Children’s food contain a lot of sugar, so it is suggested to rinse the mouth and clean the teeth after consumption.
Change the toothbrush every three months or as soon as the bristles are frayed or bent by wear
Rinse the toothbrush after each use and let it air dry.
Since bacteria can lodge at the bottom of the toothbrush between the bristles, it is recommended to change it after a high fever or contagious disease.
The supervision of brushing your child’s teeth is desired until age 8, the age at which he will have better dexterity. Despite good supervision, it is essential that you complete the brushing. It is also very important to make sure your child does not swallow fluoride toothpaste to prevent dental fluorosis.
All fluoride products (toothpaste, mouthwash and gels) should not be within your child’s reach and stored in a safe place.
