Toddler Teeth Brushing Tips


Teeth are a big deal. Especially when you’re a toddler and they’re all coming in for the first time and you don’t really know what to do with them! That’s why I teamed up with Orajel to bring you these toddler teeth brushing tips will help you teach your little one to take care of their teeth!

We all know the key to happy, healthy tip is to take care of them, but kids don’t. Someone has to teach them that!

Teach Your Toddler How To Brush:

  • It’s important to start early and brush every single day. This is a good habit for everyone to be in, but if you teach your kids that it is a part of their everyday routine early on, they won’t even think twice about it. They will just remember to brush when they are older.

  • There are great tooth brushing training products out there like Orajel™ My Little Pony™ Fluoride-Free Training Toothpaste and Orajel™ Thomas & Friends™ Fluoride-Free Training Toothpaste that are non-abrasive for gentle cleaning on those brand new teeth! Make sure you have the right tools for the job. (Check out this coupon for Orajel Products here.)

  • Brush with your kids. Nothing helps a kid develop good habits faster than watching their parents! They want to be just like you. Brush your teeth together, it’s not like yours can’t use a good brushing a few times a day, right?
  • See a dentist. A lot of people wait too long on this one, and that can be a mistake. When teeth start coming in, check in with the dentist to make sure everything is where it should be. It never hurts to get them checked out!

Just remember to brush early and brush often. That’s the key to keeping those teeth looking nice for as long as your kiddo has them!

As the saying goes, ‘prevention is better than cure’ and when it comes to dental care getting your kids started on practising oral hygiene right from earlier stages can go a long way in preventing cavities and other serious issues later on. Wonderful post, Jamie. Thanks for sharing!

This is a fabulous idea! At Renken Dentistry, our pediatric dentist they offer a FYSH (Find Your Smile Here) School and teach children all about their teeth, dental hygiene and even pediatric dentistry. My kids LOVE it!

Great article! We love to see children visit us at our Buford dental office! As soon as that first tooth comes out, you should make your child's first dental appointment (no later than age 1). Instilling proper oral hygiene at an early age is key to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums!

I was scared of the dentist when I was little and I do not want my children to have those same feelings. It is good to know that it is important to start early and brush a child's teeth every single day. It would be good to see a dentist when teeth are starting to come in to show your child at a young age that visiting the dentist is okay. I will be sure to apply these tips with my children.
