Are You Teaching Your Kids to Brush Their Teeth Correctly?

Permanent Linkby parisfamily on Fri Dec 22, 2017 8:36 am

As a parent, we are responsible for teaching our children important skills in life. One of these skills is to teach them at a young age how to take care of their teeth. Teaching them at a young age to brush properly and floss their teeth is important but it is also challenging. Children mostly would rush their brushing so they could continue their playtime activity or they are rushing to go to bed. Encouraging kids to brush properly at a young age is crucial. It will have a great impression on their mindset which in turn will become a habit as they grow older.
Start them early. Teach them to brush at an early age. It is best to let them start as soon as their teeth had come out.
Be their guide. Your children will emulate your actions. Let your children see and watch you how you brush your teeth from the front to the back. What they see, they will follow. Brush your own teeth at the same time as your children. Your children will see and value the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene.
Set proper techniques. Teach them about the proper techniques on brushing: It should be 45 degree angle and brushing should go from the base to the top in an even, circular motion. Every brush stroke have to be short and sweeping, shifting among teeth in an even, circular style.
Flossing. Flossing can start at the age when their baby teeth had fallen out and the new teeth emerge. Teach the C technique – Flossing in the shape of letter C around each tooth. This ensures the proper cleaning of each tooth.
Motivation and encouragement. Guide them patiently when they brush, use words of encouragement and praise to motivate them to do brushing. As the years go by, they will learn to master the techniques.
Make it more pleasant experience. Let them enjoy the moment by helping them to have fun-filled activity. Getting a toothbrush with a cartoon character or puppet will be of big help. Let them watch a children TV show showing how to brush properly also helps or a group brushing with their siblings or with other children will surely make it more enjoyable.
Lastly, bring your children to visit Prescott Dental Arts. regularly. This is to ensure the dental health of your children will be monitored and to identify early if there will be any issue that may arise.
