As parents we have big jobs from the moment our children come into our families. So many lessons to teach, habits to create, and memories to make. Some of those lessons and habits are less loved by most. One of those lessons that we have found to be one of the less loved habit is dental care. Now, that being said; we know how important it really is to learn how to take care of your teeth at a young age.
No one enjoys cavities, tooth aches, painful dental work or those crazy high dental bills which means the habit and lessons of learning out how to keep your teeth and gums nice and healthy is a must!
Jude is almost seven and honestly it has taken a good 4 or so years for him to really learn how to brush his teeth and understand why we need to do it every day. Thankfully, we are in a really good routine and we are seeing less and less resistance to the activity of brushing and flossing. So, when I introduced him to TheraBreath for Kids! Oral Rinse he did freak out at first. Mostly because that is Jude, change is hard for that guy! But, now that he knows that the rinse is not scary or yucky he loves doing this after brushing his teeth.

TheraBreath answered a lot of parents wishes when they created this rinse. This rinse is perfect to use after brushing and flossing every day. My son enjoys the flavor and is able to swish the rinse without his mouth burning...you know that mouth wash burn!! Yikes! TheraBreath for Kids!

For Jude TheraBreath is perfect. I love that we have found a mouth rinse that will help him continue his healthy teeth habits! No cavities please!!
Quick Tips For Healthy Oral Care Habits for Kids:
Set a timer: I will always remember the little hourglass timer I had as a kid for my teeth brushing routines. Now there are a ton of mobile apps you can implement for those timers. Make sure kids learn that it is important to brush but brush for the correct amount of time as well!
Make it Fun: Jeremy has always sung this silly song with Jude and Teagan when they brush their teeth, even now that Jude is brushing on his own we sing the song when he brushes. Just makes the routine fun with a bit of silly memories on the side!
Flavors for the Kids: I cannot tell you how many tubes of unused children's toothpaste we have in our house right now. It took a lot of trials to find the flavor and texture that both kids could handle - so high maintenance these kids! Now that we are introduced to TheraBreath Kids I know how important it is to have a flavor that the kids enjoy and can handle. The great grape flavor is perfect for kids and Jude can swish that rinse as directed with no issues!
Fun Tooth Brushes: Kids LOVE picking out new tooth brushes. We allow them to do this once a month. It keeps them interested and committed to that healthy habit!
Sticker Charts: Jude is a bit old for a sticker chart but we do use a reward system for Teagan when it comes to teeth brushing. She does love when her chart is full and she can pick out a prize from the box.
Family Fun: Make oral care a family affair! Allow your kids to see your teeth routines. Make sure you are involved in your children's ongoing teeth brushing and mouth rinsing even if they can do it on their own.
