Developing good dental care habits at a very young age will teach your child to take care of their teeth for a lifetime. While healthy habits may be easy to start, it’s not so simple make them routines. This is especially true for children who tend to challenge their parents’ guidelines. Fortunately, you can help your child learn to love to brush by following these few simple tips from dentists that turn tooth brushing into a treat.

Get an Early Start – By beginning a regular brushing routine when your child is very young, it’s simpler to make it a habit and make it an easy experience. Talk to an affordable dentist for good guidelines on children’s dental care.

Let Your Child Choose – Kids love to pick out their clothes and choose their favorite candy, so give them the same sense of control when it comes to selecting their toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. This will make them feel more grown up and make them look forward to brushing.

Pick The Perfect Time – Schedule a regular time for tooth brushing before activities your child the likes, such as playtime or story time.

Make Brushing a Blast – Show kids that taking caring of their teeth can be fun by playing upbeat music while they brush or making up silly songs about brushing their teeth. These simple tricks will make your children want to care of their smiles.

Reward Their Success – Start a chart to track each time that your child brushes and add a colorful sticker to represent each successful experience. When your child accumulates a certain number of stickers, treat them to a small reward.

Stick to a Schedule – Set aside regular times for brushing teeth to start your child on a steady schedule. By being consistent, your child will know what to expect and learn that dental care is a daily part of life.

Get the Family In on the Fun – The family that brushes together learns to brush forever, so gather the group and take care of your teeth as a family.

Be a Brushing Role Model – Set a good example by showing your kids that you brush and care for your teeth every day. This will encourage them to follow your lead and develop better brushing habits.
