Brushing Techniques

You may want to supervise your children until they get the hang of these simple steps:

  • Use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Take care that your child does not swallow the toothpaste (this is difficult with very young children so we recommend using a children’s toothpaste which contains lower levels of fluoride);
  • Using a soft-bristled toothbrush, brushing the inside surface of each tooth first as this is where plaque accumulates most. Brush gently back and forth;
  • BrushClean the outer surfaces of each tooth, angling the brush along the outer gum line. Gently brush back and forth;
  • Brush the chewing surface of each tooth;
  • Use the tip of the brush to clean behind each front tooth, both top and bottom;
  • It’s always fun to brush the tongue!
