February is Children’s Dental Health Month
Teeth should be brushed as soon as they emerge, but oral health can start even earlier! Brushing baby’s gums is a good way to begin the routine of brushing and ensure clean gums.
As children grow, they should be brushing twice a day for two minutes. This may not always be on the top of their list of things to do, but try to make it fun! Incorporate a game, brush with them, or even use a timer (some even have a fun tooth theme!)
