How to teach brushing teeth?

advice in category: junior

It’s good to accustom your baby to brush its teeth regularly and correctly from early babyhood. Choose a toothbrush and toothpaste suitable for the baby’s age. A toothbrush for little babies is soft, with a small head and an easy grip. Older children can brush their teeth with a medium toothbrush. An additional encouragement to brush teeth is a variety of types and colours of toothbrushes.

Toothpastes for the youngest children (the age group is marked on the packaging) contain less fluoride than those for adults and have a wide choice of flavours so that every baby can pick its favourite. You should change the toothbrush every 2-3 months, or more often if the bristles are deformed. Your baby should brush its teeth at least twice a day, initially with your supervision and help.
