Taking good care of your smile should be fun! Want to get your family excited about taking care of their teeth? Here are some fun dental tools for the whole family to up everyone’s brushing game.
If you’ve been brushing with the same toothpaste for years, it’s no surprise if your dental routine may have begun to feel a bit… routine. If you’re feeling less-than-satisfied with your brushing, it may be time to try something new. There are many new varieties of toothpaste available now that are designed for targeted results. Whether you’re looking for extra whitening power, dynamic sensitivity protection, superior tartar control, or an adventurous new flavor, there’s something for everyone!
When talking about fun dental tools for the whole family, the floss pick is a tiny but mighty contender. If you avoid flossing because you tire from getting the hang of winding a long strand of floss around your fingers or if your child struggles to thread floss under and through their braces, floss picks may be your new best friend.
Floss picks differ from traditional floss because they are designed with an easy to hold plastic handle that features a short strand of floss stretched across one end. There are special types of floss picks designed specifically to fit under braces brackets as well as floss picks designed just for kids with fun colors, characters, and flavors, so make sure to choose the right floss pick for everyone in the family!
Last but not least, electric toothbrushes may top the list of fun dental tools for the whole family. With added features like built-in timers, pressure sensors, and the capability to connect with smartphone apps to provide habit tracking and real time tips to improve brushing technique through interactive games, it’s no wonder this tool is a favorite among our patients.
If you need help selecting new dental tools for your family, don’t hesitate to ask your dentist about the latest products so they can help you find the tools that will best fit your family’s needs, lifestyle, and budget.
