Did you know that May 16th through June 16th is National Smile Month? Well, if not, you do now. Good oral hygiene is just as important to your health as eating right, getting enough sleep and exercise, and should be part of everyone’s healthy lifestyle.
Part of having a great smile is visiting your dentist regularly. Some dentists recommend every 4 months, and some do every six months. Whatever your dental schedule, keeping up on your oral hygiene in between visits is important. Did you know that you should replace your toothbrush every two to three months (or sooner if it’s worn)? That means, we shouldn’t wait for our dental appointments to get new toothbrushes!
Part of National Smile Month is encouraging people to make sure they are brushing more than once a day. Brushing before bed is very important in keeping a healthy smile, but they want you to know you should be brushing at least TWICE a day. Three times a day is even better, but we all know it’s not always possible.
Children’s oral health is super important. Teaching them about it early, will ensure they keep a healthy oral hygiene schedule. You should help and watch your children brush up to at least seven years of age. My son is ten, and I still watch him brush, and help from time to time. With his oral sensory issues, I need to make sure he is getting in there and doing a good job. Your kids should brush for two minute too!
This is where Bright Beatz comes in! Brush Buddies makes brushing fun for kids, and makes sure they are brushing correctly as well. They sent us their Bright Beatz Shopkins brush and the Shopkins Travel Kit to check out.
The Bright Beatz brush is adorable! It lights up and plays music for two minutes, that way your child knows they have brushed the appropriate amount of time. The travel kit comes with a basic tooth brush, dental floss, and a two minute sand timer. Again, this will ensure your child is brushing long enough.
They have so many items to choose from. Maybe your kiddo isn’t into Shopkins? That’s okay. They also have brushes that sing What Does the Fox Say?, Gangnam Style, a LMFAO brush and more! They have WWE, cute stand up animal brushes, and more!
So take part in National Smile Month, and instill good brushing habits in your children with Bright Beatz! Head on over to their website and be sure to check them on out on social media. Find them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube.
