Teaching Children to Brush Their Teeth Properly
When you are teaching your children how to take care of their teeth you want to make sure that
you understand how you are going to be wise about this process. Take the time that you need to
develop good dental hygiene habits with them early so that they will last throughout their life.




As you are teaching your children how to have good dental hygiene habits, you should be sure
that you keep your benefit in mind. When you are teaching the children how to take care of their
teeth you will ensure that you do not have to pay as much money for dental bills in the long run.

You also want to make sure that you take the time that you need to understand that you can
prevent a lot of diseases in your kids’ mouths when you teach them dental hygiene habits. Take
the time that you need to be sure that you will develop and solidify these habits very early.

Teach Proper Brushing Habits

First, you should be sure that you are teaching them how to brush properly. When your child is
young you want to make sure that you start teaching them how to brush so that you can be sure
that they are brushing properly and they get into the habit of brushing twice a day.

It is important that you make brushing a positive experience when you are teaching your child to
brush. As you are teaching your children you should make sure that you are wise about the way
that you are going to get excited for this time so that your child will look forward to this time.

Getting Your Kids Excited About Brushing Their Teeth
There are some ways that you can make sure that your child is going to be excited about
brushing. You can take him or her to the store to buy their toothbrush and you can let them buy
whatever toothbrush that they want so that you can be sure that they like the toothbrush.




Understand how important it is for them to be excited about their toothbrush. Then, you should
be sure that they are only allowed to touch the toothbrush and use the toothbrush when they are
brushing their teeth with you so that the toothbrush becomes something that special.

Find A Good Toothbrush For Your Kids

You should also make sure that you find a toothbrush that has a soft bristle. When you are not
using a soft bristled brush you will find that you may hurt your children’s gums because the
bristles will scratch the gums rather than gently massaging them while you are brushing.

As you are brushing you should also make sure that you are using the right toothpaste. When
you are learning how you are going to be wise about finding the right toothpaste you should
consult your children’s physician so that you know that the toothpaste is going to be safe.




There are a lot of people that do not understand how they are going to be wise about the way that
they are working with their children while brushing. When your child is young, two minutes may
be a very long time to sit through brushing and you may want to shorten the length of brushing.
Reward Your Child

You should also make sure that you take the time that you need to understand how you are going
to be wise about the way that you will reward your child. When you are rewarding your child
you should be sure that you are making the reward a healthy reward rather than candy.

Take the time that you need to be sure that your child gets excited about the time that you spend
brushing. If your child complains about brushing you can be sure that you are able to encourage
them with the reward that you have laid out for brushing their teeth every day morning and night.




As you brush you want to make sure that you eventually have them brush their own teeth. Teach
them how they can brush in circles so that you can be sure that the entire tooth is going to be
covered by the toothbrush and that all of the plaque that can be brushed off is brushed off.

Make sure that you realize that you are going to want to keep checking on their teeth brushing
habits. Eventually you will also want to make sure that you can teach them how to floss their
teeth consistently.
