Brushing is key in maintaining healthy teeth – not only does it remove remnants of food but dental plaque as well. When we eat, the bacteria in plaque use the sugars in food to produce acids that eat away at tooth enamel. It causes tooth decay and gum disease if not removed regularly through brushing and flossing.

Our hygienists are specially trained to teach children how to brush their teeth effectively. We highly recommend to:

  • Brush at least twice a day – after breakfast and before bedtime;

    • Starting at birth, clean your child's gums with a soft infant toothbrush or cloth and water. 

    • As soon as your child's teeth erupt, use a tiny smear of fluoridated toothpaste on a soft, age-appropriate sized toothbrush.

    • For children aged 3-6 use a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste.

  • Brush all the teeth, not just the front ones, spending at least 2 minutes brushing;​​

  • Assist your child with brushing until they are at least 8 years old.  You may allow them to brush on their own first but always follow up with a good brushing by Mom or Dad.

Help your kids brush their teeth for TWO MINUTES, TWICE A DAY!-- for healthier teeth, good breath, fewer cavities, and to avoid painful dental problems.

Two Minutes,
Twice a Day!
