6 Simple & Easy Children’s Dental Hygiene Tips for the Busy Parent.

Why start young?

When brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are a part of a child’s normal routine with mommy or daddy, fits and tantrums are prevented from becoming a regular morning or bedtime hassle. You’re welcome, parents!

Also, proper care of baby teeth will prevent cavities that could spread to other teeth, causing early decay, speech defects, premature tooth loss, and crooked or weak adult teeth. All of these factors lead to an unattractive and unhealthy smile that could rob your children of self-confidence and cause serious health complications in their youth and adult life.

We’d never want to let our children head down that path! That’s why we’ve compiled a list of six easy tips for all you busy parents and educators reading our blog.

How-to Tips for Busy Parents

When Your Child is Teething:
1. Gently wipe the gum and tooth surface with a damp cloth to remove bacteria at least twice a day after nursing.
2. Gently massage surrounding gum area with a clean finger.
3. Use chilled (not frozen) teething toys to soothe anxiety.

When Brushing & Flossing:
4. Set the example early. Brush with your baby in arms, or have them sit and watch you brush and floss.
5. Set the routine. When his or her first teeth come out, have your child brush and floss with you in the morning and at bedtime.
6. Sing songs together!
