Routine dental care is one of the most important things a child can do to achieve an overall healthy lifestyle, but most would rather eat more candy than brush their teeth twice a day.
For parents, this can lead to a daily struggle and may be a source of stress. However, there are ways to make brushing one's teeth a bit more fun.
First, parents should strive to brush their teeth with their child, making it a ritual the both can share. This may help the child realize that dental care is something everyone has to do, as opposed to an order being barked down by their parent.
Another way to spark some interest in dental care could be through song. Raffi, a songwriter who specializes in children's song, has a tune titled "Brush Your Teeth" that incorporates the sound of brushing into the track. Incorporating the song into a child's routine dental care may get them used to brushing their teeth everyday.Past studies have found that children who adhere to a dental care routine early in life will continue the habit in adulthood.
