Use a Small Amount of Toothpaste

It's important not to use too much toothpaste. A pea size amount is fine because it doesn't create too much foam to interfere with brushing.

Best Position for Brushing

It is the easiest to stand behind or beside your child with your arms around their neck. Hold the toothbrush in a position that's comfortable for you.

Brush the Back Teeth First

The first 2 minutes of brushing should be focused on the child's upper and lower back teeth, where cavities usually develop first. Use short and circular motions, like you would with your own teeth, spending the most time on the chewing surfaces

Be sure to teach your child how to rinse, by swishing water around in his/her mouth and spit. Swallowing too much toothpaste could result in a condition known as Fluorosis which could cause white spots to form on the teeth.

Finish up Front

Finish the final minute of brushing by focusing on the upper and lower front teeth. Angle the toothbrush where it is comfortable and flexible. Remember to brush the sides facing the tongue, as well as the sides facing the lips.

Admire Your Child's Teeth

Congratulate your child for doing such a great job and compliment them on their beautiful and shiny teeth! Praising your child could boost their self esteem, and possibly get them interested in oral health.
