Get Your Child To Brush Their Teeth

FUN-SHAPED TOOTHBRUSHES
Among one of the challenges, parents face with their toddlers is to get them to brush their teeth, let alone brush twice a day. Why brushing baby teeth is so important? Children get cavities too, and baby teeth, even though they fall out, have an enormous purpose behind them. Baby teeth help a child chew, smile and speak. They also hold a place for adult teeth, and if a child is losing a baby tooth before the permanent tooth erupts, it can cause crooked or crowded teeth in the future. So, kick-starting an early oral health habit, such as brushing twice a day, is the best way to prevent future cavities and safe those baby teeth until it is time for them to fall out.  

Let's look at some fun-shaped children toothbrushes, and we will turn brushing your child's teeth into a fun task for everyone. 

Remember to use a small amount of fluoride toothpaste, size of a rice grain - no more. 

Bonus tip: Sing a tune while you are brushing with your toddler, long enough for them to ensure all teeth are correctly clean. Your child will love it.
