How do you encourage your kids to brush their teeth daily? How do you promote a good oral hygiene routine? And what about meals… how do you protect teeth between brushings? My girls often think that running a tooth brush quickly over their teeth is all it takes to clean them. I tend to think differently.
Orbit for Kids
Luckily, one thing my girls do enjoy is Orbit for Kids sugarfree gum. Whether they are chewing the Original Bubble Gum or Strawberry Banana flavor, they simply enjoy being able to chew it. As their mom, I like knowing that Orbit® for Kids protects their teeth between brushings. Did you realize there were actually benefits to chewing sugarfree gum?
By chewing sugarfree gum, such as Orbit for Kids, you can aid in cleaning the mouth of food debris that may be caught in between teeth. Plus, it also stimulates the saliva flow, which in turn helps to protect teeth by reducing plaque acids and strengthening teeth.
My girls simply think its fun to chew… and tastes great. Whereas the Original Bubble Gum flavor has been a longtime favorite, the Strawberry Banana is quickly gaining favor. It is now their most preferred. And I can feel better knowing that, in addition to brushing, flossing, and rinsing, we now have another fun, easy way to continue protecting their teeth. It is a win-win situation for all us.
Of course, that does not mean they have to stop their regular oral hygiene routine. Here are a few tips we use to continue to a encourage proper brushing routine:
Of course, my girls? They really just want to be enjoy the great flavor of Orbit for Kids… and blow bubbles (or at least try).
How do you make brushing and flossing fun?
