Children Oral Care Tips

Make Tooth Brushing a Good Habit!

Your child’s first year is the phase during which their first teeth will come through the gums, around six to eight months of age. These first milk teeth have thinner enamel than permanent teeth and can be more susceptible to decay.

Children of this age group should not be given bottles of juice or other sugary drinks between meals and at night, to ensure that their milk teeth are protected from damage.

Ensuring that good tooth brushing habits are established before a child reaches the age of one can significantly improve a child’s dental health at the toddler ages of three and five. It is therefore important to start brushing once the very first tooth appears.

Tooth brushing can be made fun and interesting for infants whilst the parent brushes their teeth. The Jordan 0-2 baby toothbrush has been designed with just this in mind.

Sailva also serves to protect teeth, but less saliva is produced during the night and protection is therefore reduced. Having a bottle filled with anything other than water by the children’s bed at night is not a good idea.
