Teeth Brushing

This strategy is about taking a pro-active approach to your child's dental hygiene by introducing teeth brushing as a daily habit before your child turns two.

Research has found that when teeth brushing starts after the age of two, the likelihood of cavities developing, later on, is much higher.

The earlier you start, the more likely you are able to help establish teeth brushing as part of your child's daily routine, forming the practice of teeth brushing as a habit!
