Teaching Kids How To Brush And Floss

For older kids and adults, we have educational posts that illustrate and how to floss and how to brush your teeth. For younger kids, we found a great activity using egg cartons to help them practice!
Sometimes it is hard to see if kids are using the proper technique when brushing. This oversize mouth model helps kids practice, and allows you to show them each area that they should brush on their teeth.  If you don't have time to do the craft, simply have them practice brushing the top, outside, and inside of an egg carton. When flossing, make sure kids remember to curve the floss into a C shape against each tooth when they reach the gums and gently rub the floss back and forth (illustrated example). 

Flossing daily and brushing twice a day for two minutes will help you enjoy a lifetime of beautiful smiles!
