Ways You Can Make Brushing More Fun for Kids

Ways You Can Make Brushing More Fun for Kids

If you're a parent, you know how frustrating and tiresome it can be to get your young children to take care of their teeth. There's something about brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash twice a day that they make every effort to resist – even when they know it's important for a healthy smile! And on top of that, taking them to see their dentist twice a year can seem like you're shipping them off to boot camp.

So how can you make oral hygiene a bigger priority in your little ones' lives? By making it more fun, of course! If you're not sure where to begin improving your kids' oral hygiene habits, here are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind about keeping their pearly whites healthy and strong.

Cartoon-inspired toothbrushes
Kids go wild for just about anything that has their favorite cartoon characters on it, so keep that in mind when you're shopping for toothbrushes. After all, you likely have an entire collection of similarly patterned lunch boxes, backpacks and other items your children use on a daily basis. Look for children's toothbrushes in fun colors and shapes that feature classic characters like Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny. And to give their toothbrushes an added wow factor, consider picking up electronic models that will make brushing seem more like a game.

Fun-flavored toothpaste
Think toothpaste is only available in classic mint flavors? Think again. These days, there's a seemingly endless number of flavors and styles of toothpaste for people to choose from. You can opt for bubblegum or go spicy with a hint of cinnamon. Giving kids the option to choose their favorite flavors will make them feel like they have more control over their brushing habits.
