3-6歲蛀牙風險 誰來刷牙 Who should do the brushing?
在 3 - 6 歲的這個期間，有些孩子可能比較自主，或是想要模仿大人，會開始吵著說他要自己刷牙。
能自己刷牙是很好的事情，但這個年紀的小孩手還不夠靈巧，自己無法刷乾淨。建議先讓小孩自己刷一次練習自己刷牙的動作和養成習慣，但要乾淨還是要大人幫忙刷才算數，一樣一天至少 2 次刷牙，至少 1 次牙線。
牙膏可以用到豌豆大小，氟錠可以吃到 0.5 mg / 天，還是可以定期給醫師檢查跟塗氟，預防蛀牙，守護孩子的笑容。
From 3 to 6 years old, some children may want to feel more independent or try to imitate adults and want to brush their own teeth.
It's great for children to brush their teeth. However, children this age do not have the hand dexterity to thoroughly brush their teeth. It's advised to have your children brush first to practice their cleaning moves and develop a habit. However, it should be followed by adults' assistance, at least twice a day and floss once a day. In addition, a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and 0.5mg of fluoride table a day, a regular dentist visit and fluoride varnish, all of these are beneficial to cavity prevention.
