Fun a Factor for Children's Dental Care
Date:3/5/2008

time to get teeth clean is a minute for the top arch of teeth and a minute for the bottom. So how does a parent get their child to cooperate? Make it fun, says Dr. Fresh, the maker of the FireFly(R), a bright and sparkly children's toothbrush that lights up and flashes.

The FireFly toothbrush was developed when Dr. Fresh (yes, he is a real person) could not get his young daughter to brush for long enough. To inspire "psychological compliance," he basically took the LCD light out of a pair of fancy sneakers and put it in the bottom of a regular toothbrush. With more research and development, he created the FireFly, which uses the same "blinking technology" in a durable, ergonomically designed toothbrush for kids.

"Most of us underestimate how long a minute really is," says Dr. Fresh. And a minute can seem interminable for an active child looking to move on to his or her next activity.

The FireFly, which blinks for 60 seconds, is a way to instill the one-minute each arch brushing routine. Have children press the button to start the LCD light housed safely in the handle of the toothbrush. Once the light stops blinking, it's time to move onto the other row of teeth. Push the button again to activate the light.

Other Dental Tips

But oral care doesn't end with brushing alone. Dr. Fresh offers additional advice.
-- Forgetting floss? Children should also floss regularly -- as early as

when they have two front teeth erupted, say experts. Flossing is really

important for molars because they are generally closer to each other

than the front teeth. Again, until they reach the age of 6, you will

have to help them. Gently lift the floss up between teeth towards the

gum and all the way through to the inside of the mouth. Don't saw --

that can damage fragile young gum tissue.

-- Time for a change: Everyone -- adults and children -- should replace a

toothbrush after thr
