Protect Teeth from an Early Age, and Tips You Should Not Ignore


1. Different toothbrushes should be chosen for children of different ages

0~1 year old

For children without teeth, moms and dads can use gauze, finger sleeves and warm water to clean the baby's gum, tongue and other parts every morning and evening, and no toothpaste shall be used.

1~3 years old

You can buy your baby a toothbrush! However, you need to help your baby brushing his/her teeth and get them interested in toothbrushing.

3~6 years old

This is the stage when parents help babies brush their teeth on their own. In this stage, it is still difficult for children to master and complete the complex actions of brushing, so parents shall help them brush their teeth correctly, and develop good brushing habits.

Over 6 years old

Children of this age can brush their teeth independently. Moms and dads need to urge them to develop the habit of brushing their teeth at least twice a day and gargle after meals.


2. Tips about the use of toothpaste

Time to use toothpaste:

It is recommended that your baby learn to gargle before using fluorine toothpaste. In general, one-and-a-half-year-old babies can gargle expertly after training.

Amount of toothpaste used:

For babies of 1~3 years old, the recommended amount of fluorine toothpaste is the size of one grain of rice; for babies over 3 years old, the recommended amount of fluorine toothpaste is the size of a pea.


3. Tips about the choosing of toothbrush

Frequency of toothbrush replacement:

In general, it is recommended to replace the toothbrush every 2~3 months. If your baby likes to chew the toothbrush and the bristle is easy to get worn out and turned over, the toothbrush shall be replaced more frequently.

Some may say that, for bristles, the softer, the better, but it is not true:

Hard bristles may hurt the baby's delicate gum; but soft bristles are not only lack of cleaning ability, but also easy to breed bacteria. Incidentally, silicone bristles have no cleaning effect and cannot remove the dental plaque, so it is not recommended.
