No matter how old you are, brushing your teeth can be a fun and exciting activity! Follow these 5 tips to freshen up your oral health care routine.
- Try a New Toothbrush
- Switch Your Toothpaste Flavor
- Incorporate Flavored Floss
- Listen to Music
- Reward Yourself for Good Health
Tired of using the same old toothbrush? Take advantage of the fact that you should change your toothbrush every 3 months to prevent bacteria growth and try something new! Pick toothbrushes that are different colors, or even experiment with electric toothbrushes, which dentists believe deliver a better clean than manual toothbrushes do. If your kids are tired of their brushing routine, give them the opportunity to choose their own toothbrush to make the process more fun. Just be sure to choose a toothbrush with soft bristles because medium and firm bristles can damage your enamel.
If you’ve been using the same toothpaste for as long as you can remember, it may feel less exciting to brush your teeth. Experiment with different flavors and brands to keep your dental routine interesting.
People often forget to floss because they don’t think it’s an important thing to do. The tight spaces in between your teeth are quite hard to clean and floss is the best tool to get the job done. Use a flavored floss to make it more exciting to break out the floss after brushing your teeth.
You brush your teeth early in the morning and right before bed, so why not listen to uplifting music to get ready for the day and relaxing music at night to unwind while you brush your teeth?
Start a “No Cavities Club” for your household! For every time you or your kids get a clean bill of health from the dentist, treat yourselves to a fun activity. It will motivate all of you to keep a consistent brushing routine!
