As kids get older, they want to feel more independent. Part of growing up includes assuming responsibility for taking care of their own teeth - without prompting from parents. Appeal to what matters to them: Kids want to look good to their peers, they want to smile in selfies and they don’t want to spend their free time sitting in the dental professional’s chair.
To teach kids more about proper brushing time, try the Disney Magic Timer app. With the free Disney Magic Timer app by Oral-B, even the most reluctant children brush longer. To unlock the fun, all you need is an Oral-B Stages product. It can be downloaded via the Apple Appstore or Google Play for Android.
The Oral-B Disney and Marvel vitality stages power rechargeable electric toothbrushes feature an EZ Timer to help encourage kids to brush for 1 minute on the top row and 1 minute on the bottom, so they brush for the dentist recommended 2 minutes. They also have extra soft bristles which are gentle on children’s gums and are appropriate for children over 3 years.
