Teach Your Child How to Brush

Children are usually ready to learn how to brush their teeth by age 2 or 3. But you still must brush any spots missed by the child. Usually children don’t have the coordination to do it by themselves until age 7.

Make brushing a daily routine, but keep it enjoyable. For example, brush with your child or let him or her use a colorful toothbrush.
