Even though it may not be easy to stop sucking on their thumb or pacifier, we strongly suggest explaining to your child starting at around the age of 3 that they must stop it.
Between the aged of two and six, we recommend closely supervising the way your child brushes their teeth, to ensure that the technique used is the right one. If you want to use fluorinated toothpaste, do not exceed a dose of 500 ppm. In children older than 6, fluorinated toothpaste of 1000 ppm may be used, following the recommendation of your dentist.
Furthermore, pay special attention to the teeth located in the back of the mouth because they are often overlooked during brushing. Also, children between the ages of 6 and 13 are more susceptible to developing cavities in their molars and premolars, so applying a dental sealant is often the best solution to prevent the infiltration of bacteria through grooves on the occlusal surface.
