In hopes to avoid having their children contribute to a nationwide average of about half when it comes to adolescent tooth decay, parents are tasked with developing methods to ensure their children are spending ample time in front of the mirror with toothbrush in hand. While it’s true that dental hygiene is an important part of most adults’ routines, it doesn’t come so naturally for children. In most instances, it requires parents to do something unique to encourage their children to brush. This can be done through making it fun by any means possible, making brushing a morning and nightly family tradition or allowing their children to express themselves through things like their toothbrush or toothpaste flavor. Whatever the tactic might be, it’s up to parents to ensure they’re putting in the best effort to enforce their children to establish these routines. If you are one of the many parents struggling with this, please see the resource featured alongside this post for more information on how to aid your little ones.
