  • Consider taking your baby to the dentist as early as age 3. This helps them get used to the environment and sounds. 
  • Start gently brushing your child's teeth as soon as they are out with a suitable toothpaste and brush. 
  • Make him sit on your lap and use some toothpaste with a fluoride content suitable for his age on a baby toothbrush. 
  • Let your baby look while you brush your teeth so he can see how you are doing it. 
  • To help him, stay behind him and gently tilt his head backwards. Look in the mirror so your child can see while you brush your teeth. 
  • Brush in small circles covering all the surface of the teeth. 
  • When growing up, try to brush twice a day. 
  • Keep an eye on brushing until your child is about 7-8 years old. 
  • Consult your child's dentist for advice on how to keep your child's teeth clean and healthy.
