We, at Ellerslie 66 Dental, see children as well as adults. We promote children’s dental health as much as adults’. We need you—parents’ participation and help in this process. Without parents’ support children will not be able to maintain their dental health.
Regular Dental Examination
PFS (pit-and-fissure sealants)
Young children are too young to clean their own teeth well. Thus parent(s) must do it them when they are too young and help them as they get older.
Even before babies have teeth, parents should start clean their tongue and gum using a soft gauze. After they have their teeth, parents can continue using gauze to clean tongue, gum and teeth. Parents can also start using rubber toothbrush and soft toothbrush to clean.
When children have good fine motor controls, they are ready to brush their teeth well. Still, parents should check to make sure they clean well.
Once a child can spit things out, toothpaste with fluoride is recommended. Only use a small amount of toothpaste every time.
For a child when can not spit yet, training toothpaste can be used.
