Have you ever thought about creating your own dental music that will encourage your children to engage in good oral care habits? With piggyback songs, it's an easy task. Piggyback songs take the tunes of traditional songs and combine them with words specifically adapted to make the song connect to a teachable concept. Parents and caregivers can use these songs as a fun way to teach brushing, flossing and good dental hygiene. Young children love this song method and learn well by repetition.
Good habits start young, so it's important for children to realize they are the primary caretakers of their teeth. Using songs as a reminder that it's time to brush and floss teeth is something you and your child can do together each day. Since dental cavities are one of the most prevalent diseases among children, make sure your routines are set.
