8 Ways to End Your Child’s Tooth Brushing Tantrums

Tooth Brushing

If you have young children, you’re probably accustomed to dealing with daily power struggles. Like many other essential practices, tooth brushing can easily turn into a battle. When it comes to managing your children’s health, obtaining dental care from an affordable dentist is just the tip of the iceberg; proper daily dental care is imperative. Tooth decay can begin as soon as tiny teeth erupt. Before you throw in the towel and give in to the tantrums, try the following tips.

How to Make Tooth Brushing Easier

  1. Accustom your child to routine dental care before their teeth erupt, gently washing their gums with a wet cloth.
  2. Brush at the same time every day.
  3. Use dental products created especially for children, such as fruit-flavored toothpaste and character toothbrushes.
  4. Make the child’s dental care routine playful. Sing, play music, or have funny conversations with your child’s teeth.
  5. Pretend to brush the teeth of your child’s favorite doll or stuffed animal.
  6. Associate tooth brushing with a pleasant activity, such as brushing right before reading your child a bedtime story.
  7. Monitor your child’s tooth brushing routine and reward consistent behavior.
  8. Brush your teeth in front of your child, making it look like fun.
