Children are sometimes lazy when it comes to brushing their teeth. Even if they fully understood the importance of maintaining clean teeth, they do not like brushing. They sometimes bluff and tell you that they have already brushed, even if they really haven’t. Caring for your children’s teeth means encouraging them to brush regularly. You really have to check on them if they have brushed or not. Of course, if your child is a toddler, then you should be the one to brush their teeth for them.
Children are wise and got a handful of tricks to use on you. To counter that, you should also have your own to use on them. Here are few tricks to make them get busted on brushing:
Good oral hygiene is the best way to keep your child’s teeth healthy. Training your child to brush and floss regularly will become a good habit (daily routine) and will help him avoid plaque and tooth decay. But remember this is not enough, you should also take him regularly for dental exams and dental cleanings. Your dentist will help you take care of your child’s teeth and teach him or her the proper way of brushing and flossing. American dental Association recommends a routine check-up and dental cleaning every 6 months.
