We hope you enjoyed all of your delicious treats from Halloween, but now it’s time to brush! Making sure that your child takes proper care of their teeth is crucial to their overall well-being. Today is National Brush Day, and we’d like to take this opportunity to remind parents and kids of the importance of regular oral hygiene and the importance of brushing for two minutes, twice a day. Building good habits at an early age sets kids up for a healthier life and a smile.
Here are some ways you can celebrate National Brush Day and kick off your child’s road to a healthy mouth:
Make sure to brush with them 2Min2x every day!
Teach them about proper brushing techniques:
Place the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums.
Gently move the brush back and forth in short (tooth-wide) strokes.
Brush the outer, inner and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.
Tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes to clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth.
Brush their tongue to remove bacteria.
Don’t forget to floss after your thorough brushing to make sure you get all of the leftover remnants out of their teeth
Enjoy your brushing celebration! For more toothy tips, make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. For more information about our pediatric dental practice, visit www.supermolar.com.
