Getting your kids to brush their teeth can be a challenge. However, getting them to brush them correctly can be an even bigger task. Each day, children juggle school, activities, and family events, all while trying to learn to take care of themselves. In order to make this easier for them, here are our O’Donnell Family Dentistry tips for teaching your kids to brush and brush correctly.
With one set of adult teeth to spare, you cannot afford to miss your daily opportunities to brush, floss, rinse and repeat at least once before bedtime. You also should keep your appointment with your dentist at least twice a year as recommended by the American Dental Association. This is to ensure you tackle any plaque or tartar in hard-to-reach places that you missed when brushing or flossing.
