Make brushing more fun with Minions!

Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is the most ideal way to maintain a clean pearly white teeth! Did you know that teaching your kids how to properly clean their teeth can save them from tooth decay?  Yes, dearest!  It is very important to start oral care at an early age. Learning good oral hygiene habits at a young age is important for long-term oral health. Parents can teach their children how to brush and how to floss by taking simple steps.

When to Start Brushing?

DID YOU KNOW THAT? Good oral hygiene should begin as early as possible. An infant's mouth can be cleaned after each feeding. Begin by cradling the head with one hand while using your free hand to wipe the baby's mouth with a clean wet gauze, wet cloth or organic wipe. Then after the first tooth erupts, a 
child's teeth should be brushed with a soft bristle toothbrush.

General Brushing Tips

IMPORTANT! You need to use a soft-bristled toothbrush so as not to injure your kiddo. Brush an infant's teeth by wetting a soft-bristled, age-appropriate toothbrush with water. If fluoride toothpaste is considered before the child's first birthday, it is best to first ask a dentist or pediatrician.


Apply only less than a pea-sized amount for infant and toddler less than 2 years old and a pea-size amount (ages 2–5) to the toothbrush. Parents should brush the toddler's teeth in the bathroom while the child is watching the parent.

Children 6–9 years of age may be capable of brushing by themselves. Parents should inspect their child's teeth if they are unsure whether their child is missing certain areas in the mouth.

Encourage your child to brush at least twice a day, morning and night, with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Harder bristles may be too abrasive for young children.

Battery-powered toothbrushes can also be used to gently remove the sticky film, called plaque, from the teeth and gums.

Your child's toothbrush should be replaced every three to four months, or sooner if it is worn out or frayed. It is also a good idea to replace the toothbrush after a cold or flu to avoid reintroducing germs associated with those conditions.

Toddler's (less than 2 years of age) should spit the toothpaste out as best they can after toothbrushing with parental guidance due to the fact that they are learning the expectoration (spitting out) process at this age and the additional of the fluoride will enhance tooth enamel to become stronger. Children (ages 2 to 5) can rinse with a small amount of water after toothbrushing.

Steps to Brushing

Since young children may not know how to properly brush their teeth, parents should provide assistance. Parents can teach their children how to brush by following these important steps:

How to Brush

Step 1: To properly brush children's teeth, the parent or child should angle a soft-bristled toothbrush at 45 degrees angle towards the gums of the upper and lower teeth.
Step 2: The toothbrush should be moved gently in a back-and-forth motion with short strokes along the teeth and gums. This technique should be continued along every tooth's interior and exterior surface in a similar way.
Step 3: The tip of the brush should be placed in an upright position to reach behind the front teeth on the top and bottom.
Step 4: Brush the tongue to remove bacteria on the surface.

IMPORTANT: The tongue should also be brushed to remove bacterial plaque that even those about to have a heart attack got a longer lease of health when they brush their tongues.

It is a life-long commitment to continue brushing. Make it a habit!

Regular dental visits can and should begin as early as six months after the first tooth erupts or after the child's first birthday. When a child is taught a new skill at an early age, he is likely to continue this behavior throughout adulthood. Teaching proper brushing and flossing techniques is important for developing good oral hygiene habits.

Never skip brushing your teeth.

Kids learn fast and they like imitating adults, so be the best example. Skipping brushing your teeth could give them an idea that it is fine not to brush your teeth. Set yourself as a good example to them for them to religiously do this activity every after meals; breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Consistency is the key.
