Oral Health – Don’t Let the Kids Neglect Their Teeth This Halloween

Oral health is so important to our overall health, and it’s vital that we make sure our children have good oral health habits like brushing and flossing 2 to 3 times daily. This is even more important when Halloween rolls around. All that candy coming in may be tasty, but it’s also terrible for the teeth. This Halloween help your kids remember their oral health with Philips Sonicare and Furball Pal Sparkly.

Oral Health for Better Health

Oral health is key to keeping our entire body healthy. Did you know that poor oral health can lead to damage of organs like the heart, liver, and kidneys? It’s true. Bacteria enters the bloodstream through infected gums and can cause internal damage. The key to preventing that is teaching the kids about how important regular brushing and flossing are.

Philips Sonicare is partnering with Furball Pal Sparkly to help parents keep the importance of healthy teeth and gums in the forefront of children’s minds by keeping it fun. The Sonicare is easy to use, and the Philips Sonicare for Kids App helps children brush the proper length of time and hit all of their teeth well by keeping the entire process fun instead of making it a chore.

That’s so important with Halloween in full swing. I’ve never been a parent to rain on the Halloween candy parade, so I’ve always made sure that if the kids are going to eat a lot of candy, they’re also going to do an extra good job of brushing their teeth and flossing too. Together Philips and Sparkly encourage kids to take ownership of their oral health routine. It encourages the kids to practice good oral health in a way that’s fun and encouraging.

Philips is the Leader in Oral Health

In addition to encouraging the kids to take care of their mouths, Philips Sonicare also does a great job of keeping those teeth clean. The patented sonic technology drives fluid between the teeth and long the gum line, gently applying more than 500 brush strokes per second! It removes up to 75% more plaque than regular brushing in hard to reach areas, and the Connected Philips Sonicare for Kids even has a Kid Timer and KidPacer for the best brushing guidance available. Plus, it has 8 stickers so kids can customize the handle. We all know how much kids love stickers. I love that the kids can personalize their own toothbrushes. That makes brushing more fun.

Oral Health this Halloween

Halloween is almost here and because it happens only once a year it’s okay to let kids enjoy their night. But while they’re enjoying their sweet treats, it’s important not to let oral health fall through the cracks. This Halloween, help the kids maintain good oral health with the Connected Philips Sonicare for Kids and Furball Pal Sparkly. It’s a fun way to help the kids practice great oral health and still keep it fun.

My girls both received one of these Sonicare toothbrushes. My younger daughter Ainsley told me tonight when brushing her teeth and actually enjoying brushing – “This toothbrush makes me want to brush more often.” And as a result her teeth have never looked whiter! I am pretty happy with that.

I received two of the toothbrushes mentioned here for purposes of sharing. My opinion is all my own. I like these Sonicare toothbrushes because they get teeth cleaner than manual brushing alone. They are the best toothbrushes the kids have ever had. Definitely worth it. They come with a charging stand and rechargeable battery. They also come with a two year warranty. The company recommends replacing the brush heads roughly every 3 months.

    Brushing teeth after eating candy is very important. I used to encourage my kids to swish water around their mouth if they were having a piece of candy after school. I like using interactive fun that encourages kids to brush their teeth!

  • Melissa

    Those are great tooth brushes! This time of the year is worst for cavities! The increase in the sugar from the candy is hard on the teeth!! I love the addtitions that come with this brush to really encourage kids to brush!

  • Angela Harris

    I agree, it’s so important especially around this time of year with all of the candy and treats they will be eating.

  • Kathy

    I need to get these for my girls. They’re very good about brushing their teeth though. I think these toothbrushes look great for kids.

    This is a great reminder since Halloween involves extra treats that kids might not normally have. Plus, some types of candy sticks to your teeth too. So it is super important to brush them.

    it is so difficult to brush my wiggly toddler’s teeth. maybe if he had something fun like this, he’d do a better job of it himself. it’s my least favorite part of getting him ready for bed lol.

    Taking care of your teeth is so important. Halloween season with all the sugary candy is definitely a time of year to take extra care of them.
