Children’s tooth care checklist

  • Brush morning and night with a children’s toothpaste
  • Have an adult brush the child’s teeth until 8 years old
  • Floss teeth that touch – maybe use a flossette
  • Avoid foods with added sugars including yoghurt and other so-called “health foods”
  • Avoid packaged foods – fresh is best
  • Try to avoid snacking in between meals especially on sugary foods
  • Make a dentist appointment for 6 monthly checkups – even small holes can progress quickly in milk teeth. Also the dentist will see if an orthodontic referral is needed

Here at Dentistry on King in Buderim, we know that children (and parents!) can get nervous about coming to the dentist and we pride ourselves on our gentle and fun approach with children.
