Oral hygiene is incredibly important when considering the number of health issues that it can cause as children grow older. Even still, it can be nearly impossible for parents to instill a brushing habit that will stand the test of time in their children. However, there are certain tips that make for an easier time in establishing these habits. Making brushing a game, or in other words, making it a fun experience, can make a difference. Similarly, brushing together can show children that they can model their good behavior by mimicking their parents. As these family moments are happening, be sure to provide plenty of positive reinforcement, like a few words of encouragement, to further glorify in their behavior. Though they don’t realize it now, your children will thank you for being so insistent in the future.
