During the back-to-school transition, children often experience changes to their daily schedule and activities. These changes can have an impact on their oral health. As children and parents adjust to the new routine, a focus on dental hygiene should exist as well. Starting a routine on dental hygiene will help a child develop habits that go well into adulthood and results in fewer problems during the school year.
The rushed morning routine may leave little time for proper dental care, packed lunches and snacks can contribute to increased sugar consumption and potential tooth decay and new environments and interactions with peers can lead to hygiene habits being neglected. However, establishing a dental hygiene routine during this time sets the foundation for long-term oral health benefits. It ensures that children prioritise their dental care as an integral part of their daily routine.
Jordan Oral Care has shared some top tips below to help parents and kids establish a dental hygiene routine which helps ensure a confident smile and sets the foundation for healthy habits that will benefit them throughout their lives.
1.Brushing teeth twice a day: Encourage children to brush their teeth in the morning and before bed using Jordan Oral Care toothpaste.
2. Drinking water: Encourage water consumption throughout the day to rinse away food debris and keep the mouth hydrated.
3. Balanced diet: Promote a balanced diet with limited sugary snacks and drinks, as they can contribute to tooth decay.
4.Regular dental check-ups: Schedule dental appointments for routine cleanings and examinations to prevent and detect any dental issues.
5 Proper use of mouthguards: If your child participates in sports or other physical activities, ensure they wear a mouthguard to protect their teeth.
While all these routines may seem like a lot at first, everyone simply needs to get used to the adjustment. School years bring an adjustment for homework, wake up times, and school in general, so adding proper oral care into the mix should slot right in.
