My 9 year gives us trouble brushing his teeth it is a big fight every night he refuses alot and his breath is kicking, we've tried to tell him if he doese brush them his teeth are going to look like his Uncle Tic doesn't work we even told him they would all fall out still nothing, I am tried of hearing his parents yell at him and seeing him get grounded. What can we do to fix this problem? Thanks Anna M. Arthur

  • You can take him to a pedodontist who are trained to handle difficult children. The Pedodontist can motive him by showing some motivation videos and may be the atomosphere in Pedo dental clinic can encourage him to maintain good oral hygiene. It is always not scolding or punishing works. Encouraging and giving him small token gifts or the things he likes the most can help. These are called positive re-enforcers.
