If it is hard for your children to instill a teeth brushing habit, there is a new product that will help them enjoy and even want to brush their teeth.
The Justin Bieber singing toothbrush by Brush Buddies has two buttons: one for when you brush your teeth in the morning and one for at night. Each button plays a popular Justin Bieber song, such as “Somebody to Love” and “Love Me”, for two minutes, which is the time we recommend for you to spend brushing your teeth.
It also has a replaceable brush head since we also suggest that you replace your brush every three months. Not only are there toothbrushes, but also floss with Justin Bieber that will encourage your tween to floss everyday like she should.
For your younger children there are other products to help them discover teeth brushing fun. Brush Buddy Talking are tooth brushes with different animals that teach your children step by step how to brush their teeth correctly. The animals talk in a merry voice to your children for two minutes while they clean their teeth. If you would like to get one, Brush Buddies can be found at any drug store and most popular retail chains.
It is vital to your children’s health to get them in the habit of good oral care such as brushing their teeth and flossing. Using these entertaining tools is a perfect way to get them excited about brushing their teeth for the rest of their lives.
