How Can I Get My Child To Brush More?
Nov 7 2017
A difficult task many parents face is how to get their child to brush more. It is a struggle to get a kid interested in dental hygiene, but here are some tips to help make teeth brushing a little easier.
Use an electric toothbrush
An electric toothbrush may be more fun for children to use, and, not only that, electric toothbrushes can clean a little better than your average manual toothbrush.
Play a song
If your child has a favorite song, play that when they are brushing their teeth. They will be more excited to brush their teeth and will brush for a longer period of time so they can listen to the song.
Have a schedule
Including teeth brushing into your child’s daily routine will help them get used to brushing and it will slowly grow into a habit.
Let them choose a toothpaste
When your child gets to pick their own toothpaste they will be more excited to use it.
