Abstract

Aim

This study is to evaluate the parental awareness of children brushing technique.

Objective

To access the parental awareness of children brushing techniques.

Background

The parents should be aware of the efficient techniques and care for the oral health of his or her children. Teaching children proper oral care at a young age is an investment in his or her health that will pay lifelong profit. Passing on good oral habits to the child is one of the most important health lessons parents can teach them. This means helping him or her brush twice a day, showing the proper way to floss, limiting between-meal snacks and seeing your dentist regularly.

Reason

Proper tooth brushing technique may help to protect the accumulation of plaque and reduce the prevalence of dental caries and gingivitis in children. The mothers play an important role in uptake of encouraging dental health practices.
