Ten Ways to protect your childs teeth ...             healthy teeth.JPG

1. Supervise under eights with tooth brushing.
2. If they want to do it themselves, let them, but still do a final brush for them when they’ve finished.
3. Brush with fluoride toothpaste twice a day.  Children over six can use an adult-strength formula
4. Don’t let them rinse after brushing
5. Floss teeth once two teeth are touching
6. Only give juice or fizzy drinks with meals or snacks. Stick to water at other times.
7. Use a straw for fizzy drinks.
8. Encourage your children to consume drinks quickly, rather than sipping them over a long period.
9. Limit sweet-eating to straight after meals, when the extra saliva created by chewing will help to protect the teeth.
10. Take your child to the dentist regularly. Ask your dentist about fissure sealing
