The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends supervised brushing till age nine. The biggest influence in children's oral health is parental involvement, Over 95 96 of kids learn by what they are modeled, not by whet we tell them to do. It is essential that parents not only model what a healthy oral regime looks like but that they also help to create a routine that works best for their child. Here ore some suggestions on how to create a routine that will stick.

Make it Fun

Parents can sing a song or make a rhyme about tooth brushing while their child is brushing. Parents can also brush and search for the germs hiding in the mouth. There are also a number of books you can read to kids about brushing. The answer lies in exploring these options figuring out which ones work best for you and your family.

I’ll Brush Yours and You Brush Mine

Have the parents brush the child's teeth and have your child tell you if you missed any spots. Switch and Repeat. Another alternative is to come in at the end of your child's brushing and act as a street cleaner, Give your child a final tooth 'sweep" (make sure to do the sound effect of the street cleaner).

Offer Choices

Example: Ask your child, "Do you want to brush/floss your upper teeth or lower teeth first?" You can also have your child pick a fun toothbrush, or have them pick out the toothpaste they would like to use.

Have your Dentist talk to your kids about Oral Hygiene Expectations

Have your dentist share with your child about why it is important to keep their teeth and their gums healthy with regular brushing and flossing.
