4 Catchy Tunes For Your Child’s Toothbrush Time

While early on, parents care for the children’s teeth, it’s important that children eventually learn to care for their own. After all, your children will not stay children forever. Even older children must engage in the act of tooth-brushing on their own eventually. However, not all children get the opportunity to be properly taught to brush.

Learning to brush their teeth will set them up for a lifetime of healthy smiles. As a result, they will be less likely to develop cavities and other harmful, oral-related conditions in the near future. Fortunately, this also usually means they will be more likely to have healthy teeth for life.

So, what can be done? Fortunately, there are many tooth-brushing songs out there for children to teach them the importance of brushing their teeth:

“Brush Your Teeth” by StoryBots

Lyrics:

Up, down, front and behind
Brush ’em all around, ’til they sparkle and shine
‘Cause cavities are meanies, and meanies don’t belong in your mouth!

So everybody do the chh-chh-chh-chh, chh, chh
Like your dentist taught ya, go chh-chh-chh-chh, chh, chh

If you like to nibble, gnaw, bite
Munch and crunch
If you like chewin & chompin’, and chowin’ down lunch
Then don’t brush like you’re in a rush
Scrub ’em every which way!

So everybody do the chh-chh-chh-chh, chh, chh
Now all together, do the chh-chh-chh-chh, chh, chh

And when you open your mouth to speak
You don’t want your breath smelling like rhinoceros feet!
So ya better brush up on your brushin’!

Everybody do the chh-chh-chh-chh, chh, chh
Like your dentist taught ya, go chh-chh-chh-chh, chh, chh
Come on people, do the chh-chh-chh-chh, chh, chh
Go brush your teeth!

“Brush, Brush, Brush Your Teeth” by Ultra Kids Zone

Lyrics:

Brush, brush, brush your teeth,
Brush it every day
Father, mother, brother, sister
Brush it every day!

“Brushing Song” by Videogyan 3D Rhymes

Lyrics:

I get up in the morning
and go to brush my teeth
I take the brush, drop the paste
And go round and round

Round and round, round and round
up and down n up and down

Round and round, round and round
up and down n up and down

Brushing keeps our teeth
Healthy and clean
Every morning every night
I brush my teeth to make it bright

“The Toothbrush Song” by Andrew Huang

Lyrics:

Oh, we’re gonna brush our teeth (x3)
Hey hey, hey hey

Oh, we’re gonna brush our teeth (you gotta brush ’em) (x3)
Hey hey, hey hey (you gotta brush ’em)

The brightness of your pearly whites is priceless
It’s righteous, you don’t want that gingivitis
I might just brush twice or thrice, i like this
I need fresh breath to be rocking a mic with
My philosophy’s to floss my teeth properly
Then pop this wee toothpaste cap off
You gotta squeeze more than just a drop on these bristles
Put the brush under the tap, give it a drizzle

And then we’re brushing ’round and ’round

Chorus
We’re brushing side to side
We’re brushing up and down
Open your mouth up wide
We’re brushing: front to back. back to front. tooth by tooth
Until we get every one

Oh, we’re gonna brush our teeth (x3)
Hey hey, hey hey

Oh, we’re gonna brush our teeth (you gotta brush ’em) (x3)
Hey hey, hey hey (you gotta brush ’em)

Now when you’re brushing your teeth
Don’t be too rough on your gums
And try to always remember
You should be brushing your tongue
From the front to the back
Attacking the plaque on your teeth
‘Cause if your chiclets went and fell out
Well then how would you eat?
To keep your breath smelling fresh and your teeth real strong
You only need to brush for about the length of this song
So once in the morning and once at night, let’s sing it
Hold on, my mouth’s got so much toothpaste in it!

Repeat chorus

Oh, we’re gonna brush our teeth (x3)
Hey hey, hey hey

Oh, we’re gonna brush our teeth (you gotta brush ’em) (x3)
Hey hey

Bottomline

Although it takes time to develop an oral hygiene habit, songs like the latter are encouraging for children. The lyrics are catchy. Additionally, educational songs like the latter can teach youngsters how and why to brush their pearly whites. Furthermore, simply listening to these songs is entertaining and helps children develop musical intelligence.

Apart from dental songs, it’s still vital that you monitor your children brushing their teeth. Up until the age of 7 or 8, kids need the guidance from their parents to ensure they’re doing a good job. As children become more independent with their brushing, they can be confident and proud in maintaining their beautiful teeth.

As a result of your child engaging in good oral health practices, you can save them from scary, future dental procedures. Of course, this also means you as a parent get to save on dental costs. Nevertheless, do what’s best for your kids’ teeth; sometimes it all starts with a fun song!
