How Do I Help My Children Care for Their Teeth and Prevent Cavities?

Teaching your child proper oral care at a young age is an investment in his or her health that will pay lifelong dividends. You can start by setting an example; taking good care of your own teeth sends a message that oral health is something to be valued. And anything that makes taking care of teeth fun, like brushing along with your child or letting them choose their own toothbrush, encourages proper oral care.

To help your children protect their teeth and gums and greatly reduce their risk of getting cavities, teach them to follow these simple steps:

  • Brush twice a day to remove plaque-the sticky film on teeth that's the main cause of tooth decay.
  • Floss daily to remove plaque from between your teeth and under the gumline, before it can harden into tartar. Once tartar has formed, it can only be removed by a professional cleaning.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet that limits starchy or sugary foods, which produce plaque acids that cause tooth decay. When you do eat these foods, try to eat them with your meal instead of as a snack-the extra saliva produced during a meal helps rinse food from the mouth.
  • Make sure that your children's drinking water is fluoridated. If your water supply; municipal, well or bottled does not contain fluoride, your dentist or paediatrician may prescribe daily fluoride supplements.
  • Take your child to the dentist for regular checkups.

FAQ

What is Fluoride and How Do I Know if My Child is Getting the Right Amount?

Fluoride is one of the best ways to help prevent tooth decay. A naturally occurring mineral, fluoride combines with the tooth's enamel to strengthen it. In many municipal water supplies, the right amount of fluoride is added for proper tooth development. To find out whether your water contains fluoride, and how much, call your local water district. If your water supply does not contain any (or enough) fluoride, your child's paediatrician or dentist may suggest using fluoride drops or a mouthrinse in addition to a fluoride toothpaste.

How Important is Diet to My Child's Oral Health?

A balanced diet is necessary for your child to develop strong, decay-resistant teeth. In addition to a full range of vitamins and minerals, a child's diet should include plenty of calcium, phosphorus, and proper levels of fluoride.

If fluoride is your child's greatest protection against tooth decay, then frequent snacking may be the biggest enemy. The sugars and starches found in many foods and snacks like cookies, candies, dried fruit, soft drinks, pretzels and potato chips combine with plaque on teeth to create acids. These acids attack the tooth enamel and may lead to cavities.

Each "plaque attack" can last up to 20 minutes after a meal or snack has been finished. Even a little nibble can create plaque acids. So it's best to limit snacking between meals.

When Should My Child Begin Flossing?

Because flossing removes food particles and plaque between teeth that brushing misses, you should floss for your children beginning at age 4. By the time they reach age 8, most kids can begin flossing for themselves.

What are Dental Sealants and How Do I Know if My Child Needs Them?

A dental sealant creates a highly-effective barrier against decay. Sealants are thin plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of a child's permanent back teeth, where most cavities form. Applying a sealant is not painful and can be performed in one dental visit. Your dentist can tell you whether your child might benefit from a dental sealant.

Info Leaflet

Colgate Kids 0-3 Years Extra Soft Toothbrush has a small head, which makes it easy to brush all around the mouth, flexible grip and rounded handle that makes it comfortable to use.

It's very important teaching your child proper oral care at a young age, because:

  • Baby teeth have thinner and softer enamel than adult teeth.
  • Permanent teeth are at risk of acid erosion as soon as they appear in the mouth.
  • Enamel wear is irreversible.

Directions

How to use

Brush twice a day for 2 minutes with a toothbrush and toothpaste developed for your child's age. Brush in a circular motion, cleaning all tooth surfaces and gum lines.

What Brushing Techniques Can I Show My Child?

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

  • Use a pea-sized dab of toothpaste. Take care that your child does not swallow the toothpaste.
    Using a soft-bristled toothbrush, brush the inside surface of each tooth first, where plaque may accumulate most.
  • Brush gently back and forth.
  • Clean the outer surfaces of each tooth. Angle the brush along the outer gum line. Gently brush back and forth.
  • Brush the chewing surface of each tooth. Gently brush back and forth.
  • Use the tip of the brush to clean behind each front tooth, both top and bottom.

It's always fun to brush the tongue!

 

 

Warnings

Sensitive teeth may indicate an underlying problem that needs prompt care. If symptoms occur, see a dentist.
