ORAL HYGIENE TIPS FOR KIDS

An effective way to get children interested in good oral hygiene is to be a good example for them. If they see adults taking care of their teeth, they are more likely to take care of their own teeth.
In addition, the “tell show do method” is a good way to teach young children and toddlers the proper techniques of good oral hygiene. This helps them to hear, see and practice the correct motions themselves, which reinforces good habits. Learn more about the tell show do method.
Remember that the proper technique of brushing and flossing is very important. Make sure to use a child-sized, soft-bristled toothbrush and a small amount of toothpaste, and don’t let them swallow any excess toothpaste. It’s a good idea to have children practice rinsing and spitting with water before trying it with toothpaste.
You can also make a child’s oral hygiene routines more fun so that they will want to brush and floss more. Here are some ways to keep your child engaged during brushing and flossing:
1- Let children pick out their own toothbrush toothpaste and floss. They can choose colorful floss, an electric toothbrush or toothbrush that lights up or has a character on it
2- Let children put their own toothpaste on the toothbrush themselves, but be sure to supervise so that they don’t use too much
3- Make a game out of brushing by singing a song or telling a story while your child brushes.
