How to Make Brushing Teeth FUN for Toddlers

My 3 year-old daughter Victoria loves to brush her teeth. It’s actually pretty funny because she has about (no joke) 10 toothbrushes. She loves to collect them and makes sure to have different colors and different characters on them. As a matter of fact, for Christmas, one of the things she asked for was a “bright pink” and “purple” toothbrush. Santa searched high and low for that specific bright pink toothbrush and fortunately found it!

She’s been watching her 4 big brothers brush their teeth – ever since she’s been old enough to know what brushing teeth actually is in our house! She loves to sit and watch them, and usually it makes her laugh because the 4 of them are crammed into the bathroom together brushing in the morning and at night, too.

I’m glad she loves to brush her teeth because she’s ensuring healthy teeth and gums. I love that at 3 years old, her biggest concern is what kind of toothbrush she has and who is on her toothpaste!

Oh, yes… Victoria gets her own very special toddler toothpaste.

Orajel™ offers a wonderful Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste that is perfect for little teeth . Truthfully, it’s a win-win for both of us. For me, I love it because it helps protect against cavities to keep young teeth and gums healthy. Victoria eats “big people” food now, so her teeth need to be cleaned and protected regularly. The Orajel™ Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste also helps to strengthen teeth, too… which is something that I’m happy with because these are her baby teeth and I want them to be as strong as possible until it’s time for the Tooth Fairy to come for a visit! It also has a fun fruity flavor, which is always a bonus for a parent when they’re hoping to get their child to brush their teeth!

Now why does Victoria love Orajel™ Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste?

It’s pretty simple – her favorite characters are right on the packaging! Talk about a smart way to connect with young kids! Paw Patrol and My Little Pony are featured on Orajel™’s Toothpaste and this is HUGE win for Victoria! Orajel™ makes it FUN for kids and I LOVE that! She watches Paw Patrol every morning, so she feels connected to he characters on the show. And when it comes to My Little Pony… well, it’s pretty safe to say that she has about 20+ ponies in her toy collection! She can name every My Little Pony without batting an eye! It’s adorable!

It’s pretty wonderful for a parent when your child WANTS to brush their teeth as much as you want them to do it! Thank you to Orajel™ for making tooth brushing time that much easier at home! Like I tell all of my kids, “make sure you have the brightest and cleanest smile at school today!”
