It’s never too early to start teaching your kids how to take care of their teeth, and tooth brushing worksheets are a great way for them to learn.
By starting at an early age, you can teach valuable dental health techniques that will last your child a lifetime. Kool Smiles has all of the tools you need to get started.
It’s important for your child to have a healthy mouth, even when they have just one tooth. That’s why we’ve created a series of fun activity worksheets for your children to learn about important dental hygiene and habits at an early age. Our worksheets include lessons about the importance of:
These activity sheets include coloring pages, writing exercises, and connecting the dots. Not only are they educational, but they are also loads of fun. Download free activity worksheets for your child today.
The earlier you begin teaching your children about good oral habits, the better chance they’ll have at developing strong, healthy teeth. Tooth decay has become the number one childhood illness in the United States, and the Center for Disease Control reports that 42% of children ages two to 11 have had cavities in their baby teeth, while 21% of kids ages six to 11 have cavities in their permanent teeth.
If cavities are not addressed quickly, they can lead to infection which can spread to other parts of the body and cause a lot of problems.
Prevention is the key to avoiding dental problems. This is why we recommend brushing your baby’s teeth as soon as the first tooth comes in. As your child grows, you’ll want to make sure they understand the importance of cleaning their teeth and maintaining healthy oral habits.
Whether you use one of Kool Smiles’ tooth brushing worksheets, or you create your own fun lessons, the important thing is that you educate your children on proper dental care.
