When To Begin Brushing

Once your child’s teeth begin erupting, you can begin cleaning them by wiping them with a moist washcloth. As your child gets more teeth, you can begin to use a soft child’s toothbrush. You should use just a pea-sized amount of toothpaste until your child is able to spit it out (too much fluoride can stain their teeth).

For most toddlers, getting them to brush their teeth can be quite a challenge. Some suggestions for making tooth brushing less of a battle can include:

  • Let your child brush your teeth at the same time.
  • Let your child pick out a few toothbrushes with his favorite characters and giving him a choice of which one he wants to use each time (this will give him some feeling of control over the situation).
  • Deje que su niño a cepillarse sus propios dientes primero (you will likely have tohelp out”).
  • Get your child some children’s books about tooth brushing.
  • Todos tienen que cepillarse los dientes al mismo tiempo.

Ayudar a su hijo a entender la importancia del cepillado, a veces puede ser divertido y útil para hacerles comer o beber algo que se "mancha“ sus dientes temporalmente y luego ellos limpiar cepillo.

It can also be a good idea to create atooth brushing routine”. Y se adhieren a la misma rutina cada día.
