What are the best ways to care for my child’s teeth?

mother helping her young daughter brush her teethPreventive dental care is a cornerstone of our Melbourne practice. Here are some tips to help care for your child's teeth to maintain their oral health.

  • We recommend that an adult brush your child’s teeth twice a day; in the morning and right before bed
  • Reduce sugary drinks and snacks throughout the day
  • As soon as your child is able to spit out toothpaste, we recommend switching to fluoridated toothpaste
  • Do not allow your child to sleep with a bottle containing milk, formula, or any other drink (with the exception of plain water)
  • Bring your child to regular dental checkups to help get them acclimated to the dental office and to ensure that any problems are caught early
