Four ADA recommendations for a healthy mouth

  3. Every 3 or 4 months replace your child’s toothbrush.
  4. Children should use ADA accepted toothpaste with fluoride

 

 

Proper brushing techniques are as follows:

Clean the inside surface of each tooth by vertically tilting the toothbrush and cleaning the inside surfaces of the front teeth.

4. Brush your tongue

Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and keep your breath fresh.
