How to get your kids to brush their teeth
How to get your kids to WANT to brush their teeth. Did you know your kids should brush their teeth for 2 minutes? Our dentist taught us this when Peyton was only 18 months old. Now just because we KNOW this information that doesn’t make it fun – or does it???
How to get your kids to brush their teeth:
I have always used a timer with Peyton so that he knows how long he should brush however he often forgets to flip it over OR he plays with while he brushes and loses track of the time. So, when we were introduced to the Tooth Tunes Toothbrush by Arm & Hammer, I was “hopeful” that it would help our situations.
When the toothbrush arrived, and I handed to to Peyton he got excited. WHAT? Excited about brushing his teeth? I thought he would like the toothbrush because he really LOVES music. He has is iPod with him at all times and is constantly singing and dancing to his tunes. His favorite class at school is Music Class and he loves to play his drums, recorder and ukulele. In fact one of his favorite shows to watch is the Voice!
When Peyton came home from school and saw the new toothbrush, he immediately asked me if he could open it. Wow, that is a good sign. Next he asked if he could go brush his teeth…..YES, you are reading that correctly – he ASKED me in the middle of the day if he could go brush his teeth. He really enjoyed brushing his teeth to the tunes and he actually brushed for the full 2 minutes and then brushed again. YES – AGAIN!
We have a WINNER! Since the arrival of the toothbrush I have had no issues with Peyton complaining about brushing or the time spent! I love that Peyton was excited about the new Tooth Tunes and I know Dr. Ryder (his dentist will be). At every appointment we always talk about flossing and length of time brushing. I like that he is interested without me insisting and I can’t wait to see how using the new Tooth Tunes on a daily basis benefits his teeth. I am sure he will soon have a brighter whiter smile.

LOVE anything that will help encourage my little one to brush!
I love that he LOVES to brush his teeth! We were introduced to Tooth Tunes awhile ago, and that is the only way I can get to my son to brush his teeth for more than 5 seconds. I love your #RDMA Tooth Tunes photo – I think I’m going to have to make one of my own =)
I love this idea! With three kids of varying ages it would be great to have a fun way for each of them to keep up with the time! Looks like Tooth Tunes are in our to buy list!
I am all for anything that get the little ones to willingly brush their teeth! Yay for Tooth Tunes!
