Looking after your children's teeth

Creating a dental routine early can ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles for your child. Baby teeth are important teeth, and cavity prevention starts before the first tooth appears!

It is important to take your child to the dentist regularly from the age of two years. Encourage your child to brush their teeth twice a day with a child’s toothbrush and using a pea sized amount of children’s fluoride toothpaste. Why not try one of our deliciously flavoured toothcelansers made from natural essential oils:

-                English Peppermint - refreshingly cool with a deliciously invigorating taste

-                Sicilian Lemon - a delicious explosion of citrus zest

-                Brazilian Lime - delicious and bursting with freshness

-                Garden Mint - clean, fresh & deliciously green

Children should have their teeth  brushed for them when they are young and should have supervised brushing until  you are confident that they are able to brush sufficiently on their own. This is normally at the age of seven.

Tooth decay in teeth is affected by how much sugar is in the diet. Reducing the sugar in your child’s diet is the best way to prevent decay.  However, it is how often your child  eats sugary foods (rather than how much) that is important.

It is a good idea to keep fizzy  drinks, cakes and sweets to a minimum.  Also don’t give your child sugary foods and drinks as snacks between meals or before bedtime.
