Teaching your children about the importance of proper dental hygiene is the best way to motivate them to continue a proper regimen as adults. In this video, you can find some great tips that will help you take care of your child’s teeth while teaching them valuable life lessons.
Some of the tips include:
- Letting children choose their own toothbrush and toothpaste. This helps children feel like a participant and gets them excited about dental hygiene. Make sure they choose products appropriate for their age.
- Until age 5 or 6, brush your children’s teeth thoroughly, then let them brush a second time. This ensures removal of all debris, while also letting children build a routine.
- Use floss sticks to make it easier to floss your child’s mouth.
