Making it an enjoyable experience and providing them with agency is a great way for them to latch on and keep their smile healthy now and in the future. Here are 3 tips to help your children brush better.
A child brushing their teeth for at least two minutes is a major part of maintaining their oral health. Brushing for that long can make even an adult antsy, much less an energetic kid. There’s no need for it to be a complete slog. You can help pass the time by playing a song or making a game out of it.
There are so many fun and interesting toothbrushes your children can choose from. Some play music while others have exciting colors or feature a beloved cartoon character. As long as the toothbrush has the ADA seal of approval, the sky is the limit.
Establishing a routine of regularly visiting their dentist at least every six months is a great habit to build along with brushing their teeth. Your dentist offers what are known as “Happy Visits” to help your child grow comfortable with visiting their dentist.
