Offering dental health services to children of all ages (0-100) is our passion! In celebration of National Children’s Dental Health Month, we have compiled a list of some useful ideas and tips, that we hope may help you find the best way to teach your kiddo how to properly brush and care for their teeth. While teaching a particularly young child the right way to brush, floss, and develop a good oral health care routine may seem like a daunting task. But, sometimes a little imagination and a few simple changes can make all the difference!
Kids and Teeth
At Premier Dental, we offer dental health services for kiddos of ages 0 to 100! So, oral health and patient education is very important to us!
When it comes to children’s oral health, it’s certainly always a good idea to foster the habit of practicing proper oral hygiene from an early age as this helps cement the fundamental nature of oral health. However, when it comes to teaching children exactly how and why it’s necessary to correctly care for their teeth, things are likely to get a bit trickier! Surely as you know by now, teaching kids is not an exact science, and while there are countless beliefs and theories on the subject, finding the right approach can be difficult. Keeping this in mind, according to many primary school administrators, young children are often creatures habit, and thereby learn most effectively when taught in repetition or in a type of pattern. Obviously, this may require a bit of creativity and certainly some old fashion “hands-on parenting” but taking the time to teach your child the fundamentals of oral hygiene is truly a fun and rewarding endeavor!
