How to Brush Your Teeth Properly – For Kids

Yeah!… Time to brush!
Why do we brush? We brush to remove plaque and stay clean.
What’s plaque? Plaque is yucky stuff that can stick to teeth.
Plaque is bad because it’s full of nasty germs. These germs can hurt teeth by making
little holes called cavities. Plaque and cavities make teeth weaker. That’s why it’s super
important to brush all the plaque off every day. To keep healthy teeth we have to brush
for 2 minutes every morning and 2 minutes every night before bed! It’s really important
to brush your teeth the RIGHT WAY! First make sure to use a special kid’s toothbrush when
you brush. Kid’s brushes fit little mouths and have soft bristles. Put a little dot (about
the size of a pea) of fluoride toothpaste on your brush. Moms have to help babies brush
their teeth and babies can’t use fluoride toothpaste. You have to be able to spit to
use fluoride! Once you have the toothpaste on your toothbrush…open your mouth wide!
Start with the teeth in the back of your mouth and brush in little circles. Work your way
to the teeth in the front of your mouth and don’t forget to brush the gums! Move the
brush back and forth gently in short strokes. Brush the top, front, and back sides of each
tooth. Make sure you get the inside of all the teeth. When you’re done be sure to spit
out all the toothpaste. Don’t swallow the toothpaste…it will upset your tummy. When
you’re done brushing it’s time to floss. Flossing can help remove food and plaque from
in between teeth and along the gum line. Parents should start flossing their children’s teeth
as soon as they have two teeth that touch and they should floss twice a week. When you
floss, break off about 18 inches of floss. Wind the floss around your pointer finger.
Hold the floss tightly between your thumbs and fingers. Guide the floss between your
teeth using a gentle rubbing motion. Never snap the floss into your gums. When the floss
reaches the gum line, curve it into a C shape against one tooth. Hold the floss tightly
against the tooth. Gently rub the side of the tooth, moving the floss away from the
gum with an upward motion. By the time you’re 7 or so, you should be flossing every night
at bedtime with your mom and dad’s supervision. One other way we can help keep teeth clean
and healthy is by eating and drinking healthy foods. Eating healthy foods for breakfast,
lunch and dinner is the best way to keep your teeth and whole body in good shape. If you’re
hungry and want a snack, try foods like fruit, raw veggies and low-fat cheese. Stay away
from sugary soda and sweets. If you’re thirsty drink water or low-fat milk. If you brush,
floss and eat right you’ll have a beautiful smile for your entire life! Find a My Kid’s

    First time:stop

    Second time:I SAID STOP

    Third time:do it again and I will KILL you

  9. Please stop with the low fat nonsense. The issue is carbs from breads and pasta and other processed junk which spike insulin that cause stress on the arteries, the stress causes plaque to build up (it's a natural bandaid). Ancel Keys cherry picked the data to support his theory about fat and the dumb American government /AMA supported this BS. Hence the problems most Americans have from carb overload. Please for the love of future generations stop spreading this BS.

  10. Thank you for this video! I'm curious though, why push low fat milk for kids? Low fat versions usually have higher sugar content and "good fats" are healthy for kids' brain development….?

  11. If you have the courage to change the industrial paste – choose the tooth soap. It's 100% handcrafted from natural ingredients. Choose a healthier alternative to toothpaste.
