Getting Your Kids to Brush

Parental involvement is the greatest and biggest impact or influence when it comes to children’s oral health. According to research and studies, over 95% of kids learn by what they see every day and not by what we tell them to do. For parents, it is very important not only model or demonstrate what a healthy oral regime looks like but also, parents need to participate in helping their children to create and experiment a daily routine that will work best for their child. Below is the list of some suggestions on how to create a wonderful and unique routine that a child will surely stick.

Have Del Mar Highlands Pediatric Dentistry talked to your kids about oral hygiene expectations.

Del Mar Highlands dentist is very much welcome and eager to share with your child about the importance of keeping their teeth and their gums healthy with the use of regular brushing and flossing.

Power Struggles 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 reliably.

If you wish to know more about the techniques on getting your kids to brush their teeth regularly, Del Mar Highlands Pediatric Dentistry is very happy to impart their knowledge regarding this concern. Don’t hesitate to visit us at Del Mar Highlands dental office now!
