Fun ways to get your kids to clean their teeth!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes it can be a bit of a battle with very young kids when it comes to teeth brushing. You’ve both had a long tiring day, bath time has been and gone, and now the bedtime ritual begin starting with teeth brushing. As babies and toddlers need a little help with this you’ll be pleased to know that it gets a fair bit easier and as children get a bit older they love the independence of brushing their own. This can be really easily achieved with a few pointers. This brush by Colgate has a fun design that’s guaranteed to raise a grin, a battery operated tooth brush is a great way of ensuring more areas of the mouth can be reached and cleaned thoroughly and kids will find it fun to use too. Here’s a few tips that I think help promote good oral hygiene in kids and make this time fun for all, feel free to message me yours.
- Smile while you’re brushing! Make it an activity that children can enjoy rather than a chore. Lots of praise and positive vibes!
- Use an egg timer or timing device to make sure children are brushing for the right time (it sure beats nagging and they’ll love to do it all by themselves.
- There’s always lots of choice of toothpaste so if your child is not keen on the taste of traditional flavours you can always find other options out there. Also a fun character toothbrush will make teeth brushing more appealing to young children.
- Make sure you keep up on dental appointments and make oral hygiene part of all of the family’s routine.
