Every morning I order my boys to wash up, brush their teeth, comb their hair… I am positive all they hear is blah, blah, blah! I’m a broken record of reminding them about having good hygiene.
Why brushing their teeth is such a rushed task was beyond me for the longest time. The good news is we have finally started a healthy dental routine that isn’t driving us all crazy.
We recently started using the Philips Sonicare for Kids toothbrush. Just like the adult Sonicare toothbrushes, Sonicare for kids offers a more effective brushing routine. Achieving a healthy smile in our home is less daunting with Sonicare for kids and more of a welcome routine. My boys love the Sonicare electric toothbrush. Brushing alone with a manual brush was boring and “a lot of work” to my boys.
Philips Sonicare for kids offers over 500 brushstrokes per second, and brushing removes up to 75% more plaque than a manual toothbrush. The toothbrush also offers a short series of tones (KidPacer) that tells your child when it is okay to move to the next area of their mouth.
The NEW Philips Sonicare for Kids features a replaceable front panel that can be personalized with the included design covers and stickers, giving each kid a unique looking brush that is all their own.
For BJ life is all about being carefree. Brushing his teeth for more than thirty seconds with a manual brush is like an eternity to him. With the Sonicare for kids he has a KidTimer that keeps brushing in line with a recommended two minutes (on high) and on low it progresses from 1 minute to 2 minutes over time. At the end of the KidTimer a congratulatory song plays and the handle turns off letting my kids know they have successfully brushed their teeth. For me that means I don’t have to stand over his shoulder making sure he gets an adequate brushing.
91% of dental professionals would recommend Philips Sonicare for Kids for their own child.
The Philips Sonicare for Kids rechargeable toothbrush is available January 2014; MSRP $49.99.
