Once a family works and bonds together in order to create a beautiful and healthy smile the world of health can open up, but make no mistake, it is truly a family affair because obtaining a healthy smile is more than just brushing and flossing and when your family bonds together, it can become easier to achieve the goal. Here are 5 tips to help get your family started.
1. Go to the store together and shop for toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and other dental needs. This helps get the whole family involved and ensures that every person gets the healthy dental thing they love.
2. Grocery shop together and hold each other accountable. If someone is reaching to throw those pita chips or the frozen pizza in the cart. Remind them that you are on a path to dental health that starts from the inside out. Grab vegetables and fruits instead to snack on. The higher the water content the better.
3. Don’t forget to grab water bottles for the family. As it heats up outside, we are more prone to dry mouth and dehydration. This is the perfect opportunity for bacteria to take advantage and begin to destroy your smile.
4. Have fun together during this process. The more you laugh and the more fun it is the more likely you are to stick with it.
