- Try to develope a consistent schedule for your kids to brush their teeth each day. Kids thrive on consistency and repetition. Try to have them brush their teeth when you are not in a hurry. Being in a hurry tends to add more stress to this already stressful situation.
- Put up a reward chart in the bathroom for the children to see. After they brush their teeth each time during the day add a sticker to show them their progress. After the week's chart is full, provide a treat such as a healthy snack or other reward to encourage them.
- Educate your children on the importance of keeping healthy teeth and gums. Explain to them the consequences of not brushing on a regular basis without using scare tactics.
- After your child has attempted to brush his teeth himself (if he is young) make sure you go over his teeth as well to reach the back molars. Brushing your teeth while your child brushes usually helps the child learn by example and shows them that EVERYONE has to brush, not just them.
- Make brushing teeth fun. Look for ways to engage your children in brushing. Make it seem as if if brushing is a fun thing to do rather than a chore. Get your child a fun and colorful toothbrush to start.
- Allow your children to brush your teeth. Have fun with that, then allow them to brush their own teeth. Finish the session by brushing your child's teeth.
- Have your child brush their favorite doll's teeth before you brush theirs. Remember to routinely give them the opportunity to brush their own teeth and then follow up by brushing their teeth correctly.
- Use only a pea-size amount of toothpaste on your child's toothbrush. Larger amounts tend to be difficult for kids to handle by creating too much foam an overwhelming your child's mouth with toothpaste!
- Be careful of the toothpaste you use. Many toothpastes contain strong flavorings that adults may not notice, but that can sting young mouths. Use a toothpaste that's specially made for kids.
- Have the primary caretakers go up to the bathroom eager to brush. Laugh and make it sound really fun. Your child just may realize that they are missing out on something fun and will want to join in.
- An oral hygiene chart can make brushing fun and rewarding. Check out some of our free printable charts!
- Don't forget to praise, praise, praise your kids for their awesome brushing.
