But instead he ran up to the table, grabbed him cookies and raced to the yard to friends. As his or chastised, he continued to do so”..
We all know that children are not big fans of brushing. Standard exhortations, as a rule, do not apply to them. For the child this activity seems incomprehensible routine, because he does not see instant results. But the neglect of the tooth brush and paste leads to rapid effects. The child gets bad breath.
To the kid still learned a useful habit to brush your teeth regularly morning and evening, add game time to it. And this will help us continue the tale. Imagine that Peter found himself one day in the wonderful land of sweets, and reigned in her crafty, cunning Caries.
“Hello, Peter, said he Caries. – I’m so glad you were my guest! Here you will love! You, dear guest, and I royally let you now there are so many cookies, marshmallows and candies as you wish. I have a little request to you. In my country there is one simple rule: never brush your teeth. Do it?”. Still can not cope! To do this, Petya had plenty of abilities, and he bravely stuffed their pockets full of marmalade, marshmallow, and on top of still lemonade poured, that was fun.
Of course, such fabulous miracles will appeal to your child and engage him, but the main task – to convey to him, as tricky indeed Caries and that threatens the gullible boy, if he stays in this country.
“However, after some time the teeth Petya went dark just as the cloak of Caries. Surrounded their rude and evil Royal soldiers and let’s attack, so much so it hurts! Some teeth even formed holes, and in them settled the disgusting bacteria. Peter wanted to run to the yard to play with friends, but heard from them in reply: “Yes, you have bad breath, we will not be friends with you!”.

Was Peter to mom, told her about his failure, and her nothing left to do but to take his hand and lead straight to the doctor – dentist. The good doctor took care of the teeth of Petit, but strictly told every day in the morning and evening to chase the pesky bacteria with a toothbrush”. Steel and Petit’s teeth clean and sparkling, and his mouth if it smelled, fragrant paste.

THE STORY ABOUT THE INHABITANTS OF A SMALL HOUSE
Another factor, which the child in the morning breath, this is fundamentally wrong the current skill brushing teeth.
Assume that the previous story that prompted the baby at least to pick up a toothbrush. Now you need to teach it correctly to use it.
In my experience, even many adults do not know how to properly brush your teeth. Because of this, in the oral cavity accumulate deposits of food starts rotting, the breeding of bacteria. To avoid this, man must from childhood to learn how to use a toothbrush properly.
“In a little house lived the teeth. And there were… let me count the ways! One, two, three… they Decided to put their house in order. And for that invited guests in the brush. The same was invited along for company a tube of toothpaste and a glass of water. Came the brush and start all the garbage sweep. Each tooth she courted on all sides, thoroughly and slowly. Then came the water and washed his teeth. They began to Shine white. This is the tale end and who listened to her and realized that the teeth in the house will always be clean and beautiful as pearls!”.
Example the adult may also have a positive impact on the development of good habits in the child. Therefore, we recommend to first brush your teeth together. It is possible to count the movement of the brush in ten movements – from the inside, top and bottom.
The cleaning process may become more exciting if you use also a variety of preslava: “…it’s time to sweep the bacteria out of the house!”. So the child will remember, what should be the movement of the brush.
In case you are not sure that the methods available to explain to the child how to properly brush your teeth, consult a doctor – hygienist. In his Arsenal there are good materials and simple techniques.
ABOUT HOW THE LANGUAGE OF THE TEETH WERE JEALOUS
“Looking tongue, as a courting brush teeth and dreaming: here would it also brush noticed! Defeated after and bacteria settled on a home, and even litter constantly. That was sad tongue…”
Plaque on the surface of the tongue of the baby can be one of the sources of mouth odor. It is extremely important to timely explain to the child that clean language is not less important than teeth, and as often. It does not require much effort and time. Enough for half a minute. And it can be done with a fun scraper, which is sold in any drugstore.
