Great Oral Hygiene Starts with Healthy Habits at Home


Before we dive into the Aquafresh Brush Time App, with its addictively unforgettable songs to brush your teeth to, let’s explore why ensuring our children brush their teeth for 2 full minutes each time is essential for their oral health.

To keep teeth strong and healthy, having a consistent brushing routine using specially formulated children’s tooth care products is vital for little ones. Regular brushing helps to remove plaque build-up that can lead to tooth decay if ignored.1

According to the latest research on brush-time, two minutes is the minimum length we should be brushing our teeth to remove as much plaque as possible.2 This is especially important for kids, whose milk teeth are susceptible to cavities. In England, a quarter of 5-year-olds experience tooth decay.3

However, it’s no secret that kids aren’t the most patient among us. How can you keep them interested and having fun while brushing their teeth for two whole minutes? That’s where the Aquafresh Brush Time App comes in!

Other Things You Can Do to Create a Fun Teeth Brushing Routine

  • Whether it’s just one tooth or a whole mouthful, it’s important to ensure that all your kids’ teeth are thoroughly brushed from the moment they appear. Why not try initiating some games with your little one during brush time by encouraging a wide-open mouth (like a Hippo) when brushing to inject a sense of fun into the activity and ensure every tooth gets a complete clean.
  • A missing tooth can sometimes make brushing painful – having a gap in your mouth is never fun. Luckily, the magic of the tooth fairy can help keep a smile on their face until their new teeth grow in.
  • If they’re old enough, you can reward consistent tooth brushing to get your little one interested in maintaining their oral health routine. Offer small prizes as an incentive or create a tooth brushing chart with gold stars for every successful 2-minute brush.

The earlier your child begins looking after their teeth, the easier it will be for them to maintain a healthy mouth well into adulthood. Try our Brush Time App today and discover how our catchy 2-minute teeth brushing songs can transform your kids’ brush time routine.
