How often should children brush their teeth?

Children should be brushing their teeth with the same frequency as adults. This means twice a day for a period of two minutes at a time. Even if your child has lost teeth, they should still be allocating at least two minutes, twice a day to their oral hygiene routine. The same can be true for toddlers too. During your child’s brushing routine, a good portion of the time should be spent on molars as this is where cavities frequently develop.
