Burlington Oakville Ontario toothbrush toothbrushing techniques children kids baby infants suggestions

Before your child's teeth erupt, clean the baby's mouth with a soft cloth or infant toothbrush at bath time.  This helps ready the baby for the teeth cleaning to come.


When the teeth erupt, clean the child's teeth at least twice a day with a toothbrush designed for small children. We recommend that you assist with brushing your child's teeth until they are around 7 years of age or able to tie their own shoes.


Remember to change your toothbrush every 3-6 months when the bristles start to fray. We also recommend changing your toothbrush after a child gets sick to prevent possible re-infection




We have toothbrushes for all ages!  Call us for a hands-on demonstration on brushing techniques and we can provide you the toothbrush at no charge.
