When to teach a child to a toothbrush, preschoolers

Recently in the kindergarten I heard a conversation between two mothers that their boys brush their teeth once a week. We regularly brush our teeth in the morning and in the evening from three years old. Hearing a new opinion for me about the health of the child, I immediately began to analyze what to do right?
Dental situation

Unfortunately, I did not get to the beginning of the conversation and I do not know what these mothers are guided by adopting such a line of conduct. But as an alternative to brushing their teeth, they give the children a gnaw of apples. It has long been heard from dentists that this is a unique product for teeth – and it cleans them of plaque, and maintains acid-base balance.

But on the other hand, the apple doesn’t clean out the remnants of food. On the contrary, even adds. Honestly, I sometimes, when I stay up late at work, try to eat an apple so that I don’t crawl into the bathroom to clean my teeth and go to bed right away. And I will not say that in the morning I feel comfortable.

In addition, my child is difficult to persuade to eat an apple. On the proposal for an apple, I always get a counter question, and what else is there? And always the daughter prefers to eat a banana or an orange.

I also remembered how in the summer we left for the dacha and forgot the children’s toothbrush. There was nowhere to buy, so we generously fed the child with apples. And I will tell you, the patina eventually formed. Scrubbed only with a brush.

I do not know that it saves us, regular brushing of teeth from an early age or still a genetic predisposition, but the child still has not a single spot on the teeth (pah-pah-pah). I try not to indulge her with candies, especially caramel.

I remember myself at this age. I in the kindergarten dentist pulled out four front teeth, as they were already useless. Yes, and my daughter in the garden a lot of kids, whose front upper teeth are just black. Sorry, I do not know whether they brush their teeth or not.


And why is it worth cleaning?

But I calmed myself with such reflections on the correctness of my approach to the hygiene of a child’s mouth:

1. It is better to teach to brush your teeth from an early age, controlling the process, correcting the child. Then by the right time he will have well-developed skills.

2. Regular brushing is a kind of ritual. The sooner he becomes a habit, the easier it is for the child to live with him.

3. A child learns to care for himself independently – an important educational moment.

4. Healthy milk teeth are a guarantee of healthy molars. And the situation with bad indigenous people is fraught with, I think, it is not worth telling. Therefore, it is better not to risk it.

And at what age did you make friends with a brush?
