If there's a little one in your life who just hates to brush his teeth, try these tips from Oral-B to make the daily routine a little more fun:
1. Brush your teeth with your child to set a good example.This also helps your child to learn by watching and imitating you.
2. Choose toothbrushes and toothpaste with popular kids' characters, like Oral-B Stages, to help establish positive oral-care routines with familiar friends like Winnie the Pooh or Disney Princesses.
3. Sing your child's favorite song, such as "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," for two minutes to encourage brushing for the dentist-recommended time. For older children, play a song from their favorite pop singer for two minutes.
Making your child's brushing routine fun will encourage proper habits early and help prevent oral-care issues later in life.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
