Kids’ Tooth Decay SOS # 13 For Parents and Educators
Campbelltown, South Australia (EXPERTCLICK) May 22, 2012 – Dr. Garth Pettit, Oral Health Care Educator, Author of Kindle eBook, How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 11 of 12. Kids’ Tooth Decay SOS # 13.
Kids’ Tooth Decay SOS # 13: “We first notice the yellowish/brownish lines on our then 15 month old son’s front four teeth in Jan….. Needless to say, I am consumed with worry, but am trying to relax and rest in knowing we are doing our very best. Our main concern is that he is happy and not in any pain.” Susan.
Prevention of the common oral diseases tooth decay, gum diseases, bad breath and stained teeth is simple if parents and educators know what oral hygiene instruction and what oral health care education to give to teach their children. The dental profession’s advice to prevent oral diseases, since the invention in the year 1498 of the first bristle toothbrush, has been “Brush Your Teeth”. Children’s oral health care education, if at all, has been based on that advice; “Brush Your Teeth”. It has never changed! It is now timely for a change. “Brush Your Teeth” is a misleading oral hygiene instruction. Many people, taking it literally and simply brushing only teeth, are candidates for dental treatment throughout their lifetimes.
“That this instruction “Brush Your Teeth” has not succeeded in the prevention of oral diseases in children (and in adults!) is evidenced by the sheer, and ever- increasing, demand for treatment of all common oral diseases: both by children and by adults” says Author. Dr. Garth Pettit advises parents and educators, in Kindle eBook, How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 11 of 12, to instruct children to “Treat Your Whole Mouth” or better still for children, “Paint Your Mouth” and to provide children with an oral health education based on that instruction. The Author recommends reading this recent review of this eBook.

“How To Paint Your Mouth provides detailed oral hygiene instructions on exactly how to ‘paint your mouth’, beginning with the ‘why’ of the operation and moving to when and where to do so.
This isn’t a repeat of the first book: its instructions offer more depth and detail and provides step-by-step direction, and it re-identifies the nature of the tooth brush and helps kids identify whether a brush is too big, too small, or just right.
Tooth paste is changed to ‘mouth paint’ and the colorful plastic models of the mouth are used to teach the positions and names of adult teeth, the concept of ‘quadrants’, and much more.
There’s a lot of information in this lesson, which offers step-by-step instruction on how to brush and paint the different kinds of teeth surfaces in a more effective manner.
Thirteen specific steps are reinforced by play time activities accompanied by the admonition to never rinse the mouth with water after surface painting.
By painting the whole mouth, kids create a layer of helpful plaque filled with helpful X. Y. Z’s. Special cleaning tips are reinforced by fun concluding chapters in this winning presentation, which is filled with information kids and parents will want to review numerous times.
Again: translations in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese allow all kids access to key dental health information.”
