On Wednesday 19th December the Tooth Fairy visited our school. She told us all about how to take care of our teeth. Here are some of the interesting facts we learned.
- Brush your teeth well twice a day – after breakfast and last thing before going to bed. Don’t have anything to eat or drink after you have cleaned your teeth before going to bed. Drinking water is ok.
- Use fluoride toothpaste. From 6 years of age you can use adult toothpaste, but make sure you spit it out when you have finished cleaning your teeth. Children under 6 need to use a special children’s toothpaste.
- Gently and thoroughly brush each side of every tooth and the gums. It should take about 2 minutes.
