November is here, and the team at Children’s Dental in Dallas is thrilled to celebrate National Brush Your Teeth Day on November 1st, 2022. Although it takes place only one day, we love to make it more fun as we enter the holiday season. To commemorate National Brush Your Teeth Day properly, we put together a list of ways you too can celebrate by making brushing fun!
Tip 1: Brush Your Teeth to a Song
Music has a way of making everything more fun. Brushing your teeth is no exception. Find a song that is around 2 minutes and 30 seconds and play it while you brush! You can move to the rhythm as you clean the food off each tooth. Not sure what song to pick? A lot of brushing songs already exist too! Just remember to make sure it’s something fun that you won’t get tired of any time soon!
Tip 2: Brush Your Teeth at the Same Time Every Day
Establishing a routine is key to ensuring you get things done. We recommend brushing your teeth as soon as you wake up and once again before bed. Sometimes it can be easy to forget to brush at the end of a long day, but we promise that if you make a habit of brushing before you lay down, it won’t take long for you to get used to it. Besides, who doesn’t love going to bed with teeth that feel clean?
Tip 3: Brush Your Teeth with A Friend!
Everyone needs to brush their teeth twice a day, so why not do it together? Maybe that means a sibling, or your parents, but it creates accountability for everyone when it’s done together. When one person forgets, the other can remember! It might not always work out with the timing, but we promise it’s worthwhile to have a good brushing buddy!
We love working with new patients and spreading our passion for spectacular smiles! If you feel that you need help establishing healthy habits for brushing your teeth, we are here to help. To schedule an appointment today, visit our website.
