Ten tips: This is how children enjoy brushing their teeth
A kid should have fun brushing his teeth. The milk teeth already play an important role in the child's development. Find here 10 good tips on how to make brushing your child's teeth fun and dental care a daily routine.
Do not let brushing your teeth fall under the table.
Which parents don't know this: It's already late, the child is dawdling, now it should also brush its teeth. Quickly a unnerved "Go to bed, we'll clean tomorrow" falls. An understandable reaction, but one that should not become a habit. The consequences can be tooth decay, toothache or inflamed gums.
And not only that: The milk teeth pave the way for the permanent teeth and must be cared for carefully. Inflamed milk tooth roots may disturb the healthy development of the following teeth in a sensitive way. And: Infections sometimes lead to abscesses - and that may even mean a fat cheek. The first set of teeth is also important for the training of the jaw and supports language development. If the front teeth fail prematurely, the sound formation can be impaired.
Be a role model when brushing your teeth
It is very important that you are a role model for your child. Children learn by imitation. It is best to brush your teeth together with your child and show him that he belongs to your life and not only your child has to brush his teeth.
Brushing teeth together
It makes sense to introduce collective family tooth brushing after meals. Because brushing teeth together, always at the same time, motivates. The milk teeth should be cleaned for at least two minutes in the morning and evening. Even into school age, children need a "success check": This means that parents may have to clean up after school. In our article "From when can my child brush itself?" you can read about the age at which a child can take over which tasks when brushing teeth. Brushing your teeth in the evening is best integrated into the sleep ritual.
Explain brushing your child's teeth
In order for your child not only to chew on the toothbrush, but also to brush effectively, you must explain to him what tooth brushing is all about. Your child should understand that when brushing teeth, it is not only the toothbrush in the mouth that has to move a little back and forth. If it knows that it should brush so that something comes loose from the teeth, it has a reason for brushing teeth. Also the hint that it can eat only sweet things, if the teeth are cleaned afterwards also again, can be helpful. So talk to your child about brushing your teeth early and again and again and try to make the sense of brushing clear to him. Suitable children's books on the subject can also be helpful.
Brushing your teeth with fun - Ten tips
With a few more simple tricks you can bring your child closer to dental care in a playful way while brushing your teeth and have lots of fun with it. Why don't you try one or two of these?
- I brush with mummy, mummy with me! Just when your child is still small, this is a good way to convince him to brush his teeth. Your child can brush your teeth and you can brush your child's. At some point everyone does it on their own top and the other one on the bottom and with time brushing their teeth is quite normal.
- A great hourglass or a toothbrush with funny noises may motivate your child to brush his teeth. If the sand trickles through the glass or the clown hand on the clock continues to run, the child is distracted, but must also fulfill its task in time. Bored? In that short time? No way! And the teeth get jerk-zuck clean.
- Singing! Little rhymes like "Brushing your teeth, brushing your teeth, that's what every child has to do. Brushing teeth, brushing teeth until they are clean," spread a cheerful mood. Sing together with your child and then off with the toothbrush in your mouth.
- Listen to music! Ever done a toothbrush dance? Put your child's favorite music in the bathroom and then listen to music with the toothbrush in your mouth. If you notice that the teeth are not brushed properly, then the music goes out. Maybe there's even a great toothbrush song?
- Did your kid choose his own toothbrush? If not, then give it a shot. Go to a shop with your child and let him choose the most beautiful toothbrush himself. If it is enthusiastic about the toothbrush and finds it beautiful, it will usually proudly use it. Especially if you motivate your child to present it after the purchase: "Has grandma seen your great new toothbrush yet?"
- If your child likes hand puppets anyway, then perhaps this is the right solution. With the hand puppet your child can have a great time. If the doll wants to look into her mouth, but wants to take the toothbrush with her and brushes her teeth on the left and right, it's even fun.
- Teeth as friends! A little story to fall asleep about the poor glued teeth, can also be a good way. The poor scream at night, when your child sleeps, always very loud, because they are so dirty. If, on the other hand, they are nice and clean, they are happy and can sleep well. With a little luck, your child will clean all by itself the next day - for the sake of your teeth, of course.
- Help, the dental monsters! If your child refuses to brush his teeth, tell him about the dental monsters. By brushing the teeth the teeth get a protection against the tooth monsters. But if your child doesn't brush, then they can attack the teeth and break them. The consequence for your child: He no longer gets his favorite candy. Then I'm sure your child will brush his teeth! Of course, you can also change the story.
- Hello tooth devil! Similar to the tooth monster: But it jumps through the mouth! If you want your child to brush his teeth, then open your mouth and look where he sits: "He's up on the left! Yeah, scrub it hard so it goes away! Yes, and now he's jumped to the other side..." I'm sure your teeth will be clean very quickly.
- Read books on brushing teeth! Picture books on the subject will help your child understand the processes and importance of brushing teeth. The books you will find in our article "Kinderbücher als Erziehungshilfe" are particularly beautiful.
