BRUSHING YOUR CHILD'S TEETH

            BRUSHING YOUR CHILD'S TEETH !!!!!!!

              Did you know that your baby is born with 20 primary tooth buds, many of which are already fully developed in their  jaw?

               
 This means proper dental care should start as early as possible well before your baby's first tooth appears. 

CHOOSING A TOOTH BRUSH AND TOOTH PASTE


      ๐Ÿ‘‰ It is importance to choose a proper sized tooth brush that will fit in your child's mouth.
      ๐Ÿ‘‰ The brush itself should be soft so it doesn't damage the teeth or gums.
      ๐Ÿ‘‰ Tooth paste should contain fluoride.


ORAL CARE

  1. BIRTH TO 18th MONTHS: 
      Starting from birth, run a damp washcloth over your baby's gums to clear harmful bacteria from your baby's mouth.

                 ➤ When teeth begins to show around 9 months. you can start yours child's teeth an infants tooth brush.

A small amount of toothpaste and water is all that is need.





    2.18th MONTH TO 6 YEARS:

           Starting around 18th months, sit your child facing away from you on your lap and tilt their head back so you can see all of their teeth .

          Place a small amount of toothpaste(with fluoride) on a soft tooth brush.



    3. AGE 6 THROUGH CHILDHOOD:

                At around age 6, your child is old enough to brush their own teeth.
              It is important to monitor the brushing to make sure it is being done properly and for several minutes.

THE BRUSHING PROCESS

            ๐Ÿ‘ถAngle the brush bristles towards the gums and move gently in circles to clean both the inner and outer sides of the teeth and the gums.
            ๐Ÿ‘ถ Switch strokes to brush back and forth on the chewing surface of the teeth.
            ๐Ÿ‘ถ Throughout the brushing process, make sure your child spits out the toothpaste.   


  

EARLY SIGNS OF PROBLEMS

        ๐Ÿ‘ถBabies and children can develop tooth decay if proper dental habits aren't started early.
       ๐Ÿ‘ถ Putting a baby or child to bed with a bottle can harm their teeth because the sugars in the juice or milk remain on the teeth and gums and can eat away at the enamel.


       ๐Ÿ‘ถ Pitted or discolored teeth can result,along with cavities.
       ๐Ÿ‘ถ Another sign of poor oral care is red and swollen gums or plaque, seen as a furry white film over the teeth.
