Ready, set, engage!

Good oral health habits need to start at an early age. Brushing and flossing should be an integral part of your child’s everyday routine. But when your 2-year-old has the attention span of well, a 2-year-old, it can be hard to engage them in the important task at hand!  The key is finding a method that works for your child. Here are a few ideas to help get your child excited about fighting cavities! Start by letting your child pick out his or her own toothbrush. With all the fun colors and characters available, your child is sure to find one to his or her liking. Also, keeping a few different flavors of children’s toothpaste around will enable your child to choose, thus encouraging involvement. Children often mimic the actions of their parents or older siblings. So when you are in the bathroom brushing and flossing your own teeth, invite your child to watch. Be sure to portray brushing as a fun and exciting thing to do rather than a chore. You can also try playing your child’s favorite music and having him or her brush for the duration of a favorite song (three to four minutes). If your child needs a visual aid to demonstrate the importance of brushing, there are a number of products that stain or discolor the plaque build-up on your child’s teeth with a florescent color. This makes it easily visible and empowers more active brushing. Explain to your child the importance of getting rid of the bacteria by brushing and flossing every day. Delta Dental also offers fun games and interactive online activities that teach children about the importance of taking good care of their smile. Visit and join the fun!
