Brushing children’s teeth

Borsta tänder på barn - engelska

It is a good idea to start tooth brushing as soon as your child gets their first tooth. Getting your child used to having their teeth brushed early on will make it a natural part of their daily routine.

For children up to the age of two, it is mainly about getting them used to having a toothbrush in their mouth. You should start tooth brushing regularly as soon as your child’s first tooth appears. Just before the tooth breaks through, the gums can itch and your child may like having something to bite on, for example a toothbrush.

Brush your child’s teeth twice a day. In the morning, preferably after breakfast, and before they go to bed in the evening.
