1. Make the daily routine of brushing their teeth fun.  Purchasing a toothbrush (with soft bristles)  that lights up or has your child's favorite character on it is a way to make brushing brushing fun.  A flouride toothpaste that is bubblegum or fruit flavored will also encourage a child to brush their teeth. 

2. Limit the frequency of sweets.  Every time you eat or drink sugar,  acid is produced and remains on your teeth for up to an hour.  Any food or drink that contains sugar is harmful to teeth.

3. Dental cleanings every six months will help catch potential dental problems in their earliest stages and remove calcified plaque that is impossible to get rid of through tooth brushing and flossing alone.  It is also important to check that the teeth are properly developing.

4.You may need to help children brush their teeth, especially those under the age of 6.  Let them brush themselves first, maybe while you brush yours, then tell them it's your turn.  You can even let them brush your teeth too!
