Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Children should be introduced with toothbrush and toothpaste at an early age.

"if they can spit and gargle well, they can use toothpaste," said dentist Dr. Eva Faiziah.

The two requirements are crucial. If the children cannot spit well, they may swallow the toothpaste.

The best time to teach children to use toothpaste is when they are 3 years old.

"You should observe whether they do it correctly," Eva concluded.
