Motivating your child to brush their teeth regularly can be difficult, to say the least. But it has to be done, right? Here are some tips to help you help your child make tooth brushing time exciting so that they will actually look forward to oral hygiene:
– Select a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss featuring your child’s favorite cartoon characters. You can even go to the store with your child so he or she can pick it out.
– Make tooth brushing time a game or a party. Ask them how many bubbles they can make with the toothpaste. The more they brush, the more bubbles will form.
– Convince your child that their floss is a superhero. After all, it dives into the spaces between the teeth and eliminates the plaque villains.
– Make cleaning your smile a family party. While you all brush, turn on music and dance along. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing can be enjoyable!
