Oral care is important whether it is for a child or an adult. True, your child’s teeth are still temporary until they are six years old. At that age, they start to grow permanent teeth until they are around 12 or 13 years old. Still, you need to make sure that they develop good habits of taking care of their teeth and their mouth.
Toothbrush Sets For Kids
There are a lot of ways to encourage good oral care for your child. As soon as they are born and even if they do not have permanent teeth yet, you can start by just wiping their gums with a thin cloth. This way, your child will get used to the feeling of getting their mouth cleaned regularly.
When they start growing their teeth, get your child into the habit of brushing two to three times daily. When they start to grab the toothbrush from you or show signs of wanting to do it themselves, you can train them. Let them do it on their own. Then, repeat brushing with you holding the brush the second time around.
Another way to encourage your child to brush his or her teeth is by making it fun. You can get him, or her fun toothbrush sets to get them in the mood for brushing.
Baby Gum Care And Brushing
Gum care is also very important. You can start by massaging or cleaning your baby’s gums. Do it with a soft cloth wrapped around your fingers. You can also do it using “Nuby Toothe and Gum Care Set.” Use the stage one brush with soft silicone brushes to wipe your baby’s gums clean. Later on, as your child learns to hold and grip, you can have him, or her hold on to the toothbrush. He or she can chew on it while getting his or her gums clean. Talk about multitasking!
Animals And Brushing
One of the first things you may have taught your child to identify is animals. You start with the animals that you see all the time like dogs, cats, and birds. Then, you start identifying the animal that you see at the zoo. One way to teach your child about different animals is by getting an animal-themed toothbrush set.
A good animal toothbrush set is “Brusheez Kids Electronic Toothbrush Set” available at Kohls. It comes in four different colors, green, pink, blue and yellow. It comes in different animal themes such as “Jovie the Giraffe,” “Buddy the Bear,” “Snappy the Croc” or “Prancy the Pony.” The toothbrush set also comes with a timer. This will help your child know how long they should be brushing and eventually, how thorough they should be brushing. Now, that is shooting two birds with one stone!
Colors And Brushing
Aside from different animals, teaching your child the different colors is also one of the things that you’ve most likely done. “Gum Crayola Toothbrushes” is just the toothbrush you can use to integrate teaching colors and brushing. You can get this toothbrush in several ways. One set comes in a combination of blue and orange toothbrushes. You can also get them individually in pink, purple, light blue and dark blue.
Brushing And Flossing
Another oral care step that you need to teach your child is flossing. This is something that your child should do after each brushing or once or twice a day. Start by buying the “Firefly Kids Dental Care Kit.” It comes complete with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss. It also comes in bright colors that will be very attractive to your child. You can get these toothbrushes in red/green, blue/yellow or pink/blue color combinations.
One good thing about this toothbrush set is you can use it as a party giveaway. It is a complete set, so you can give it away as it is. It can be that you are a dentist looking for a giveaway to your patients or you have an oral care themed party.
