Many parents would like to know the best way to brush their child’s teeth.I advise using electronic toothbrush and follow a certain pattern for brushing the teeth. Following this pattern, we will brush the teeth every time in the same way and direction.
If we are starting from the right side, we ask the child to open their mouth a little bit so that the brush can reach the last tooth. The last teeth in the mouth are the ones that usually don’t get brushed properly. Since it is an electronic brush, we don’t have to rub the brush on the teeth. We just leave it for approximately three seconds before moving on to the next tooth. When we don’t use an electronic toothbrush and we randomly rub the brush, we would miss few teeth that will later get decayed. It is better that we carefully brush the gums, and brush for two complete minutes. We also have to help our children brush their teeth until the age of 10.
Happy Teeth Brushing!
