Teaching your kids to brush their teeth effectively. Knowing how to brush effectively is important in having proper dental care habits. When first learning how to brush their teeth on their own, kids tend not to brush correctly. Therefore dental decay issues may still arise. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is the standard advise. Though some dental experts recommend brushing after every meal whenever possible. The standard brushing time is at least three minutes. For children that can seem like a very long time so here are some tips.

If you have a fun kitchen timer that they like you can set it for three minutes. Another option is to play a song on the radio. There are kids friendly stations like Radio Disney average song time is 3 1/2 minutes. Teach your child to thoroughly brush their teeth. Show them to brush along the gum line, and to angle the toothbrush slightly towards the gums. It can be hard to tell but try your best to tell them not to brush too roughly. Get them focus on cleaning every tooth surface and teach them to gentle brush their tongue to scrape off bacteria that can cause bad breath. You want to replace their toothbrush every three to four months. If need be have their dentist show them how to brush their teeth at their dental check up.
