Tooth Brushing

 

The basics of brushing teeth are no magic but a set of simple rules, easy to follow:

  • Brushing teeth after breakfast
  • Sugar-free morning and a healthy lunch
  • Less often food & drink in the afternoon containing sugar
  • Fix a time in the afternoon when you hand out candy from a locked ( i.e. no access for children) cupboard. These should be eaten at once – and no playing while eating.
  • Brushing teeth immediately before going to bed, thereafter no more food or drink - except for (mineral) water.
  • Dear parents, please do the brushing of your child’s teeth at all sides yourselves,
    as the skill of your child’s wrist has not yet fully developed up until roughly the end of year 4 at (German) elementary school (ca. age 10).
