Your child’s life is probably filled with things that he or she naturally sees as fun or exciting.
For instance, no one has to teach their child to jump into a mud puddle…they instinctively seem to know that getting muddy is awesome.
You also don’t have to do much convincing to get them to eat candy. Most kids are born candy fanatics.
But so many things in a child’s life do require convincing…and teaching…and coaching.
Like washing hands. And using good table manners. And proper dental hygiene.
Encouraging your child to take good care of their teeth can be quite a challenge. There’s just not a lot about brushing, flossing, and avoiding sweets that screams “FUN!” to a child.
But there are some ways that the concept of dental hygiene can become more familiar and understandable to your child.
What You Need:
It is so important for all children to understand the importance of eating sweets in moderation. A simple craft that is fun and stimulating can be an avenue for you to discuss these things with your child.
Once the craft has been completed, sit down and share a healthy snack together. As you’re eating, you can praise your child for his hard work and let him know that what he is eating is making his teeth very happy.
We here at Montgomery Dentistry have made it our mission to assist our patients in maintaining great dental health…and dental health and habits start in childhood.
