4 Fun Tooth Brushing Tips From Eagle River’s Best Family Dentist, Anchorage, Alaska

Nothing is better than your child’s smile—which is why you insist your kids brush their teeth. Kids, however, don’t always understand the importance of polishing up their pearly whites. If brushing is a battle, Discovery Dental will help. With an entire team specially trained and experienced in kids’ dentistry, this Eagle River, Alaska-based dentist practice is well-versed in teaching children healthy dental care habits.

Learn how to get your kids excited for brushing with these tips from their staff:

  • DentistToothy Togetherness: Get enthusiastic about dental care and your kids will too. When it’s time to brush before bed, express your excitement about this awesome evening ritual. Then brush together for a fun family activity, complete with silly mirror faces and lots of sudsy giggles.
  • Get Your Groove On: Turn tooth brushing into a party with a nightly dental care dance party. Make a playlist of songs around two minutes long—the length of a solid brushing session. Crank one up every night while you brush, and break it down on the bathroom floor when you’re finished busting plaque.
  • Chomper Challenges: Bring a little silliness to “boring” brushing. Turn over a two-minute timer and challenge kids to finish exactly when it dings. Dare siblings to see who can brush the longest or work up the foamiest mouth. See if you can stand on one foot for the whole time you’re brushing.
  • Cool Gear: Let your child pick out their own fun kids’ toothbrush for a new “toy” they’ll be excited to use. Unusual toothpaste flavors, like bubblegum and strawberry-banana, can also make brushing better suited to your child’s taste. 

For help teaching your children brushing techniques and other good dental care habits, turn to the kids’ dentistry team at Discovery Dental.  Committed to caring for kids throughout the Eagle River area, this trusted dentist works hard to lay the foundations for strong teeth and healthy habits.
