When it comes to getting your kids ready in the morning, brushing their teeth can feel like the ultimate chore. But establishing good dental habits is a big deal, since getting your kid into a toothbrushing routine now sets them up for success later. Once your child reaches Stage 3, aka between the ages of 2 and 10, they should be starting to learn how to brush independently.
Luckily, Orajel™ Kids is the perfect solution to help your child establish healthy oral care habits, no matter which stage they’re in. Their fluoride toothpaste formulas are made with over 99 percent naturally sourced ingredients and the added cavity-fighting power of fluoride. The non-fluoride training toothpastes are made with 100% naturally sourced ingredients and great for learning how to brush. Plus, your kids will love seeing some of their favorite characters—think: Paw Patrol, Jurassic World and CoComelon—on the packaging.
Once they’re set up with the brushing essentials, try playing a favorite song or cute, timed video (like these toothbrush timers from Orajel Kids) to up the fun factor and keep your little ones focused on the task at hand. Says mom Ali G., “I sing a song ('Brush them high, brush them low, give your smile that shiny glow'—It def was a commercial on a show they watched!) and we do a dance while the kids stand on the toilet. It’s a bit complicated, but it works!”
