One reason din sa dis colorization ng teeth is the vitamins that we give to our kids...

^at an early age kahit baby pa mga anak ko e ako eong super excited ng lahat ng stage ng toohbrush e binibili..i also let them watch yung mga show na nagtuturo ng good hygiene like barney..I teach them the song .. THIS IS THE WAY para malaman nila kung pano alagaan sarilinila kahit bata pa sila..

ang nakakatuwa at age 1 1/2 yung panganay ko never siyang nagpahirap sa dentista niya, kelangan kasi alagaan teeth niya since yung gyne ko dati e napainom ako ng antibiotic na me tetracyclene<tama ba spelling?> ayun paglabas ng teeth ni babygirl ko stainy..at 4 years old natuto na syang mag mouthwash..hay! same  with my 3 year old boy nag ma-mouthwash na rin...

I also use sansfluo because it claims that it has no fluoride but recently i notice that some portion of my son's teeth appears to have some "chalk-like" stains.I read somewhere that this is a sign of too much fluoride, will have it checked soon.

this is true mommy_hek, sabi din ng dentist ko last week lang nagpa pasta ako tapos napansin niya yung teeth ko may mga chalk like stain...that's too much flouride daw at pag hindi ko daw ma treat eventually rurupok yun mga teeth that will cause it to break, may ni recommend syang pampahid if i remember it correctly "gum mousse" ata but that time di ko pa nabili kasi ang mahal P1,500 eh wala akong dala money that time kasi medicard ang gamit ko nun...but this is very effective daw to lessen the flouride of the teeth at para mag pantay din yun color ng teeth...

oo nga e mommy dedski.. yung hubby ko kasi ang pumili nun, pwede na raw yun.. ganun kasi talaga yun e! walang pakelam kung recommended for babies ang isang product or not basta may magamit lang ok na para hindi daw maging maselan..:( medyo maanghang nga yun pag naparami ng lagay and nakalagay sa box "do not swallow" so nag-wo-worry ako baka may hindi magandang effect yun kay baby.. how much po ba yung sansflou? ok lang po ba yun malulon ni baby?

@alexismom: natry mo na sis to change toothbrush? yung maaaliw siya. like favorite character niya or makulay. basta soft bristles pa din. yung ma excite siya na hawakan toothbrush niya. may time din daughter ko na ganyan. with her naman, natatamad. but her dentist gave her these.



sobrang aliw siya sa baso na yan kasi may mirror pa so tinitignan niya teeth niya. ngayon, nag eenjoy na siya mag toothbrush.  :)

Not sure if there's a similar thread I tried searching but gave no yields.  Anyway my questions are:

1. How young was your child when she first started brushing on her own?
2. Whats the best toothpaste for a toddler say 2 to 3 yr old
3. How many times a day does your toddler brush his/her teeth?
4. Any tips you can share for this activity.

Im asking because I have a soon to be 3 year old baby daughter who is so lazy with regards to brushing her teeth so we have to do it for her... not only do we go through tantrums regularly but she pulls off tricks so that we dont have to brush her teeth e.g complaining about pain, crying and not opening her mouth.....

I wonder whats the most effective way to go through this activity with a toddler? We brush our teeth infront of her, we show her videos and clips of toddlers brushing their teeth, weve bought her so many colorful toothbrushes some with music just to get her to like this activity. Not sure if its just a phase or we havent tried enough :D

Hi sis,

dont worry sis, hindi ka nagiisa ganyan din at first baby daughter ko, same na same, super ang drama pag toothbrushing na, kaya i gave it up. hindi ko nnlng pinipilit, in a way kung masira yong teeth niya pa dentist nalang. hehe pero i bring her all the time pag grocery days ko. pinapapili ko sya ng toothbrush kahit madami na syang toothbrush go pa rin ng go tapos toothpaste na pangbata...yong dora ang picture sa box nalimotan ko close up ata yon or happy. nung dumating na kami sa bahay nung pinalagay ko sa box ng tootbrush niya yong new toothbrush and toothpaste niya ayon, sya na nagaaya magtoothbursh.

1. How young was your child when she first started brushing on her own?
a:  drama to the max, with matching tawag kay LOLA at paawa effect. laki pa ng boses kasi ayaw mag tootbrush.

2. Whats the best toothpaste for a toddler say 2 to 3 yr old
a: mdami na din brands of tootpaste dito si baby pero so far gustong gusto niya ang Happy dora toothpaste for kids kasi hindi sya yong regular na toothpaste na cool, menthol and medyo masakit sa gums minsan. Cherry flavor sya and very sweet kaya like ni baby mag toothbrush, no need na sabihan after meals diretso na sya pili ng anong gusto nyang gamitin na toothbrush and lagay ng tootpaste with matching favorite na baso. ubos ang isang malaking tootpaste in 1week and half, sya lang gamet...ok lang din. bili lang ng bago.

3. How many times a day does your toddler brush his/her teeth? 3times a day sis sometimes 5times, after meals and snack time nag toothbrush na sya..hehhe ok lang bsta hindi na need turuan masyado about toothbrush kasi love na niya magtoothbrush.

4. Any tips you can share for this activity.
a: kung magtoothbrush sya sabay kami, and then she follows my strokes. Mas matagal pa sya kesa sa akin matapos...ok lang din, ang cute tingnan...which is an added factor sa atin mga moms kasi...madami magsasabi na agn ganda ng teeth ng baby mo hindi pa sira kahit chocolate succker hehe

yes sis, naghahanap p din ako ng pang gargle ng bata na gugustohin niya, d puede sa mga listerine or ano, water nalang tas ako na ang nag floss...pero hindi ako masyado paranoid kasi at the moment sa teeth ni baby...mawawala naman kasi yan, dun nalang ako mag effort sa permanent teeth n niya, nako baka mas over paranoid ako papa dentist k palagi sya. ayaw  ko kasing panget teeth niya ma mis align, sayang naman kung lumaki kami ng papa niya na care na care ang teeth sa dentist tapos sya hindi.

My daughter likes brushing her teeth on her own pero what she does is she sucks lang on the toothpaste kaya ako talaga nagbbrush ng teeth niya. And everyday yan, iyakan blues kame. She uses a Chicco toothbrush and Sansfluo strawberry toothpaste.

We tried buying her a baby alive doll na may new teeth para sabay sila mag-brush; we tried brushing our teeth kasabay sya; we bought her a dvd of elmo brushing his teeth; mga kung ano-ano talaga. Eh ayoko naman na sya lang nagbrush ng teeth kase gusto ko maayos and I wanna brush her tongue too. So ayun, away kame each time
