Essential Dental Care Tips for Toddlers

Caring for a Toddler’s Teeth :

Caring for a Toddler’s Teeth The toddler years are when little ones explore more of everything around them. Having them brush their teeth might seem a bother to them. But, it’s important to be patient. Kids are likely to carry with them good oral hygiene habits that they develop early on. Hence, you get to help your toddler keep their teeth healthy and beautiful for a lifetime.

Slide 3:

Here are some Tips to Help You Get Started:

Make Brushing Fun:

Make Brushing Fun Kids might not find brushing and flossing appealing, but don’t give up. Set a good example by brushing your teeth regularly and inviting them to join in the fun too. Let them pick the toothbrush they want. You may also use a toothpaste that’s made especially for kids. Create an event or make up a story to make every brushing time more engaging for the little ones.

Use a Gentle Approach:

Use a Gentle Approach Make dental care a positive experience for your toddlers. Don’t use force, threat, or negative stories to get your little ones to care for their teeth. If it takes you several attempts to get them to brush, that’s okay. Take a step back and pause if you’re starting to feel exhausted.

Follow up Their Brushing:

Follow up Their Brushing If your little ones are already brushing their teeth, be sure to check on their work. Kids this age are not yet physically capable of giving their mouth a good clean. You may need to brush or floss them again. If possible, brush at the same time so you can show to them the proper way to clean their teeth.

Leave Reminders To Your Babysitter:

Leave Reminders To Your Babysitter If you’re working full-time, talk to your babysitter about dental care. Remind them to associate brushing to positive thoughts. Your kids need to continue with their good dental care habits even if you’re not around.

Give Them Healthy Snacks:

Give Them Healthy Snacks Introduce teeth-friendly snacks to your little ones. If you must give them sweets, time it so you can avoid them from munching on sugar throughout the day. Encourage them to drink more water too to promote salivary flow in their mouth.

Take Them to the Dentist:

Take Them to the Dentist See expert advice from your dentist about the type of toothpaste that’s best for your little ones. Have them take a look at the mouth of your little ones so you’ll find out if there are oral health issues you need to be aware of. Dentists are also working hard to make visits comfortable for kids. They’re your partners in caring for your child’s teeth.
