Infants – Gum pads and teeth should be cleaned off with gauze or a washcloth.
Toddlers – Brush twice a day with minimal toothpaste.
3 – 6 years old – Start letting your child brush their own teeth, with your supervision and guidance. You may step in with a final brush for optimal results. Begin to floss their teeth as they get closer together / tighter.
6 and older – Keep guiding your child’s dental care habits until you are positive they can maintain good oral care (teeth brushing + flossing) on their own, properly.
We recommend avoiding hard candy (foods), sticky and chewy foods to maintain the space maintainer integrity.
