As a parent, you know that getting your little one to take care of their teeth and gums properly can be an uphill battle. However, you also understand the importance of brushing and flossing, so what’s the solution? Since February is Children’s Dental Health Month, there is no time like the present to prioritize their oral hygiene routine. Here are four products that are effective, fun, and kid-approved from a children’s dentist!

#1. Brushies

The task of getting your child excited about the concept of caring for their teeth and gums can initially seem impossible. After all, how exciting can a toothbrush be? Thanks to Brushies, the answer is very exciting! This dentist-imagined product combines a traditional toothbrush with finger puppets, which makes it not only incredibly effective but extremely fun as well.

#2. GumChucks Floss Picks

It’s no secret that flossing is just as important as brushing. Unfortunately, this essential component of any oral hygiene routine often falls to the wayside, especially since it isn’t exactly a fun task. Fortunately, however, products like GumChucks exist! The adorable character, trading cards, and challenge of mastering the skill of flossing make practicing dental care so fun that your little one won’t look at caring for their teeth and gums like a chore.

#3. BrushyBall

BrushyBall is a yellow, animated brushing coach designed to walk your child through proper oral care. To make the process fun, its cute voice uses a follow-the-leader game to introduce some excitement into the learning process. That way, they develop good brushing habits from an early age, helping prevent decay, cavities, and other dental issues in the short and long-term.

#4. Power Brushes

Power brushes are extremely effective at removing food particles, plaque, and other debris. To make this upgrade a bit more exciting, opt for a product that connects to your phone. Many brands have an app that allows you to see which surfaces your little one missed as they brushed their teeth. Not only does this add a visual component to their dental care, but it allows you to see where they may need a little extra help.

Unfortunately, there is a popular misconception that oral hygiene routines are boring. However, they certainly don’t have to be! To get your little one genuinely excited about the concept of caring for their growing smile, consider incorporating the above products into their regimen!
