Great dental health begins as a child. That is when many habits are picked up. In addition, healthy baby teeth are important for adult teeth. For tips on getting kids interested in dental care, keep reading! At Bensalem Family Dentistry in Bensalem, PA, we want all of our patients to benefit from good at-home dental care.
Many children will do great once they know the reasoning behind good dental care. Animated dental videos are both educational and fun to watch for kids. They will then know all about how brushing and flossing help keep away cavities.
Let Them Pick
When picking up dental supplies for your child, bring them along so they can pick. There are many toothbrushes with their favorite characters. There is even fun-flavored toothpaste and floss. Letting them pick may get them more excited about it.
Reward Good Behavior
Many kids respond well to rewards. A chart may be helpful to keep track of brushing before bed. After so many nights in a row, you can take them to the park or let them choose dinner. It’s great for getting kids into good habits. Rewards for healthy reports from the dentist can also make kids with dental anxiety feel better about dental visits.
Good dental habits start at a young age. To schedule your child’s next cleaning and examination, call Bensalem Family Dentistry in Bensalem, PA at (215) 638-9952. More information about our office can be found on our website, www.bensalemfamilydentistry.com.
