Mother’s Day Tips to Teach Your Child the Right Dental Habits Easily

“A mother is the best teacher to her children”

This age-old saying is perhaps the truest thing out there. This timeless saying also finds its relevance in the world of dentistry. A mother is the best person to teach her kids the right dental habits and lessons which effortlessly can last a lifetime.
 
Dr. Roozbeh D Vaziri - a prominent dentist in London - says that a mother has a great influence on her children as they are often directly influenced by her actions. “Lots of young parents keep asking me for tips that will help them to teach their youngsters the right way to take care of their teeth and the gums. Parenting is a massive task and it is often not enough to tell your child every time to brush their teeth properly or cut down on sweet foods. Rather, you’ve to motivate them,” says Dr. Vaziri.

In the following paragraphs the dentist shares some tips for parents that will help them teach the right dental habits to their children.

  • Never put your baby to sleep with a feeding bottle in the mouth: Even if the bottle contains milk and milk is a health drink, the sugary content present in it will cause damage to the child’s oral health throughout the night.
  • Help your kid to brush his/her teeth: It is never too early to start teaching your children how to care for their teeth. Even if your child’s first tooth is yet to erupt, clean his or her gums with a damp flannel every day. After the teeth have come out, you should help the youngsters with brushing their teeth till they turn about 8 years of age.
  • The day when your child turns into a fine young man or woman and likes his or her smile in the mirror, as a responsible parent, you will remember your contribution to that happiness.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Keeping this in mind, Dr. Vaziri shares this topic to show his respect to the eternal Mother and Child bonding. You can meet the dentist at the Confidental Dental Clinic, which is located on Abbey Road in Wimbledon. The patient-centric practice operates from 09:00 am to 07:00 pm on weekdays, while on Saturdays the timing shifts from 09:00 am to 02:00 pm.
