Boise Dentists Encourage Parents to Stress Proper Oral Hygiene Early

Parents with young children need to set a good example for daily brushing and flossing. Since little ones can’t brush and floss on their own teeth perfectly, parents should be involved in brushing and flossing until a child reaches the ages of 8 years old.

Young children learn best by watching and following their parents’ actions. They will be more likely to continue good dental hygiene if it has been set as a good habit from early on. Start encouraging your young one to participate in brushing as soon as they are comfortable holding a toothbrush.

Trust us, it will make both you and your children’s dental health much more enjoyable!
