Let's go brush your teeth, baby!

The appearance of the first tooth should be expected in the range from 6 to 12 months. Does this mean that from the moment of its eruption, you need to start learning?

You decide! Only when choosing the time to start classes, remember that the earlier a child gets used to caring for his teeth, the better: the resulting skill will be stronger.

Paste. They should start using no sooner than the baby celebrates its first birthday.

Before that, brush the fingertip needs to be moistened with water.

There are special requirements for the composition of children’s pastes, because the kids swallow them. For example, R.O.C.S. baby contains linden extract that relieves inflammation; natural sweetener xylitol, which inhibits the activity of microorganisms that cause caries. And possible allergens (aromatic fragrances, sodium lauryl sulfate) are excluded from the composition of the product.

Other pasta manufacturers, Colgate, Oral B and Lacalut, adhere to the same safety principles.

Toothpastes for children under 4 years old do not contain fluoride. Although this element is very important for the protection of teeth and the ripening of enamel, getting it, in addition to food, is also dangerous for kids because of the risk of overdose.

ATTENTION! Be careful, a single portion of pasta should not exceed the size of a pea.

Brushes. For the first lessons on brushing your teeth, you will need a fingertip brush.

Then, with 1.5 years, teach your baby to use a regular brush. It should have a small head, a soft bristle and a comfortable handle.

Let's go brush your teeth, baby!

Be patient, not all kids master tooth brushing with pleasure. If your child is one of them, play with him and things will get better!

That’s what you can offer your baby from 1 to 3 years.

“We drive into the garage” Imagine that a toothbrush is a machine that drives into the garage, that is, your mouth, and “parks” there. Mom can do the “parking” herself or will direct the baby’s handle with a brush in the right direction.

“Sweeping” The task is to “clean up” in the mouth. You can look at the teeth in the mirror, to see where the “garbage” is hidden.

ATTENTION! From the age of 3, the baby must hold the brush himself.

  • Brush movements will be different for each group of teeth:
  • for the front – vertical, in the direction from the gum down;
  • behind the cheeks along the external line of the teeth – circular with closed teeth; from within, sweeping;
  • we clean the chewing surface with horizontal movements back and forth.
  • The cleaning time also matters. It should take about 1 minute and equal to 5-6 movements for each section that covers the bristles of the brush.
  • Brush your teeth 2 times a day: after breakfast and dinner.
  • The toothbrush will serve you for about 3 months, after which it needs to be replaced.
  • If you notice that a bloom has appeared on the baby’s teeth that cannot be cleaned, and there are also white or brown spots, you should rather see a doctor. And do not forget that the basis of all problems with teeth that appear after their eruption is still thoughtless care and bad eating habits, when a child, for example, eats a lot of sweet and sticky or drinks sweet water for the night.
