Let Your Kids Take Charge of Their Teeth


Let Your Kids Take Charge of Their Teeth

Each day offers an opportunity for your child to learn new things. Last week's lesson was about twisting, licking and dunking a cookie on a glass of milk. The other day was about making “bunny ear loops” to tie shoelaces. With so many things that you can teach your child, perhaps you could also demonstrate how to take care of one’s teeth. A young age is ideal for developing the habit of brushing and flossing.

According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, having healthy and strong teeth is important to your child’s overall health. Teaching the importance of taking care of one’s teeth not only programs a mental attitude toward dental hygiene but also helps develop a sense of responsibility, particularly that of taking care of one's body.

Brush regularly:Ideally, brush twice a day after breakfast and before going to bed at night. Brush not only the front teeth but also those at the back. Use gentle strokes to avoid hurting the gums. Also, don’t forget to brush the tongue.

Use a toothbrush with soft bristles: Your child’s gums are tender and could get hurt by toothbrush with hard bristles. Remember to replace his toothbrush after every three months.

Dental floss and antibacterial mouthwash: Dental floss helps remove excess food particles lodged between the teeth. After flossing, use mouthwash to rinse out bacteria and plaque. Ask your dentist for the ideal mouth rinse for your child.

Developing these good dental habits at a young age can help your child have healthy teeth.
