  • I am pretty sure that it is normal for toddlers teeth to be spaced out because they are not fully grown in yet, my daughters are also and she is 2 1/2. I brush her teeth twice daily. If you are worried about his dental health, one of the best things you can do is stay away from sugary foods like juice (if you have to give him some water it down), ect. and make sure you brush his teeth before bed time.

  • Twice a day. Spacing between the teeth is very normal in toddlers - in fact I've seen very few who didn't have some space. You have several years before you have to worry about dental work! Just make sure you keep them clean and instill good dental habits now.
