I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of Firefly®, REACH®, and One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.
Do you struggle to get your kids to brush and rinse their teeth? Are you worried about their oral health in the future? If so, you’re like most parents. The challenge is to find ways to get your kids excited about these daily routines and provide a good foundation while they are young.
My ground rules are: Don’t put too much pressure on them and use positive reinforcement when they do brush.
Brushing your own teeth with them is also helpful as kids love to emulate their parents.
And, get them their own toothbrush and mouth rinse to make dental care fun! I suggest Firefly products. A leader in children’s oral care solutions, Firefly has recently expanded their line of toothbrushes to include even more characters and ADA-approved products. You can’t beat good clean fun at an affordable price.
Check out this Kylo Ren Lightsaber toothbrush from the Firefly Star Wars Collection! With character voices, memorable quotes, flashing lights and lightsaber sound effects, kids will want to conquer the dark side of cavities. The brush lights up for 60 seconds which is a great reminder to brush for one full minute on each row of teeth. You’ll find it at Walmart and Walgreens with a protective cap to keep any bacteria out.
In addition, the new Firefly Spiderman Pump Rinse, also found at Walmart, is fun, sugar and alcohol free and has a fruity melon flavor that kids love. Because it comes with its own convenient no-mess cup, kids can dispense just the right amount and keep your sinks clean.
Dental care is so important for many reasons. It also affects our overall health. But, who says brushing your teeth as an adult can’t be fun? I find that when you have the right tools, it really is enjoyable! Did you know that you should change your toothbrush every three months? It also needs to be changed every time you get over a cold! Replacing a toothbrush this often means that it’s a good idea to always have extras around.
I’ve been trying out the new REACH UltraClean and the REACH Advanced Design Toothbrushes and I’m a big fan of both! In fact, I actually enjoy alternating between the two to get what I feel is optimum care.
You can find the REACH UltraClean toothbrush at Walmart and Target. With its floss-like bristles and tongue cleaner, it really leaves you with that just from the dentist smooth clean feel! You can get it in a single pack or a 4-count value pack, so you’ll always have extras for guests or to take with you on the go.
The big winner for me is the REACH Advanced Design Toothbrush. It has longer outer bristles and shorter inner bristles to perfectly clean along the gum line and the plaque from each and every tooth. I really feel that I can reach way in with this brush to get the back teeth deeply clean without missing anything. This toothbrush is available at Walmart and Walgreens in a value pack of two toothbrushes.

The trick to not growing old is to: Stay curious. Keep your teeth. Stay hopeful. Do everything gracefully, yet kick when you have to. ~Carew Papritz
