16 May How to get your kid to be a tooth hero
You want your children to have the best start in life, as do the team at Boulton Dental. That’s why it’s important to ensure your children learn to look after their teeth from an early age. At Boulton Dental in Merewether, we want your children to have a positive experience each time they visit us. We have gone to some trouble to make our practice a relaxed and comfortable place for your child, we even have iPads for them to use in the waiting area and TVs on the roof with headphones to watch during their visit.
Taking care of teeth from a young age is vital, to help you and your child to do this we have developed a program just for kids that will help them learn about their teeth and how to brush and floss properly. We also give the kids certificates to indicate milestones during the program.
See below some top tips for kids to help them to be a tooth hero!
STEP 1: Put a pea size amount of toothpaste onto your brush.
STEP 2: Brush the flat part of your teeth.
STEP 3. Make circles on the outside of your teeth!
STEP 4. Move the brush forwards and backwards on the inside of your teeth.
STEP 5. Spit the foam into the sink (but don’t rinse) and you’re done!
