Dental Hygiene

As soon as teeth erupt in the mouth brush them twice daily with fluoridated toothpaste. The department of health advises that fluoride toothpaste should contain no less than 1,000ppm for children aged between 0-6. Teeth should be brushed at least twice a day with a pea sized amount of the fluoride toothpaste and it should be spat out after brushing without rinsing as this helps to maintain fluoride concentration.
