    Get Your Toddler to Adopt a Regular Oral Health Routine

     teeth health smileYou may be on the verge of giving up on getting your toddler brush their teeth. Even the pros struggle to get these young children to brush their teeth.

    Key takeaways:

    • Even though they eventually fall off, baby teeth are important for function and in guiding the permanent teeth into their positions.
    • Your children should brush with a proper toothbrush right after the first tooth appears to prevent oral health problems.
    • Tooth brushing time should be made fun to ensure that baby complies with brushing their teeth at least twice every day. Kid toothpaste that contains fluoride should be used for brushing.

    While you should brush twice a day, doing it before bed is most important, because while your tot is lying (generally) still, bacteria have a chance to grow undisturbed. And any sugar left in the mouth, from milk or food, gives bacteria an even better environment in which to grow.
