Fluoride is generally present in most public drinking water systems. If you’re unsure about your community’s water and its fluoride content, or learn that it has an unacceptable degree of fluoride in it, there are fluoride supplements your dentist can prescribe. Your child may not have enough fluoride just by using fluoride toothpaste.


Brushing should be taken seriously, but it doesn’t need to be serious. Encourage kids to make big, circular brush strokes like train wheels and create as numerous “mouth bubbles” as they can; or pretend they have to clean their “big dinosaur teeth.” When brushing is playful, there’s less pressure. When children see brushing as a simple daily habit rather than a chore, there will be less protest.
