- Oral Hygiene for Children
Teeth should be brushed 2 times daily for approximately 2 minutes each time, brush in the morning and especially before bedtime.
Always use a soft bristled toothbrush.
Encourage children to brush their own teeth, but parents should assist with and supervise brushing until a child is 7 or 8 years of age, as children often lack the manual dexterity required to do a thorough job.
