Making sure your child looks after their teeth

24th February 2018

Good dental habits can be instilled at an early age, leading to healthy teeth for life.

Key takeaways:

– Encourage a fun, regular oral care routine by letting them choose their own toothbrush and brushing their teeth to a favourite song.

– Teach your child about the damaging effects of sugar to help them understand why sugary snacks and drinks need to be limited.

– Take your child for regular checkups at the dentist from a very early age to ensure any problems are spotted early.

“Untreated dental care remains one of the most prevalent diseases affecting children”
