Making Brushing and Flossing fun for kids!
Brushing Kid’s Teeth
Keeping kid’s teeth clean and healthy is extremely important for their overall health and development. At Heritage Dental Group, our team tries their best to demonstrate kids and parents how to brush and floss properly to keep their smile healthy. We know how important a great smile is for a child’s confidence and development. We are passionate about educating children from an early age about the advantages of looking after their teeth and gums. Our Dentists know how to ease children in to dental procedures so that they do not develop phobias that can severely impact a child’s future dental and general health.
Put your kid’s favourite music on for 2-3 minutes while they are brushing. Brush twice a day using soft bristle brush with gentle circular strokes.
Replace toothbrush or toothbrush head every three months.
Children should floss their teeth as soon as they have two teeth that are in contact with each other, floss and supervise kids till they are about 10-year-old.
Help your child brush their teeth from when they get their first teeth to the age of 7-9 years old. Always supervise to make sure they are brushing properly.

To develop healthy teeth, make sure your child has a healthy balanced diet avoiding or minimising the intake of sweet, sticky and acidic foods. Choose fresh fruits, veg sticks and use fluoridated tap water.
Baby teeth are an important part of kid’s overall development. Baby teeth help with eating, speaking clearly and holding a space for permanent teeth to come through. Brush gently twice a day, choose healthy balanced diet and avoid putting sweet drinks in milk bottles or Sippy cups. Remember to visit the dentist for their first dental check up.
Contact the dentist if your child has swollen, red gums, toothache, abscess or pus coming from gums, bad taste or loose teeth
