3 Things Every Kid Needs to Keep Those Cavities Away
November 1, 2010
Last night’s scary costumes have nothing on the scary tooth decay that can result from candy overload. Want to keep your kid’s teeth healthy all year long? Here are three kids’ oral hygiene products that will make you smile.
Brush, brush, brush! The Philips Sonicare Kid’s Power Toothbrush ($70) is a great kids electric toothbrush that really cleans those teeth. Using fun sounds, it trains your kid to brush long enough to really make a difference. It also has two different sized brush heads to grow with your kid.
Floss! Flossing can be a pain, especially if your kid has tight teeth. Forget the neon floss for kids. They’re fun and colorful, but these DenTek Comfort Clean Floss Picks ($4) are easier on the gums and are really easy to slide between those teeth.
Mouthwash! You’ve got the good brushing and flossing habits down, but don’t forget to rinse with mouthwash. My son likes the way Act Kids Alcohol Free Anticavity Fluoride Rinse ($6) tastes—it’s like bubble gum—and it’s really helped keep those cavities away.
