New Year, New Brushing Habits For Children!

It’s a new year, and the perfect time to start new brushing habits with your little one! Our dentists at Great Grins Children’s Dentistry in Tucson would like to remind you of some super simple but important practices. If you want better brushing habits for your child, check out the recommendations below.

Two Times a Day

We know that time flies and families get busy; we can’t believe it’s already a new year at Great Grins! However, it is SUPER important to brush your teeth. It is even more important, perhaps, for children to brush properly in order to get those good habits started early! You should brush at least two times a day, once in the morning and once at night. Your pediatric dentist may also mention that brushing at night is particularly important because those stubborn mouth monsters should not rest there while we sleep! Therefore, brush those teeth in the morning and then again before bedtime. It can be more fun to do it as a family.

Two Minutes

Remember: two minutes, two times. The American Dental Association recommends brushing for two minutes each time. That’s only a total of 4 minutes out of the 1,440 minutes that we have in a day!

Circles

In order to brush effectively, a toothbrush should be used in circular motions. An electric toothbrush can also help with this. If you have any questions regarding brushing, please ask your child’s pediatric dentist.
