It’s vital for kids to learn the importance of looking after their teeth from a young age, particularly with an ongoing increase in the rate of dental decay among children. The Australian Dental Association recommends the first trip to the dentist should be made as early as 12 months of age.
Food & drinks that are good for your teeth
These foods help to clean your teeth while you chew them. Some also help protect teeth from decay.
Food & drinks to avoid
Sugary foods contribute to tooth decay, and are also acidic – wearing away the teeth.
Morning & night
Brush your teeth in the morning after breakfast and before you go to bed at night. Time yourself and brush for 2 minutes!
Brushing removes sticky white plaque from your teeth and fluoride helps prevent decay or holes in your teeth.
