Ever wonder just how well your children, or even you, are doing at brushing your teeth? Smile Brilliant wants to help!
*Disclaimer: I was sent a box of these to try out and share my personal review on them. I was not otherwise paid or endorsed. All opinions are strictly my own unless otherwise stated.*
My kids hear from their dentist quite often about proper care of their teeth. We have gone over it, but it doesn't always seem to click with them. Does this sound like something you have to deal with at home? If so, I think you need to look into plaque highlighters.
What are they?
Little tablets that color left behind germs like plaque! They show you what was missed so that kids (and adults too) can learn to better brush and protect their teeth.
How does it work?
It is actually pretty simple. Have your kid brush their teeth. You give them one tablet. They chew, while counting to 30. Then they swish everything around and spit out the remainder. Now you can see if they had done such a great job with brushing or not.
If you see staining like in the pictures, then you know they missed some spots. They can now go back over those spots, brushing and rinsing until no more pink remains.
This is a great tool for teaching proper brushing. It is one thing to tell them the way, but this allows for them to see actual results! They can start to see where they are missing to develop a better pattern. Or shall I say, a habit. It was quite informative to us!
Why are they important?
Think of it like this. You want something to last a longer time, you have to put in good maintenance, right? This is a training too that will instill long term brushing habits that will protect their teeth. Could also save you money as a parent in dental hygiene bills. After all, the more they care for their teeth, the less time you are spending with the dentist or work in trying to get through to them!
