Establishing good brushing habits early is important for your children’s oral health. The health of their baby teeth can have a profound effect on their adult teeth. Instilling the importance of this habit to children can be hard. A great way to do this is to make brushing fun for kids. 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. How can you make it fun and help your kids brush better?
Brushing their teeth for at least two minutes is a major part of maintaining their oral health. Brushing for that long can make an adult antsy, much less an energetic kid. There’s no need for it to be a boring chore. You can help pass the time by making it a game or by playing a song.
There are so many interesting and fun toothbrushes your children can choose from. Some play music while others have exciting colors or feature a cartoon character they love. 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.
