How do we brush our teeth?

When brushing the teeth, the child should have his mouth open so that we can brush the upper and lower teeth separately. We start from the upper jaw, from the back teeth and place the toothbrush with a 45 degree angle in relation to the tooth. In this way we brush all the upper teeth around the outside by making small movements – vibrations at the point where the toothbrush touches. Then we turn the toothbrush to brush teeth and gums from the inside.

When we are done with the teeth, we also brush the child’s tongue. We shouldn’t be afraid to use enough power. The toothbrush cannot harm the gums. On the contrary, it makes them stronger and healthier. We must always keep the child’s head still with one hand, while we brush his/her teeth.
