That being said, there are many things parents can do at home to get their child started on a life of good dental health. In fact, parents share equal responsibility in ensuring that their child adopts proper dental care practices that will serve him throughout his life.
Brushing the teeth should begin as soon as the first teeth have appeared. While the child is still too young do the job properly, the parents will have to do the actual brushing. However, parents should continue to instruct their children on proper brushing methods, and supervise them as they are learning to do it on their own. Flossing is also the parent’s responsibility from the age of 4 until the age of 8, at which time parents should continue to supervised and monitor their children’s early efforts.
