Each day offers an opportunity for your child to learn new things. Last week's lesson was about twisting, licking and dunking a cookie on a glass of milk. The other day was about making “bunny ear loops” to tie shoelaces. With so many things that you can teach your child, perhaps you could also demonstrate how to take care of one's teeth. A young age is ideal for developing the habit of brushing and flossing.
According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, having healthy and strong teeth is important to your child's overall health. Teaching the importance of taking care of one's teeth not only programs a mental attitude toward dental hygiene but also helps develop a sense of responsibility, particularly that of taking care of one's body.
Developing these good dental habits at a young age can help your child have healthy teeth.
