Title: Making Tooth Brushing More Fun for Kids


1
  • MAKING TOOTH BRUSHING MORE FUN FOR KIDS

2
(No Transcript)
3
  • Most dentists recommend changing your kids
    toothbrush every three months and after an
    illness, so its probably about time for a new
    one.

4
  • Yet, getting kids on board for tooth brushing is
    often more like pulling teeth.

5
  • While it may be tempting to threaten your kid
    with dentures, these ideas below will make tooth
    brushing so much fun

6
  • that you may just find them randomly brushing
    their teeth for pure enjoyment.

7
Surprise Them with a Cool Toothbrush
8
  • Most dentists recommend changing your kids
    toothbrush every three months and after an
    illness, so its probably about time for a new
    one.

9
  • This time around, explore the many different
    types of toothbrushes that are available.

10
  • From cartoon character themes for younger kids to
    ones that play songs that are perfect for teens

11
  • your kid will be more excited to comply with
    their oral hygiene routine when they have a
    toothbrush that reflects their personality.

12
Turn it Into a Game
13
  • When was the last time you participated in a
    tooth brushing race?

14
  • Since you know your kids needs to brush for at
    least two minutes, try seeing who can brush their
    teeth the longest.

15
  • Alternatively, place your kids side by side and
    see who can keep brushing until the timer runs
    out.

16
  • Making this part of the day a fun way to bond
    with you and their siblings will have kids
    clamoring to join in on the game.

17
Try a Dental Science Experiment
18
  • Kids are naturally visual learners, and they
    often dont care about brushing their teeth
    because they cannot visualize the negative
    effects that may occur far into the future.

19
  • Help them make the connection between the food
    they eat and cavities by performing a classic
    science experiment.

20
  • Seeing an egg shell soften in acidic vinegar or
    watching as the egg darkens in response to soda
    lets kids see firsthand what can happen when they
    treat tooth brushing like it is an option.

21
Highlight the Plaque
22
  • Discovering plaque on your teeth might make you
    turn many shades of red, but your kids will think
    its cool to watch as their teeth turn an
    interesting hue.

23
  • Plaque disclosing tablets and rinses are a simple
    way to show your kids the areas of their mouth
    that need some extra brushing.

24
  • To keep it interesting, dont use them all the
    time. Instead, keep them as an ace in your pocket
    to pull out on those nights when your kids are
    groaning about brushing their teeth.

25
Turn Up the Tunes
26
  • Most songs last about two to three minutes, which
    is the optimal time your kids should be brushing
    their teeth.

27
  • Bring a music player into the bathroom and
    encourage your kids to dance to a favorite song
    as they brush their teeth.

28
  • Be sure to change up the songs every time and
    your kid will look forward to their new favorite
    ritual.

29
  • When tooth-brushing time has become a drag, it is
    important to whip out a few tricks for making it
    fun.

30
  • Kids are naturally attracted to activities in
    their daily routine that are entertaining so be
    willing to turn their oral hygiene into a fun
    part of their day.

31
  • As they begin to brush their teeth without being
    reminded, remember to praise their efforts for
    maintaining their beautiful smile.
