When I was a kid, I brushed my teeth on a regular basis for the most part. I especially brushed them thoroughly when it was time to go to the dentist because I wanted a good report and NO cavities! However, I was one of those unfortunate kids who would brush their teeth on a regular basis and STILL get cavities and might even require root canal treatment. Not a ton of cavities, but enough to where I’m nervous now every time I set foot in a general dentistry office.
As a mom, I make sure our kids brush their teeth well. Not only so they have bright, white, healthy-looking teeth, but so they don’t end up having to go to the dentist for fillings or dental implants like I had to as a kid. I also bring up my future in-law’s pet – Buster. I swear to you, he was the sweetest dog ever and I loved seeing him, however, he also had the worst teeth ever. I could use those moments and get grossed out, but instead, I used them as teaching moments. Whenever teeth brushing became an issue, I would remind them of Buster’s rotting teeth and bad breath and that if they don’t brush their teeth, they’ll end up with the same thing. Needless to say, they have pretty healthy, clean teeth!
