drinks for teeth are milk and water
- Take your child to the dentist every six months
You can start brushing your baby’s teeth as soon as they start to come through. Use a baby toothbrush with a tiny smear of fluoride toothpaste.
Don’t worry if you don’t manage to brush much at first. The important thing is to get your baby used to brushing their teeth as part of their daily routine. You can help by setting a good example and letting them see you brushing your own teeth.
The NHS website has some useful tips for toothbrushing and looking after your children’s teeth.
