Losing teeth is a big deal for kids. It marks the transition from baby to big kid! Our children excitedly await a visit from the Tooth Fairy after losing a tooth and we can use this interest and excitement to teach our kids more about the importance of their dental health and oral hygiene.
Below are a few ideas for how you can use the Tooth Fairy to teach your children how to better care for their smiles:
The Tooth Fairy tradition has been shown to foster goodwill towards dental hygiene for children. No matter what the Tooth Fairy leaves for your child, he or she will be more motivated than ever to brush and floss routinely. These habits begin in childhood, but will set the stage for good oral hygiene habits well into adulthood.
