It’s important to start good oral hygiene habits early and teach our children how to take of their teeth. Good cleaning habits are especially important if you child is wearing braces since it’s easier for food to get caught in the wires. The British Columbia Dental Association has some great resources for parents which include health tips and suggestions on how to pick a toothbrush for your child.
