Dental Hygiene in Toddlers should start once those baby teeth start coming out. Getting kids to brush their teeth can be a struggle. You, as a parent, need to have a lot of patience and the correct tools for the job.
Healthy teeth are important to your child’s overall health. They help your child eat and talk. Strong oral care helps set good dental habits as your child grows. Poor oral care can lead to infection, disease, or other teeth problems.
Research has shown time and time again that our health habits develop very early in life. Not only that, but once habits are ingrained they’re exceedingly difficult to change. So, in order to give our tots the best possible shot at growing into happy healthy adults with happy healthy mouths, we’ve got to start young!
Brush your child’s teeth with water at least twice a day. Add a small dab of toothpaste that doesn’t have fluoride in it. This type of toothpaste is safe for your child to swallow. Once the child is old enough to spit out the toothpaste, it can be switched to one that has fluoride. Only use a small amount. Teach them to spread it among their teeth, gums, and tongue. Have your doctor or dentist show you the right way to brush your child’s teeth.
