You’ve probably heard whining more than once after announcing that it’s time for your kids to brush their teeth. You’ve also probably wondered if there was a way to make brushing time more enjoyable.

There is. Let’s see what Dr. Manshadi, Dr. Roden-Johnson, and Dr. Afridi recommends you do to help make brushing more fun for your kids.

Let them pick
If you make brushing teeth a special moment, kids will enjoy it more often. To make it special, you can let your kids pick their own toothbrush, so it’s something they look forward to using each night. That’s also a good idea for toothpaste, as well. If your kids have favorite flavors or cartoon characters, there’s a high chance you can find that toothpaste for sale at your local grocery store.

Offer rewards
If your kids are proving particularly troublesome at brushing time, then you may want to offer them rewards for brushing their teeth. While this isn’t ideal, it’ll help you get your kids into an established oral health routine – which will save you a lot of money in the long run when you don’t have to pay to have cavities filled.

At the end of the day, we understand it can be hard to get your kids to brush their teeth. However, it’s important they start as early in their lives as possible. If you have any more questions about getting kids to brush their teeth, call us today at (361) 433-4704 for more information.
