How to Get a Toddler to Brush their Teeth: Share the “Brush Your Teeth Sing-Along Song for Kids”
Transform your child’s “chore” of brushing his or her teeth into a fun-filled activity by sharing the “Brush Your Teeth Sing-Along Song for Kids” with your son or daughter.
The Super Dentists are committed to helping your child learn good brushing and flossing habits, and the “Brush Your Teeth Sing-Along Song for Kids” music video features a catchy tune that you can use to teach your child that you should brush for two minutes each time and it just so happens the song is two minutes long.
Our “Brush Your Teeth Sing-Along Song for Kids” highlights the importance of using circular motions to brush the teeth, brushing the tongue correctly, properly flossing the teeth and much more. As a result, you can teach your child to sing, dance and, of course, brush and floss with the sing-along to ensure a picture-perfect smile in no time at all.
With extra help fromThe Super Dentists team, you’ll be able to help your child move one step closer to achieving a Super smile and preventing cavities, gingivitis, and other long-term oral health issues.
Music is an important element in teaching a toddler to brush their teeth. That’s why we created The Super Toothbrush®, yet another tool to help you teach kids to brush their teeth. The Super Toothbrush®, includes a 2-minute song (the recommended time for how long children should brush their teeth), along with magic augmented reality sticker. When paired with the FREE Vivarra Dental app, the Tooth Keri will appear in 3D to teach your kids how to brush and floss. The battery lasts just about three months. When it runs out, you know it’s time to switch out toothbrushes.
How to Get Kids to Brush Their Teeth: Set Up a Reminder Chart
Does your child know when to brush and floss? Ideally, your child should brush twice daily, and floss at least once. A reminder chart can make it easier for you to reinforce the importance of consistent brushing and flossing.
Setting up a reminder chart in your bathroom serves as a great way to remind your child to brush in the morning and before bedtime every day and to floss once a day.
Also, don’t forget to reward children for brushing or flossing consistently. By doing so, you’ll be able to turn the chore of brushing and flossing into a rewarding activity, one your child may actually start to enjoy.
Brush and Floss Your Teeth with Your Child
Show your child there is no age limit when it comes to regular brushing and flossing by performing these activities side by side with them.
