Taking care of your children’s teeth is very important to create a habit of caring for their teeth. We want them to have healthy, beautiful smiles for a lifetime.

How long should my child brush? Just like an adult, brushing for two minutes twice a day is the best for maintaining a healthy smile. Use a child’s soft-bristle toothbrush. Small circular motions are best to clean each surface of the tooth.

What about flossing my child’s teeth? Flossing will help reduce the build-up of plaque and the occurrence of decay between teeth. An added benefit of flossing at an early age is your child will get used to the feeling of the floss. Floss now comes in assorted flavors your child might like.

Set a great example for your children – brush and floss with them!
