Are you struggling to motivate your child to clean and care for their teeth each day? If so, our dentist, Dr. Deanna Dudenbostel, encourages you to spice up the oral hygiene routine! This can make cleaning the teeth and gums a little more fun and exciting, which could give your child the motivation they need. One way you can spice up the oral hygiene routine is by letting them use cool oral hygiene tools. Some cool oral hygiene tools available include:

-Plip Clips: Plip Clips are cute little clips that hold your child’s toothbrush. They are often shaped as animals, like ducks, dogs and cats, and their little mouths hold the toothbrush for your child. All you need to do is suction the clip to the bathroom mirror and have your child feed their toothbrush into the mouth!

-Electric toothbrushes for kids: Electric toothbrushes make brushing fun and exciting, and electric toothbrushes for kids can make brushing even better! Some brushes play music while in use and some have fun two-minute timers. Most brushes have fun cartoon or superhero characters on them to make your child feel like they’re brushing with their friends.

-Fun toothpaste: Certain brands, like Colgate®, have toothpaste that are just for kids. Some have bright colors while others have fun shapes and sparkles in the paste! This toothpaste can clean your child’s smile and make brushing fun and exciting.
