Children's toothbrush can be not only a toy
Hygiene in the child's educational processshould occupy a sufficiently large place, because it is these skills that will allow the child to continue to maintain his health. This thesis can be safely attributed to dental hygiene. Of course, today the children's toothbrush is sold, as they say at every corner, but are our children able to use it not only as an amusing toy, but for their intended purpose?
It is clear that accustoming the child to cleanliness,including hygiene in the oral cavity, will allow the child to save not only a beautiful, attractive smile, but, above all, healthy teeth. Thus, the sooner we start the learning process, the more effective and high-quality the result will be. But in this situation, the question arises, and how to clean the child's teeth, especially if it is still very small? At the first stage, a parent finger, wrapped in sterile gauze, can be used as a cleaning tool, which, in turn, is moistened with warm boiled water. Light circular motions can not only clean the mouth, but, importantly, massage the gums. In addition to this method, at a later stage of forming a habit of brushing your teeth, you can give a child's toothbrush. It is clear that in this case, at least for now, the children's toothbrush is inappropriate, but a specialized brush-teetot fit as well as possible.
Parents need to clearly understand that the taskto explain how to properly brush your teeth completely and completely falls on their shoulders, and in this situation you will have to include in your work all your pedagogical skills, all your parents' patience and understanding. It is clear that the child is 2 years old when, in fact, he already needs to give his own brush with a very soft bristle, it's impossible to carry out hygienic measures for cleaning the oral cavity independently. It is parents who should help him at this stage, and so delicately and unobtrusively, so as not to discourage the child from continuing to repeat this procedure.
The next negative point, which, in principle,can adversely affect the quality of hygiene procedures is the psychology of a small person in terms of age and, above all, in his restlessness. It is clear that the cleaning of teeth in its ideal performance takes a fairly long period of time. In addition, children very often try to simplify their lives as much as possible in performing relatively complex manipulations, without evaluating the fact that quality, in the final analysis, may suffer. The point is that they will replace complex circular motions with simple translational ones in the horizontal plane. In this situation, the optimal solution to this problem is, of course, the use of such a device as a child's electric toothbrush, which will set the necessary movements of the bristles, which are optimal for young teeth and gums.
In addition to all of the above, parents inmust necessarily follow not only the teeth and gums of your child, but also the surface of the tongue. Very often at an early age, it becomes covered with a white bloom with abundant use of dairy and fermented milk products. At first, it can be removed with a standard sterilized gauze, which is moistened in a weak solution of soda, at a more adult age, a child's tooth electric brush with soft bristles can be used for this. In this case, it is worthwhile to control, firstly, the color of the plaque, if it is yellowish, then immediately it is necessary to consult a doctor, secondly, ease of removal, if it is not removed simply, it is also necessary to visit a specialist.
Brush your teeth, train your children, be healthy and happy.
