How to Encourage Good Oral Hygiene Habits in Children

Most people go to the dentist for a regular check-up because they know how important it is to have good oral health. It is said that children learn from seeing. So, parents must teach their children by example. When children see that their parents care about their oral hygiene then they will care about theirs.

Here are 6 ways parents can promote good oral hygiene with their children:

  1. Brush and floss along with your children and make sure that they see you enjoying it and discuss with them why.
  2. Take your children with you to the dentist and show them why it’s important to see the dentist.
  3. Encourage good healthy eating practices and discuss why it’s important to your teeth.
  4. Discuss oral hygiene with your children, if it’s important to you, it will be important to them.
  5. Practice smiling with them in the mirror to show them why their smile is important.
  6. Take them to the Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, as early as 7 to start a healthy orthodontic treatment plan.

When to teach your child the importance of dental health

It is never too early to teach your child the importance of dental health, and not just tell them but show them why it’s important. Teaching good dental health practices in your child is a practice that will pay off with healthy gums and teeth, and it will also increase their self-esteem and self-respect. People who can smile in the mirror with pride can smile at anyone with pride.

Let Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics help you give your child the smile they deserve. Their self-esteem and self-respect depend on it. You’re not in this alone, contact their Miami, Brickell, or Weston dental offices to learn more about how Dr. Yazji and her orthodontic team can add value to your child’s smile!
