Do you have a hard time properly brushing your child’s teeth each day? If so, our Sam Amirani DDS team has some instructions that will help you properly and effectively clean your child’s smile on a regular basis.

We recommend following these steps twice a day so your child can grow into the healthiest smile possible:

-Step 1: As you brush your child’s chompers, make sure you use a child-sized, soft-bristled toothbrush with a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Hold the brush at a 45-degree angle to the gums of the upper and lower teeth.

-Step 2: Brush each tooth with a back-and-forth motion. Use short strokes and make sure to clean along the gumline. Use this technique for each tooth and make sure you brush the back surfaces of the teeth as well.

-Step 3: To brush the back surfaces of the front teeth, hold the brush upright so the tip can reach behind the teeth.

-Step 4: After you are done brushing, brush the tongue to remove the bacteria and germs that reside there.
