Toothbrushing know-how

  • Children’s teeth should be brushed by an adult until at least 7 years old. We know this can be tough for parents/carers but your help is needed to make sure it is done properly

  • Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste: last thing at night and one other time during the day

  • Check the toothpaste contains at least 1000ppm fluoride. It’s the fluoride that makes teeth stronger and less likely to decay
