Although I love my daughter, I have never loved how sneaky she can be. After she kept coming home from dental checkups with cavities, I told her that candy had to stay out of our house until her checkups improved. Well, she found a loophole in our agreement, and she kept eating candy at friends' houses and at school. I realized I was fighting a losing battle, so I asked her dentist what we could do. He told me that she was a good candidate for a dental sealant that coated her teeth and protected them from decay. I could not believe there was such an easy way to help improve her smile. I had the sealant applied to her molars, and she hasn't had a cavity since! I created this blog to spread the word about how well dental sealants can work to help preserve children's smiles.

While you might run into a few bumps in the road, there are a few ways you can make brushing teeth a fun experience and ensure your child is brushing for the right amount of time.
Every child responds differently to parenting techniques, so it's important to find what works for you and stick to it.

Instead of wrestling your child to the ground every morning and evening, try making teeth brushing appealing by using one of these approaches:
Teaching your child good hygiene may seem like a long, fruitless task, but it can be made easier with a few changes in your strategy. Instead of treating it like a chore, make your child feel that this is special one-on-one time with you. Offer some sort of reward or distraction. Soon, brushing teeth will be a positive experience for both of you.
