In the kindergarten of the educational complex "Proton", located at Filyovsky Boulevard, 8, building 2, an educational lesson was held, timed to coincide with the International Day of the Dentist. The kids were told how to brush their teeth properly.

Nurse Elena Zablotskaya brought a huge brush and a model of teeth. The exhibits delighted the children. Everyone wanted to come up, touch, take a closer look. The children said that they were not afraid of dentists and knew that they should definitely go to them if they had a toothache.

Elena Vyacheslavovna showed the children how to hold a brush correctly, how to brush their teeth. The procedure itself should take at least three minutes. This is how long it takes to carry out complete hygiene.

Especially for the lesson, the children learned poems about dentists. And who forgot the quatrain, came up with a rhyme on the go. “We brush our teeth twice a day: in the morning and in the evening. Therefore, they grow up healthy in our country,”said Masha and Dominika.

After the lesson, we talked with Elena Zablotskaya. She is an employee of the prevention department of children's polyclinic 30 (branch 5). According to Elena Vyacheslavovna, you can teach children to brush their teeth on their own from about two years old, when they learn how to use a brush. The hygienic procedure must be supervised by the parents.

“Children are advised to use a small brush. The length of its head should not exceed 20-25 millimeters, and the width of 8-10 millimeters. For deciduous teeth, soft bristles are recommended, and when molars begin to appear, choose medium soft,”the specialist advises.

It should be noted that artificial bristles are more hygienic and do not injure the gums. A new brush must be washed with soap and hot water. And it should be used no more than three months. In the process of wear, it loses its properties.

The toothpaste should also be selected according to the age of the child. As a rule, it is indicated in the recommendations on the packaging. You don't need to squeeze out a lot of paste. The amount should be about the size of a pea. And until two years old, it is better not to use paste at all.
