In early childhood, there are deciduous teeth that must be maintained and maintained in order to stay healthy and support children to grow and develop optimally. At the age of 6 years will begin to grow permanent teeth that will be used for life. Therefore, children need to be equipped with knowledge and skills in maintaining oral health independently. Parents, especially mothers, are the closest people to children who will provide assistance and guidance to early childhood children in carrying out dental health maintenance, in connection with children who are not yet able to do it themselves.
