Caring for a child’s teeth is just as much important as caring for adult teeth. Many children suffer from yellow, rotten cavities, and this causes them to have bad breath and is also extremely painful for the child. Young children and older children should learn good teeth-brushing habits, and this article will teach parents, especially first time parents, on how to educate their kids on brushing their teeth.


Step One

Every morning, afternoon, and night, apply a small amount of toothpaste onto your child's toothbrush. If your child is below 2 years of age, consider using non-fluoride toothpaste, as fluoride can be upsetting to little tummies. However, children above 2 years can use fluoride toothpaste, but only a pea-sized amount.


Step Two

Teach your child how to use his/her toothbrush. Show him/her a few times, and then let him/her try it himself/herself. If your child is an infant, then do his/her brushing for him/her. However, toddlers and older children should start learning how to brush their own teeth.


Step Three

Be a good role model. Kids learn from their parents. Brush your teeth correctly three times a day, and this will teach your child to do the same.


Step Four

If your child already brushed his/her teeth, but did a bad job, then make him/her do it again.
