Brush from the very first tooth
Already when the first tooth begins to emerge it is time to start brushing. Good toothbrushing routines from the beginning is the first step to healthy teeth in the future. Brush twice a day, morning and evening.
Children need help to brush until the age of 10. A small child does not have the manual skills to brush properly and cannot see the consequences of careless brushing.
When brushing is difficult
All children sometimes refuse to brush their teeth. Try to create a positive atmosphere around the brushing routine – perhaps using a song or story could make it more fun?
Toothbrushing does not necessarily need to take place in the bathroom. You could just as well brush in bed or on the changing table – let the child lie on its back with the head nearest to you. The little older child can sit in your lap, leaning the head on your arm.
Go to bed with clean teeth
A good rule is to always go to bed with clean teeth. During the night, there is less saliva in the mouth, which makes the teeth more vulnerable to caries.
Let the teeth rest
Let the teeth rest – avoid eating between meals. If the child is thirsty between meals or at night time, serve water.
In case of an accident
If the child hurts a tooth and there is a lot of bleeding, or if the tooth is chipped, loose or pushed into the jaw, contact your dentist for advice. If a milk tooth is knocked out, never put it back.
All TePe Toothbrushes are efficient, durable, and user-friendly. The filaments have rounded ends providing effective and gentle cleaning; the ergonomically designed handles are made of polypropylene which is environmentally safe. Cleaning your teeth in the same order every day reduces the risk that you will forget some tooth surfaces. A good rule is to start brushing where your problem areas are. Ask your dentist or dental hygienist for advice.
