Encourage your child to spit out any excess toothpaste and not to rinse with lots of water
Supervise tooth brushing up to the age of 7 or 8 years. If your child brushes their own teeth, ensure you watch them from time to time to ensure they are cleaning them effectively and for at least 2 minutes
Wait approximately 1 hour after eating or drinking before brushing teeth
Reduce snacking and avoid high sugar content foods, dried foods such as raisins and sultanas, carbonated drinks, flavoured waters
