Healthy Kid Teeth Care Tips for Parents:
Maintaining clean teeth for the little ones and helping them to develop healthy attitudes toward keeping their pearly whites cavity-free is just another one of our many parental duties. But luckily we've got all kinds of character toothbrushes (Barbie in my house), deliciously flavored toothpastes and clever kiddie floss picks to help us help our munchkins smile bright. A few things I've learned along the way from experts and friends to keep kiddo teeth cavity free:
1) Stay away from gummy vitamins as the sugars in them stick to vulnerable baby teeth and make it easy for cavities to form. My daughter started to develop a tiny bit of decay on one of her molars before her dentist asked if we were using gummy vitamins, which we then switched immediately to chewable ones, in which the sugars melt away in the mouth instead of sticking to the teeth.
2) When your children eat chewy candies or fruits (e.g. dried fruits, Starbursts, etc.) have them floss right away. Kids floss picks are very easy for adults to use and children like that they're flavored.
3) Kids need help from their parents until the age of nine brushing of their teeth as they don't have the motor skills until they are older to brush accurately around all sides of their beautiful whites. And of course, try to have your kids brush their teeth twice a day.
