- Keep treats such as sweets, cookies, and cakes for after meals. The mouth has produced more saliva at the time, and the teeth of your child are therefore better protected.
- Dairy acts as a buffer for the acids that are provided by bacteria in the mouth and reduces the risk of tooth decay. So consider giving your children milk or cheese when they get something tasty during the holidays.
- Hard candy can get stuck between children’s teeth, causing caries to develop. Flossing can help to remove the pieces of candy. Try floss with the favorite character of your child to make flossing fun.
- To make sure that your child does not indulge too much during the holiday, you can keep leftover candy in a sealed container and give your child something tasty at fixed times.
- Encourage your children to drink more water to prevent tooth decay. If you choose water from a bottle, look at the label how much fluoride it contains. Water with fluoride can cause children to get fewer holes in their milk teeth.
brushing teeth in 5 steps
Step 1: getting used to touching the mouth and lips. Teach the dog that you can lift his lips and view his teeth. First practice at the height of the canines and gradually go backward.
Step 2: Get used to the taste of the toothpaste. Put a little dog toothpaste on your fingers and let the dog lick it. Also, rub some toothpaste on his teeth and gums.
Step 3: the introduction of the toothbrush. Increase stability by placing your index finger on the head of the toothbrush. Start at the height of the canines and smoothly make horizontal movements.
Step 4: brushing the canines. In the same way that the canines were polished, you now carefully move backward.
Step 5: brushing the cutting teeth.
It is essential to wait at least five days between each step and to practice each level for five days. Reward regularly with a candy in between.
There are also liquids to put into the drinking water that inhibit bacterial growth in the mouth, prevent plaque and tartar and provide fresh breath.
You can mix the liquid daily in the drinking water or use it on an individual wipe and rub the teeth. The outside of the teeth is thus hardened, and the use of the liquid also flushes the inside.
Dental care chewing products
Nowadays, many types of chewing bones, sticks, biscuits and the like are available. There are also two types such as the pastes: products that only mechanically clean the teeth and products that also contain enzymes that also actively work against the plaque. The latter can be obtained from us at the practice.
Also, there are also toys on which the dog can chew so that the teeth are also cleaned immediately. However, it must be ensured that the dog only chews on these ropes and does not eat them. This can cause severe blockages in the gastrointestinal tract. This kind of toys should best be supervised only.
