When I became a mom, I promised myself to take care of my baby's teeth just as my mom took care of mine. I am proud of my teeth and I have been complimented about it many times too. hihi!:) I remember my mom taking me to the dentist when I was just 7 years old. She also taught us to always brush our teeth and it was worth it because I did not have a major problem with my teeth in my teens even up to this day.
Now that I am a mom, I am paying it forward to my son. I even found a partner in ensuring my baby's teeth would grow and stay healthy. Meet my dental hygiene partner, Sansfluo!!

Tips in Teaching Dental Hygiene to Infants and Children
As soon as the first tooth comes out, train your babies to brush their teeth thrice a day.
Training them early can get them used to the routine making it stick to them easier.
Make the experience fun and enjoyable.
You know how kids are right? They should laugh and find their new experiences fun so they would want to do it again. My husband and I make sure to brush our baby together and sing along so he would associate a feel good feeling in brushing. We would invite him to sing along with us or dance before we brush his teeth so he looks forward to the activity. Until now that he's 1 year and 2 months, he still enjoys brushing his teeth with us.
Use appropriate brushing tools.
Use age appropriate brushes when brushing your baby's teeth. Start them with dental brush and gum massager in the early stages of brushing. We shifted to Pen GripBaby toothbrush when he had about four teeth and was biting us already.
Make sure to stick to the routine and be consistent. Doing so will make your babies and children used to the routine and it will be easier for them to keep the habit of brushing their teeth.
Bring them to the Dentist.
As early as the first tooth comes out, it is best to bring them to the dentist. It is best to always seek for expert advise from them so we will be guided to out baby and children's dental hygiene.
Be role models.
Teaching dental hygiene to our children will be a lot easier if we walk the talk. We are their role models so anything we do serves as an example to them including our dental hygiene. Our brushing routines can definitely influence their as well.
Smiles become sweeter when all members of the family has great and healthy teeth. Sansfluo can be your choice in keeping your babies and kids' teeth healthy and strong. Sansfluo Toothgel Cleanser is perfect for our baby because it is safe to swallow and has xylitol. It comes in two flavors, strawberry and orange. Our baby loves the orange taste of the gel cleanser.
