Convince Your Child to Drink More Water with These Tips

Water is a natural cleanser. It helps cut back on dental plaque, food debris, and even tooth stain around braces. Drinking enough water is essential for our kids’ overall health and dental wellness, but it can be tough to convince them to drink it. At the office of William R. Kincer, your family’s orthodontist in Marietta, we know what a challenge it can be to convince children to water, but there are a few things you can do to help.

Choose a Fun Water Bottle

One way to make drinking water more appealing to your child is to let them choose their own water bottle. Whether they choose their favorite color or characters, they are more likely to drink from a water bottle they love and pick out themselves.

Adding Fruit Makes It Fun

Slice up some strawberries or cucumbers, and add them to their water bottle or let them choose their own fruit mix. More than being fun, it’s a great way to add flavor and sneak in some extra vitamins and minerals.

Make Water More Important Than Other Drinks

When we make things exciting, our kids get excited. If you make it a priority to always have water available and emphasize that it’s the most important drink they can have, they’ll be more likely to make it a habit.

Explain Sugary Drinks and Tooth Decay

Kids are smart, and they always like to know why. So it’s important to explain why sugary drinks, such as soda and juice, can be harmful to their teeth. Let them know that these drinks can lead to tooth decay and cavities and that drinking water is the best choice for their pretty smiles.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • After having my braces off for 12 years. I go in today to see my little sister get her braces off, and Dr. Kincer readjusted my Old retainers to fit again!! He is a great orthodontist!

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
