Getting your kids to brush their teeth is not always an easy task—so we at 123Dentist.com wanted to help your kids get motivated to brush their teeth. Brushing regularly can get rid of all the leftover food particles on your teeth and serves as an important part of your overall health routine.
Here are a couple of fun ways your kids can decorate their toothbrushes so they can have fun while brushing their teeth.
- Your child can use stickers and markers to decorate the toothbrush to reflect their interests and personality.
- Your child can use sparkles, glue, or felt to decorate the base of the toothbrush. Make sure the materials do not get anywhere close to the mouth so your child does not accidentally ingest the material.
- Your child can decorate a toothbrush holder to store their toothbrush when they are not using it.
- Your child can switch to an electric toothbrush. Electric toothbrushes are fun to use and help clean your teeth much more efficiently. Some manufacturers have come out with electric toothbrushes designed specifically for kids, which may be more convenient for your child to use.
Bringing your kids shopping with you for a new toothbrush is a great way to get them excited about their oral health. Asking them to pick out their own toothbrush allows them to choose a color and style that they prefer, which may make them more motivated to brush their teeth twice a day. Hopefully with these tools, the activity of brushing your teeth will be more exciting for your child and they will get excited to brush on a regular basis.
