It is extremely important that you teach your child how to brush their teeth at a young age to prevent them from having tooth decay and other dental complications in the future. There are different ways you can teach your child how to properly brush their teeth and to reach all the spots they need to. Here are some ideas:

Set an example – Brush your teeth in front of your kids with a good technique for at least 2 minutes. The more often they see you brushing your teeth, the more likely they are to imitate you.

Make it fun – Brushing doesn’t have to be a struggle. There are different apps you can get on your phone or tablet with songs and games to help them brush daily.

Let them pick – There are tons of different brushes and toothpastes available in the market for kids. Let your children select their toothbrush and toothpaste of preference. They might get more excited about the idea if they use a toothbrush with characters or a theme from a favorite movie.
