Between Ages 2 and 6 - Toddlers

All of your child's primary teeth should be in place and your child may be interested in caring for their teeth. Depending on the interest level and fine motor abilities allow them to participate. Remember that caring for their teeth is critical for their development and you must still ensure that it is done properly.

Care for Your Toddlers Teeth - Brampton Dental Office that caters to ChildrenDuring this age range you can begin to teach them proper brushing habits. Please ask us if you have any questions or would like us to offer yourself and your child a demonstration on proper technique.

Equally important is the amount and type of tooth paste you choose to use. While some fluoride is helpful for healthy well coloured adult teeth, too much fluoride can lead to a condition known as flourosis. Only a 'pea sized' amount is needed and try to teach your child not to swallow the toothpaste.

During this age range you should discourage a thumb sucking habit if they have one as it can lead to future oral problems. Remember to bring your child in for regular visits and cleanings to ensure they are comfortable and that their oral development is healthy. This stage of your child's development often allows us to foresee future problems before they become serious.
