Do children before the age of three need their teeth cleaned?
The first baby tooth will erupt at age between 4-9 months. It is important that a daily cleaning routine should be established. A soft cloth or a soft baby tooth brush can be used to gently rubbing the erupted teeth and gums. Parents should assist the child to clean their teeth up to the age of 7 years old to ensure that it is done properly.
Are electric toothbrushes better than the manual brushes?
If you brush incorrectly, it doesn’t matter what kind of toothbrush you use. Using the manual toothbrush with good knowledge of how to brush can do just as well as using a power toothbrush.
Flossing is just as important as brushing teeth. Food trapped between teeth is the major cause of tooth cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.
