Slide 2:

Cavities are a common occurrence among young children that result in expensive trips to the dentist. Parents can help their children avoid cavities and develop lifelong habits of dental hygiene by promoting healthy dental practices at home starting in early childhood. Here are 4 techniques to help you teach your kids to brush better.   1 . Be a Role Model   Parents should brush their own teeth on a regular basis, demonstrating proper techniques that children can follow. Tooth brushing can become a family activity in which everyone participates.

2 . Make it Routine   Set a firm tooth brushing schedule to make it part of the daily routine that your child is less likely to forget and more likely to anticipate without complaint.   3 . Make it Fun   Tooth brushing might be routine, but it doesn’t have to be boring. You can tell stories, play games or sing songs to make this activity fun.

4 . Let Your Child Participate   Another way to make tooth brushing fun is to let your child pick the toothpaste or the toothbrush. Inclusion in the decision-making process as well as fun colors and characters on the toothbrush make dental hygiene more exciting.   Even if your child has healthy habits for dental hygiene, regular visits to the dentist are important, too.
