Taking care of your child’s dental health will protect them from cavities, gum disease and extraction. Therefore, it’s vital for parents to train their kids how to take care of their teeth.

Key takeaways:

– Avoid introducing sugary foods to children under the age of 5 and when you do, ensure that intake is minimal.

– Train them oral hygiene practices and discourage bad habits like chewing on toys.

– End their fear of the dentist by playing ‘dentist’ with them and being a role model.

Also, look out for teeth-grinding and GERD.
