Oral health is a great indicator of overall health. Caring for your child’s teeth will help to prevent tooth decay — and get them off to the best possible start in life.
Children’s teeth can start coming through at about 6 months, and most children have a full set of 20 teeth by about age 3. Its important to start brushing teeth as soon as they arrive. How you brush your child’s teeth is important too, for example using the right type of toothpaste for your child will aid oral health. The links and resources below will help you to navigate the best way to look after your children’s teeth.
Tooth decay is preventable. Eating the right kinds of food at the right time of day, and limiting sweetened foods between mealtimes, can help to keep your child’s teeth healthy. While snacks between meals are fine, sugary foods can weaken enamel over time, so it is better to provide with healthy snacks where possible.
We have compiled a series of resources that we hope you will find helpful when taking care of children’s teeth.
