How often do you brush your child's teeth?

Do you floss them? If so, how often?

Couple times a day. She won't let me floss. And she refuses to let the dentist look in her mouth :/ We have a referral for a pediatric dentist that can use sedation/nitrous so they can get in there and see what's going on. One of the reasons she sees neurology is because she falls a lot and most of the time she doesn't catch herself with her hands so she often hits her face into things from what little her dentist can see and what I've described, the dentist is pretty sure all of those falls have killed the nerves in the two front teeth so we may need baby root canals

I never though of flossing either! I didn't think to do it so young. One of my good friends floss her kids teeth twice a day and when she told me that her youngest was 1 1/2.

At this age, the dentists we've had usually don't suggest flossing because kids are so wiggly and it can be hard enough to just get a brush in there If you have a calm toddler, though, it can work

We brush twice a day, with a combination of me and her taking turns doing it. With flossing I just give her one of those kids sized flosser thingies and let her go at it herself. They are easy to hold and are really small so they fit in her mouth really well. (They sell like a pack of 50 for $1) She will even tell me she has something in her teeth and ask me for one sometimes.
