We recommend brushing your toddler’s teeth twice daily for dental health. Your child will start to get more independent and may insist on doing it themselves, but you still need to do the brushing for them. During these young years of age, children don’t have the ability to properly brush their teeth for good home dental care. Try to make it fun and positive by playing games. Your child can try to brush by themselves but it has to be followed by a more thorough brushing by a parent.
