How To Get Your Kids Excited About Oral Health!

June 3, 2014

shutterstock_166055237Many parents may find it difficult to make oral care exciting and fun for their children. Getting your child to brush their teeth may be a feat you have to overcome every day. Though some parents have come up with inventive ways to make sure brushing your teeth is fun, some parents still may be questioning how they can get their kids to be excited about the experience. Dr. Shiloh Lindsey, being a believer in setting good oral care habits early on, has some suggestions for parents who want to make brushing teeth fun!

One of the more exciting things parents can do to make oral care fun for their children is to join them in the fun! Brushing your teeth with your children creates a wonderful bonding moment between you two.  Showing your child how you brush your teeth, and letting them mimic you is a wonderful way to show them how proper oral care is done. Having fun toothbrushes are also a wonderful way to make oral care exciting for your kids! If your child has a favorite cartoon movie or superhero, having their toothbrushes coincide with that is a wonderful way to get them excited and eager to brush their teeth.

Having a yummy tasting toothpaste is another great way to get kids excited about oral care! There are so many types of toothpastes made just for children, helping them enjoy the experience much, much more. Having a singalong is another good way to get children excited about brushing their teeth. Children tend to learn and respond more to music than words, so making the experience a musical one is a sure way to get the on the right track of wanting to take care of their smile. No matter which option you choose, as long as you make the experience of good oral care a fun one for both you and your child, good things are sure to come!
