Brush children’s teeth as soon as they erupt at about 6 months, brushing before bed and at least one other time daily using a fluoride toothpaste.

Have regard for the strength of fluoride toothpaste and after brushing spit out the excess toothpaste and saliva and not to rinse with either water or a mouthwash.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet and reducing the amount of sugar consumed will help prevent dental caries.

Avoid consuming foods and drinks containing added sugar before bedtime, as the mouth produces less saliva at night to protect your teeth.
