Establish a regular tooth care regimen even before your child's first tooth appears! You can begin by wiping your baby's gums and erupting teeth with a wet cloth or gauze after meals. This will help remove food particles and bacteria from the erupting teeth and gums.

Ideally you want to spend about three minutes brushing, which may not be easy with younger preschoolers. When it comes to brushing your child's teeth, quality is more important than quantity. Just do the best brushing you can. The most important thing is getting to all the tooth surfaces, especially the back teeth.

As an added care method, floss afterward to make sure no food is left in areas which are difficult to reach using a toothbrush. Gently floss and follow your teeth’s contour instead of forcing the floss into each gap, since this can hurt the gums in between, not to mention create an unpleasant gap between teeth.

In brushing your teeth, avoid vigorous strokes to protect the sensitive gums and thus prevent soreness. Go for toothbrushes with soft bristles instead of the rather hard ones.

Brush your teeth gently, carefully, and in a circular manner. This would help clean teeth and gums properly without hurting the very sensitive areas.

It is essential to brush your teeth TWICE A DAY. It is a sin in teeth care to sleep without brushing your teeth because you are actually opening a door for the bacteria and germs to attack your teeth in very possible way.

Get flossing. Dentists often joke that you don’t have to floss all your teeth – only the ones you want to keep. Many dentists recommend tape-style floss because it doesn’t cut the gums.
