Like most parents, I’m always keen to keep my children fit and healthy. We attend Dr’s appointments, eat healthy and exercise. But looking after children’s teeth is also vitally important. My children have been going to the dentist since they were aged 2. When I have a check up I take them with me so they get used to going and aren’t worried about what will happen.
How to look after your children’s oral health.
I’m sharing this handy guide on how best to care for your children’s teeth. As it’s always nice to have a checklist to remind you what you can do. Remember to always seek advice from your dentist or healthcare professional if you have any worries regarding your child’s health.

Make brushing teeth fun!
As a child I hated brushing my teeth. So as a parent I’ve always tried to keep tooth brushing fun. My children choose their own brushes, and tooth paste! You can often find character brushes in discount stores which are great for younger children. We have used brushing apps, and watched You Tube videos while brushing teeth as a good way to time how long we are brushing for! Anything to keep the children keen to brush! I’m hoping good habits will last a life time!
