Tips for your children to follow during brushing

A tooth should be cleaned when it erupted. By starting early, a child becomes accustomed to proper oral hygiene. A damp cloth wrapped around the finger of the parent can replace the toothbrush until at least four teeth fall out.
Tips to follow during brushing

    * Choose a small toothbrush with soft bristles. In the wetting in hot water will soften the bristles even more.
    * Until the age of three, you just use toothpaste for children containing fluoride. Young children may swallow the paste, and swallow a large amount of fluoride can cause dental fluorosis on adult teeth. There are also toothpastes are not recommended for children under 6 years, we must read the manufacturer's label.
    * You must brush the teeth of a child at least twice a day, the morning after breakfast and before bedtime. Brushing should last two minutes, putting more emphasis on the back molars, because these are the teeth most likely to decay.
    * You must change the toothbrush every three months, or sooner if it is worn. A toothbrush should not be shared with other children.
    * You must floss as soon as two adjacent teeth appear in the mouth.
    * Talk to the dentist the opportunity to put sealants on primary molars to protect them from decay.

Age children should brush their teeth by themselves
Most children lack the ability to brush their teeth before the age of 6-7 years. In the meantime, the best way to teach brushing and flossing teeth is to lead by example. This will allow the child to observe the parent and to learn appropriate oral hygiene methods.

Leading by example also allows parents to maintain their own oral hygiene. By reducing the amount of bacteria in the mouths of parents, the transfer of harmful bacteria between parents and children is also reduced.

Generally mouthwash should not be used by young children who have not yet developed the ability to rinse and spit. They learn this around the age of six.

It must be remembered that mouthwash does not replace brushing or flossing. A mouthwash does not clean teeth.
