Brushing

Brushing is key in maintaining healthy teeth – not only does it remove remnants of food, but dental plaque as well. Dental plaque is comprised of bacteria and metabolic waste products. The bacteria multiply rapidly and form a sticky mass that adhere to the teeth and produce aggressive acid. This acid attacks the enamel of initiates the decaying process.

Our hygienists are specially trained to teach children how to brush their teeth effectively. We highly recommend to:

  • Brush at least twice a day – after breakfast and before bedtime
  • Brush all the teeth, not just the front ones and spend at least 2 or 3 minutes brushing using age appropriate fluoride toothpaste
  • Visit our tooth brushing school in order to tailor your brushing techniques to your child’s particular needs
