Trying to get my six year old daughter to brush her teeth properly is like trying to nail jelly to the ceiling - no matter what I try, she'll get distracted about 30 seconds into brushing and wonder off to do something else, and I'm constantly sending her back into the bathroom to brush them properly . She's also reached the age of wobbly teeth, and delights in using this as an excuse to brush very gently, which of course, doesn't get them clean at all .
I remember as a kid my dad giving me some special sweets just before bedtime. Before you start worrying that my dads a dreadful old pervert, or some terrible parent who doses his children up on sugar at night, let me clarify - although I was told they were sweets, they were actually disclosing tablets .
These are small blue tablets with a little glucose in to sweeten them up , and a box of 12 cost me around £1.75 from Boots . They can be used by children six years and over, so my daughter is just the right age .
To use these, you simply brush your teeth as usual, and then put one tablet into your mouth for a few minutes, giving it a good old chew and crunch to get it all over your teeth . Then, spit the tablet out into the sink, and give your mouth a good rinse out with water .
Now, if you've brushed your teeth properly, you've nothing to worry about - but if you haven't, bits of dirt and plaque on your teeth will turn blue! Don't panic though, because a thorough brushing will remove all the blue, and all the dirt too .
My daughter actually enjoys using these at the moment, I think because they are a bit of a novelty . I've been using them three times a week for the last month, and I can definitely see some improvement in her teeth - less and less turn blue with each usage , so she's clearly brushing her teeth much better now than she used to .
I think these are a genius little product, quite fun to use for kids, and pretty inexpensive too .Teaching your children to brush their teeth well is a valuable lesson that will hopefully leave them with bright smiles for the rest of their lives, and this product makes it so easy to do that!
