Oral Hygiene for the Entire Family
It may seem like a daunting task to try to keep the entire family’s smiles at their best, but with some of our Dental Choice Canada tips, you do not have to worry. There are easy ways that the whole family can come together to achieve healthier smiles, including:
- Timing How Long You Brush- head to the store and find a fun timer to use for 2- minute tooth brushing intervals. Having a timer can keep everyone motivated to brush the entire time, two times a day. In addition, there are new toothbrushes available that have timers built in, which can be an exciting part of dental hygiene.
- Cook Together- this tip may seem out of the blue, but oral health and general health are strongly connected. Head to the grocery store for a family trip to create some healthy recipes. Learn the importance of fresh fruits and vegetables and learn the ways that you can integrate them into a multitude of recipes for healthier smiles and better health.
- Floss- flossing is an important part of any healthy dental hygiene regimen. Teach your kids to brush and floss together as part of a complete healthy habit.
- Create a Reward System- if everyone in the family brushes and flosses twice a day, every day, each week, think of a fun activity that everyone can do together as a reward. Oral health can be a great way to bond together—try it today!
