As adults, we understand the importance of maintaining our teeth and gums clean to avoid dental health issues. Yet, as children, teeth brushing may seem bothersome or boring. Moreover, to educate a child in any area, the proper stimulus must exist. In other words, the child has to enjoy the manner in which they learn. The same concept is necessary to establish an oral care regimen with your children. Dr. James Stewart, your children’s dentist in Livonia, offers a few dental products that will improve the oral health of your child, while still making the activity fun.
Dental Products Your Kids Will Love
- MAM Oral Care Rabbit. This baby-friendly, soft cotton terry glove helps your little one adjust to a dental cleaning. The glove fits perfectly on either parent, and the plush bunny ears massage the baby’s gums to relieve some of their teething discomfort.
- Tom’s Brand Strawberry Toothpaste. This strawberry-flavored toothpaste works wonders for the brushing needs of a toddler. This formula contains calcium and silica to fortify their baby teeth. Though the toothpaste is not edible, swallowing a small amount is harmless to your child.
- Firefly Toothbrush. A light-up tooth can help motivate your child to brush more often. With handles that come in variety of colors and cartoon characters, and a 60-second timer to manage their brushing time, your child can begin sound brushing habits.
For older children (preteens and early teenagers), your Livonia children’s dentist recommends Brush Buddies instead. These brushes come complete with a two-minute timer, a removable head and only require a couple of batteries. Additionally, the toothbrush plays music from different artists, such as Justin Bieber to make brushing even more entertaining.
- Cavity Fluoride Rinse. To provide extra protection against cavities, this berry-flavored fluoride rinse is just right. The mouthwash will not only encourage regular rinsing, it also cleans hard-to-reach areas, such as back molars.
