One thing I do not have to worry about is my kids brushing their teeth. So far, I’ve never had to force or struggle with them to do it. It’s habit they have formed young and it will make their lives so much easier. How did I accomplish this? I’m not sure I did anything except to let them know the importance of being healthy and they’ll get cavities. Don’t forget to have them brush their tongues too!
Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. This year’s theme is “Join the Super Smile Team.”
BUDDY wants to share his own dental care tips too! Remember that Tyrannosaurus Rex replaced their teeth throughout their lives, but humans only get two sets so it is especially important to take good care of them!
Follow these helpful tips for strong teeth and a healthy smile!
1. Twice a day: Brush your teeth when you wake up and before you go to bed.
2. Take your time: Brush your teeth for 2 minutes and be sure to include your tongue!
3. Be kind to your gums: Brush with a soft bristle toothbrush.
4. Get the hard to reach places: Floss your teeth at bedtime.
5. See your Dentist twice a year!
