Children & Teens

Have Your Dentist Talk to Your Kids about Oral Hygiene Expectations
Have your dentist (the expert) share with your child about why it’s important to keep their teeth and their gums healthy with regular brushing and flossing.

Power to Control with Older Kids

If and when you get into an argument with your older child during brushing, instead of quarreling with them, give them a toothbrush with toothpaste on it. Be sure to utter no words, just gently hand it to them. Another effective method for older children is using rinse that changes colors in dental areas that aren’t cleaned thoroughly. This way, they’ll see the amount of plaque on their teeth and might inspire them to brush and floss more consistently. Pediatric dentists at Del Mar Highlands Dentistry can talk to you on how to overcome your power struggles with your older kids.

Also, have our dental specialist converse with your children about oral hygiene desires.We will share with your child the importance of keeping their teeth and gums healthy with regular brushing and flossing.
