I really appreciate Dr. Dodson and my new front tooth. When I came to see Dr. Dodson I had a missing front tooth. I had worn a flipper for years to fill in my smile. It was uncomfortable and I was very aware of it. He made me a beautiful new permanent tooth that matches my other teeth perfectly! Now

Let Your Kids Take Charge of Their Teeth

Each day offers an opportunity for your kid to learn new things. Last week’s lesson was about twisting, licking, and dunking his cookie on a glass of milk. The other day was about making “bunny ear loops” to tie his shoelaces. With so many things that you can teach him, perhaps you could also show him how to take care of his teeth. His young age is ideal for developing his habit of brushing and flossing.

According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, having healthy and strong teeth is important to your kid’s overall health. Teaching him the importance of taking care of his teeth not only programs his mental attitude toward dental hygiene but also helps him develop his sense of responsibility, particularly that of taking care of his body.

  • Brush regularly: Ideally, brush twice a day—after breakfast and before going to bed at night. Brush not only the front teeth but also those at the back. Use gentle strokes to avoid hurting the gums. Also, don’t forget to brush the tongue.
  • Use a toothbrush with soft bristles: Your kid’s gums are tender. He could get hurt if he uses a toothbrush with hard bristles. Remember to replace his toothbrush after every three months.
  • Dental floss and antibacterial mouthwash: Dental floss helps remove excess food particles lodged between the teeth. Thereafter, use mouthwash to rinse out bacteria and plaque. Ask your dentist for the ideal mouth rinse for your kid.

Developing these good dental habits at his young age can help your kid have healthy teeth.
