lil Tip: Brushing Your Child's Teeth

lil Tip: Brushing Your Child's Teeth

Trying to get your tot's teeth brushed, but they aren't into it? Turn the task into a game. When my daughter purses her lips and shuts off access to her pearly whites, I ask questions about her favorite things. How happy would you be if...and then fill in the blank with things like "our house was made of marshmallows," "the whole world was pink" and "you had a pet unicorn"? Her wide grin allows me the opportunity to slip the toothbrush in.

I tell my daughter to open her mouth like and alligator, and to smile like a gorilla so I can get everything. She just had her first dental appt and no cavities!

I just asked them to open their mouths for brushing, no tricks were ever needed.

I still use the "I still see some ______ (insert food that has been eaten that day) on that tooth" or "There is some milk hiding in your back teeth"
