At Three Rivers Family Dentistry in Murfreesboro, TN. We recommend that you help your child brush his teeth until he is seven. When he’s finally old enough to do it alone here are some ways to help him be independent.
- Set the example for your child. Your children watch you all day long. They talk like you, act like you, they are always doing what you are doing. Brush your teeth every day so you child can see that it’s an important part of a daily routine,
- Make it a family affair. Make it fun. Show them mom and dad being silly while brushing their teeth. Laugh, dance, do whatever you can to make it a fun family time.
- Don’t worry about toothpaste. If your child can’t stand toothpaste don’t worry, just give them a wet toothbrush. Right now, all you need to focus on is making it a habit. Wet brushing is better than no brushing.
- Be positive with your child. Don’t get frustrated or impatient if teeth brushing takes too long. Enjoy it and relax and and they will enjoy it too.
