One of the most crucial habits to develop for your children is good dental hygiene. Maintaining a clean, healthy mouth will help a child as s/he grows into adulthood and begins a life outside of a parent’s home.
But while you’re working on those good habits, an unhealthy fear of the dentist or the dentist’s office can take root, sometimes with no apparent reason!
Your child’s teeth are a reflection of their growth and maturity; a signal that those sweet newborn and infant days are coming to an end. New things are on the horizon when that first tooth breaks through: solid foods, teething rings, and even bite marks on your furniture!
We all know how important good dental hygiene is, especially for our children. Even before their adult teeth come in, the health of their smile is determined by good habits and proper cleaning. Getting your kids to take care of their teeth can be a chore, especially since brushing is usually done in the morning and before bed, which are two of the busiest times in most households.
