Kids’ Tooth Decay SOS # 5 for Parents and Educators
Campbelltown, South Australia (EXPERTCLICK) May 10, 2012 – Dr. Garth Pettit, Oral Health Care Educator, Author of Kindle eBook, How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 3 of 12. Kids’ Tooth Decay SOS # 5 for Parents and Educators.
Kids’ Tooth Decay SOS # 5: “My son at 21 months is showing early signs of decay. For us I think it’s hereditary. We also still nurse throughout the day and at night.” Andra.
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 take it literally and that is all they do.
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. Author Dr. Garth Pettit advises parents and educators, in Kindle eBook, How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 3 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.

“Visit #3 to GarGar the Dentist teaches children basic facts about food and drink choices and how they affect oral health.
The lesson covers different foods, package labelling puzzles, and explanations of basic chemicals and minerals commonly found in toothpaste and foods and how they affect oral health.
Kids are invited to draw these compounds, are given some simple lessons and phrases that avoid any confusion over terminology, and are given fun reinforcing exercises to make the ‘X, Y and Z’ lesson even more appealing.
A simple quiz provides ideas for further drawing activities and invites parents and kids to partake. There’s also a colorful, printable Certificate of Achievement to reinforce successful tests, discussions of ‘plaque monkey’ challenges, and tips on how to make sensible, wise choices on what to put in one’s mouth.
Answers for Visits are given in the next Visit, assuring a smooth transition between books and lessons.
As with the others in the series, translations are readily available in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese as well as the original English, making these a fine choice for a variety of cultures.”
