From healthy milk teeth to healthy adult teeth
Milk teeth are important. They act as the placeholders for adult teeth. Strong, healthy milk teeth also support the development of your child’s jaw as well as their speech and language.
For a healthy oral microflora
If the oral microflora is no longer in balance, decay attacks the milk teeth. This increases the likelihood of tooth decay in adult teeth.
Make cleaning teeth fun and joyful… so you can both enjoy quality parent-child time. Establishing this playful, enjoyable ritual gives them the basis for a great oral health care routine for life.
Step by step
Time flies. Before you know it, your child will be cleaning their teeth independently. Here’s how you can support them through this journey:
Phase 1: Dependent cleaning
From the first tooth. You take control of their oral hygiene.
Phase 2: Supported brushing
From two-and-a-half years old. Your child starts to brush their own teeth. You finish off with a thorough brush.
Phase 3: Supervised brushing
From 9 years. You regularly check, motivate and support them with their oral health.
Phase 4: Independent brushing
Young adults. They’re responsible for brushing their teeth and looking after their oral health.
