Toddlers and Tooth Brushing – How to Inspire Kids to Brush

Tooth Brushing

As a parent, it’s your job to keep your kids’ mouths healthy. Finding an affordable dentist in Longwood is part of the solution, but routine dental care alone won’t guarantee a healthy smile. Proper oral hygiene to prevent the early onset of tooth decay is essential. If your kids kick and scream every time they see a toothbrush, you’ll have a serious challenge on your hands. Fortunately, there are some tooth brushing tips and tricks that can make it easier to win the battle of the brush.

8 Ways to Make Brushing Easier

  1. Get your children accustomed to dental care even before their teeth arrive by wiping their gums gently with a wet washcloth.
  2. Brush your own teeth in front of your child, and make it look like fun. Your child may copy your behaviors naturally.
  3. Offer your child a choice of fun products like character toothbrushes, fruit-flavored toothpaste and flavored dental floss.
  4. Add a playful element to the dental care routine. Play music, sing or have pretend conversations with your child’s teeth.
  5. Pretend to brush the teeth of your child’s favorite stuffed toy or doll.
  6. Associate the act with a pleasurable activity. For example, brush right before a bedtime story.
  7. Keep track of brushing activities, and reward consistent behavior.
  8. Brush at the same time every day.
