Reviewing Your Child’s Brushing Efforts

When you ask your child to take care of a chore, you may find that you need to check in on them to make sure they are taking on the task you asked of them. Because it takes less time and occurs so frequently, you may not think to check on your kids as they care for their teeth. Unfortunately, this can lead to issues, as kids can depend on continued guidance to ensure that they are truly doing a good job caring for their growing smiles. Your check-ins and instructions can have lasting impact. You can also count on your Rochester, MN dentist’s office to help by providing instructions and guidance during regular pediatric dental exams!

Is Your Child Really Doing Enough To Keep Their Teeth Clean?

From the time you hand off the responsibility of brushing and flossing to your kids, they will need to stick to a good routine to avoid problems with cavities and gum disease. This is why it is important that you take time in teaching them, and why you should be careful not to pass this task onto them at too young an age. Even when you are sure that they are ready, not checking in on them can be a mistake. Leaving them unsupervised means letting poor habits form without correction, and that means kids can have more difficulties and need more involved oral health services during their pediatric dental exams!

Monitoring Kids And Providing Good Habits To Model

One easy way to help kids maintain good habits is to join them when you brush and floss your teeth. In doing so, you can show off what they should be doing to fully clean their smile. Taking at least two minutes to brush, working to reach even the hard to reach areas, and being careful not to move the toothbrush too aggressively will show them how they should proceed. You can also help them by modeling your flossing habits for them. Even when you are not cleaning your teeth with them, you can “drop in” to see that they are doing as well as they should at protecting their growing smiles.

Regular Dental Exams Give Kids More Opportunities To Learn The Importance Of Good Oral Hygiene

At their regular pediatric dental exams, kids can enjoy more guidance about brushing and flossing. Beyond simply offering instructions, we can provide them with information about the importance of cavity prevention, and we can offer parents tips on how they can help their kids take care of their smiles at home. Remember that our office is here for patients of all ages, which means we can address your oral health needs and even work with you on making cosmetic smile improvements!
