Teaching preschool children about dental hygiene is important because it helps to establish good oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime. Proper dental hygiene can help to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems. By teaching children about the importance of brushing teeth, using mouthwash, and visiting the dentist regularly, you can help to ensure that they have healthy teeth and gums now and in the future.

In order to keep our mouths clean, brushing our teeth is crucial. When we brush our teeth, we remove all the debris and germs we don’t want, ensuring that our teeth remain sparkling and clear. Professionals advise children (and adults) to brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, using toothpaste and a toothbrush, moving up and down in circular motions, and not forgetting the back teeth! It can be difficult to get young children excited about brushing their teeth, but we have some more fun dental hygiene activity and some suggestions to encourage them and help them get rid of the germs.

Following the activity, we discussed dental hygiene practices and introduced fresh ideas like gums and tooth roots. With this activity, we supported the development of many skills, including language development, concept development, and hand-eye coordination. One of the daily life skills we learned was how to maintain oneself. These basic supplies that you already have at home can also be used to create this activity. Enjoy the teeth-brushing activity?
