The Top Three Ways to Instill Healthy Dental Habits in Your Kids

Abundant Dental Care’s dental clinic offers great tips for helping create great dental habits for your children and their baby teeth.

Use good teeth cleaning techniques

As your baby becomes a toddler be sure to use a soft toothbrush to clean their teeth. Don’t use an aggressive back and forth brushing. The best way to clean the teeth is by moving the brush up and down in a circular motion.

Create healthy eating habits.

Have set times for eating throughout the day. Snacking all day nurtures the bacteria that destroys teeth.Make sure to give your children water to stay hydrated between mean. Milk and juice should only be offered as part of a meal or snack.

Make your children’s dentist appointments a priority.

This helps to get your child used to the dentist and dental procedures early in life. This also helps to solve dental problems before they become too painful or traumatizing to treat.
