It isn’t the easiest of time during your life when it comes to looking after your children’s teeth, but if you love them dearly, you are going to have to teach them how to do things correctly so that their teeth grow strong, true and healthy. Having a good dentist beside you is the first thing you should do once your child starts to teethe and from then on, the lessons begin. Teaching your kids to brush properly is of the utmost importance, as is a good diet and warning them of the dangers of tooth decay. You will nurse them through some choppy oral waters as they grow; their secondary teeth, orthodontic treatments, and if you haven’t had enough of them and kicked them out, their wisdom teeth as well. However, as we should all know, children don’t do rules very well as they like to flaunt the laws you lay down to them and rebel; they will also have a fantastic love affair with everything sweet and sugary, (although to be fair, who doesn’t!). As long as they grasp the importance of brushing their teeth, you might be able to help them avoid tooth decay. However, there is a super ‘ace’ you can play at a particular junction in your kid’s lives: when the secondary teeth have all come through, get them down to the dentists and have them kitted out with dental sealants; these will protect the surfaces of the teeth from bacteria for a good 5 years or so and you will never have to worry about tooth decay.
