For more toothy fun, see if your little one can work out which animals these teeth belong to?
Show them the picture of the teeth, encourage them to give you the name of the animal they think the teeth belong to before you flip the card to find out if they were right.
You can talk to them about different shaped teeth for different purposes, for example pointy canines for ripping meat and flatter molars for chewing. Get them to look at their own teeth in the mirror too!
Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust runs a confidential secure text messaging service for parents of children aged 0-19 years called Chat Health. The service operates Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, excluding bank holidays. All texts will be responded to by a public health nurse (health visitor/school nurse) within 24 hours. Outside of the service working hours, you’ll receive a message back to inform you that your text will be responded to once the line reopens.
Should you require urgent health advice in the meantime, please contact your GP, visit an NHS walk-in centre or call NHS 111. For emergencies, dial 999 or visit A&E.
