Cleaning your child's teeth

It is important to brush your teeth to prevent gum disease. Refusal to brush one’s teeth for several days can lead to the onset of gum disease. Brushing ensures the removal of plaque, which is the primary cause for tooth decay and gum disease; it also arrests the build-up of any plaque formation.

At St Stephen's we encourage all our children to brush their teeth. In nursery and reception they are brushed daily but they also need regular brushing at home.  We have downloaded some advice for parents/carers on how to make sure your child's teeth are clean and healthy. If you need any advice then please make an appointment to see Mrs O'Brien.
