Sometimes kids don’t like cleaning and caring for their smile. This can make it tough for parents to keep their children’s teeth healthy and strong. If your child is one who dislikes oral hygiene, our dentist, Dr. Jenny Hawkins, has a tip for you. Use cool oral hygiene tools that make smile cleaning a little more fun and exciting! Some tools you can have your child use are:

-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!

-Kids’ electric toothbrushes: Electric toothbrushes make oral hygiene super fun! And electric toothbrushes made for kids make brushing even more fun. In fact, some brushes play songs like We’re All in This Together from High School Musical and more while they brush!

-Kids’ toothpaste: Some brands, like Colgate®, manufacture toothpaste that can be very exciting for children to use. Some pastes have bright and brilliant colors while other pastes have fun shapes and glitter inside them. Your child might love using these types of colorful and surprising kinds of toothpaste.
