Start Early: Establishing Good Dental Habits for Preschoolers

It’s important to establish good dental habits in your child as early as possible. By making dental care a part of your child’s daily routine, you can help prevent cavities and other oral health issues. Here are some tips to get you started:

Start brushing as soon as the first tooth appears!

Use a soft-bristled brush and a tiny amount of fluoride toothpaste. Brush twice a day, in the morning and before bed!

Encourage your child to spit out the toothpaste, but don’t rinse!

Rinsing with water can wash away the fluoride and reduce its effectiveness.

Use floss or interdental brushes to clean between teeth!

This should be done once a day, as soon as your preschooler’s teeth start touching.

Avoid sugary drinks and snacks!

Limit your child’s intake of sugary drinks and snacks, especially between meals.

Schedule regular dental checkups!

Your preschooler should see a dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning.

By starting early and making dental care a part of your child’s routine, you can help set them up for a lifetime of good oral health.
