How to Make Brushing Teeth Fun for Kids

Posted By: wpadmin | August 11, 2016

Mother and daughter brushing teeth in Peachtree City GAGetting kids to take care of their teeth can sometimes be difficult. Whether they are nervous about visiting the dentist or simply throw a fit against having their teeth brushed, there are any number of obstacles to overcome. Here are a few ideas for making the process easier that are sure to bring a smile to your children’s faces.

Allow Your Child to Choose

You may get a free toothbrush from your Peachtree City family dentist, but sometimes going to the store and picking out something special can make all the difference to kids. Allow them to choose their favorite TV character or a special color—whatever piques their interest in the store. Then give them a choice of toothpaste. Often there are several kid-friendly flavors to choose from and there are a wide variety of options, including fluoride free, if your children are too young to reliably spit out the toothpaste after brushing.

Sing a Song

It is recommended that you brush your teeth for 2 minutes. You can set an hourglass timer for your children to watch the sand slip through to count down the time, or sing a couple of short songs to make it more fun! A high tech option would be to download the app “Brush DJ” which plays 2 minutes of music, or “Star Teeth,” where a character of your child’s choice will provide encouragement to brush well!

Begin Early

Babies with just 1 tooth can chew on a basic kids’ toothbrush with adult supervision. Get kids used to brushing their teeth twice a day and bring them to the dentist each time anyone in the family has an appointment. Being a part of a family dentistry practice in Peachtree City makes it easy to get your kids used to the dentist because you can bring them with you for your own dental cleanings. If you have a reluctant child, don’t give up! Keep working at it and soon your children will all enjoy brushing their teeth.

  1. What you posted was actually very logical. But, what about this?
    what if you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good, however suppose you added a title to
    maybe get people’s attention? I mean How to Make Brushing Teeth Fun for
    Kids – Parkside Dental Practice is kinda boring.
    You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article headlines to grab people to click.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to grab
    readers excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more interesting.
