Teaching Kids About Their Teeth

Teaching your kids the right way to take care of their smile is very important. Dr. Easton would be glad to give both you & your child the oral hygiene education you need to keep you clean & cavity-free. Begin daily brushing as soon as the child’s first tooth comes in. Parents can use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste after the child is old enough to not swallow it. By age 4 or 5, children should be able to brush their own teeth twice a day with supervision. This supervision should continue until about age 7, in order to make sure they are doing a thorough job. However, each child’s progress will be different. Flossing removes plaque from between the teeth, where a toothbrush can’t reach. Flossing should begin when any two teeth touch. Contrary to the most recent news media suggestions, flossing is still important.  You may wish to floss the child’s teeth until he or she can do it alone. Don’t forget behind the four teeth in the back!

These oral hygiene tips are important, especially for your kids. By educating them at a younger age, they’ll have the correct knowledge to provide them with a lifetime of excellent dental health!
