Q.

kids teeth

Good day

At what age can you expect your child to brush their teeth on their own?

my child is 5yrs and does brush on her own but does not do a good job of it yet so i have to go afterwards and brush her teeth to make sure it is done properly

At what age does a childs baby teeth losen up and fall out for big one to start comming out? my childs baby teeth has not started losening up yet and she is 5yrs old, or am i being to eager?

It is best to supervise/brush your child's teeth till around 8years from my experience.
Permanent teeth start erupting at around 6
