How do you teach your kids the importance of oral hygiene?

Posted by   + Show Post

Healthy habits start with the first tooth and getting an early start on a brushing routine helps establish healthy habits that can last a lifetime. Aquafresh gave 50 CafeMom members one tube of Aquafresh Training toothpaste and a tooth brush and asked them to try it with their young children. The new toothpaste is designed for your baby's developing mouth and is not only fluoride-free but also safe-to-swallow.

We found a great toothpaste that they both LOVE and it has helped 10 fold at getting them excited about brushing!

I brush at the same time she does, and demonstrate. She is learning, but still wants to rush through. This has helped me too, we got her one of those toothbrushes that light up till you have brushed long enough, and I realized it was longer than I was used to brushing, too.

I have to stay on my kids about the importance of brushing their teeth.  They are all older and you would think they wouldn't want to go to school with stinky breath but that just isn't the case.  They do brush because I make them but they hate doing it and I have no idea why.

I try to scare them about mine and hubby's teeth, but that doesn't seem to work good. My daughter is good about brushing her teeth, but the youngest doesn't have any interest and it's frustrating.

I'd love some tips on getting a teen to brush more. I have to stay on her more than I do the 2 younger ones.
