No matter how young they are, it is important that you begin teaching your children the importance of keeping their mouth clean.
There is no better time to teach your children the value of brushing and flossing regularly. Taking him to his first dental visit might be one of the best decisions you could ever make as a parent. The experience will definitely be scary but having you around will surely help comfort your child.
Talking with the dental professional will teach your child the value of taking care of their oral health. As young as they are they are surely curious about why you tell them to brush their teeth twice a day or as often as after they eat. With an expert around, it would be much easier to explain the complicated process of how oral health care affects everything else in the person’s life.
Toddlers should brush their teeth after every meal and especially before they go to bed. Also, they should have dentist appointments twice every year. Children usually take after their parents and if parents love their children, they would help them understand the real value of having a good set of teeth aside from aesthetics.
