Even though your child's baby teeth will start to fall off after they turn 5, taking care of their hygiene is essential for the health of their adult teeth. If you don't, your child can develop cavities and gum diseases, which can be very painful for them. If you want your child to have good dental hygiene, it is important that you lead by example.
Tips for Proper Brushing
If you want to make brushing time fun for your child, you can start by introducing fun fruity flavors of toothpaste to them, like strawberry, grape, or watermelon.
Tips for Flossing
Flossing is an essential part of your child's dental hygiene. It can prevent food being stuck in between the child's teeth that can lead to cavities. Even before your child's teeth start growing next to each other, it is time to start flossing.
