As they get older, your child will want to start brushing their own teeth. At this stage, we can begin to gently educating them on the best way to look after their teeth on their own. Our dental therapist is excellent at relating to children and can demonstrate the best way to brush and floss, in a way that is interesting and fun. At the same time, we can talk to them about why oral health is so important and how it can affect their general health. By teaching them the proper way to look after their mouth, we hope to build healthy habits that will last for life.
