Toothbrushing tips for children

A regular dental check-up is important because they help keep your teeth and gums healthy. You should have a regular dental visit at least every 6 months or as recommended by your dental professional.

Always use a fluoride toothpaste to help prevent and control tooth decay.

Children aged up to 3 years

•    Start brushing your baby's teeth as soon as their first milk tooth appears
•    Parents or carers should supervise
•    Brush teeth twice each day for at least 2 minutes 
•    Use a fluoride toothpaste that contains no less than 1,000ppm of fluoride
•    Brush last thing before bed and after breakfast
•    Use just a smear of toothpaste
•    Don't eat or lick toothpaste from the tube.

In addition, for children aged 3 to 6 years

•    Brushing should still be supervised 
•    Use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste.
•    Spit after brushing and don't rinse, as that will remove some or all of the fluoride
