Caring for your children’s teeth from an early age is of the utmost importance.
Children’s teeth need to be looked after gently and carefully. By the age of three, most children will have all of their first primary teeth. The care and health of these teeth will also impact on the health of their permanent teeth – which need to last a lifetime. At Broxbourne Dental Care, we’ve been providing children’s dental treatments to those across Hertfordshire and Essex for many years, and are a reliable dental practice for when you want only the very best for your little one.
Follow these three simple tips for your children’s dental hygiene and help make things just that little bit easier and fun:
- Brushing to a beat – To help your child enjoy brushing their teeth, why not turn on their favourite song. If they start brushing from the very beginning of the song to the end, it will help make the time go much faster and they will get their two minutes of brushing done in no time.
- Being there – Young children learn best by imitation. Brushing together can help make brushing a fun part of your child’s daily routine. Parents will need to help until they feel confident that their child can reach all the tricky spots and brush with confidence.
- Healthy eating – Healthy eating habits are beneficial to your child’s overall well-being. Encourage your child to eat healthy snacks and discuss their food choices with them.
