Oral health is an issue that accompanies us from birth to old age. It is therefore never too early, or too late to devote more attention to the maintance of your oral hygiene.

Baby teeth start coming out when they are somewhere between 4 to 7 months old. The first teeth to come in are the two bottom teeth. By the age of 3 preschoolers have around 20 baby teeth. Children then lose their baby teeth from as early as 6 years or as late as 12 years in which time they will have a mix of both milk and adult teeth, so it is important to treat both of them with just as much attention, and the PlayBrush Smart provides you with the tools to do so.

The set-up is totally fool proof, simply attach the Smart Playbrush cap to the base of any manual toothbrush, connect to your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth and children can then choose to fight tooth monsters, paint pictures or control planes in just a matter of minutes. From each session  Playbrush measures speed, position of the brush head and brushing time, even evaluating their brushing with a personalized audio guide for children and with statistics for parents. So that while your child is treated to the games, parents have the reassurance that the Smart really is working it’s magic. 

Developed to assist children aged 3-12 years old, you’ll only disappointed they don’t make one in your size. Each Playbrush attachment is rechargeable (no batteries, 2 weeks battery life) and waterproof. Users have access to two free games (Utoothia & Utoothia Paint). However you also have the opportunity to upgrade to have more games via a small games subscription available for iOS, Android and Kindle devices.

When it comes to maintaining good oral health, here are some things to keep in mind when maintaining your child’s oral health:

  • It is essential to at  brush for 2 minutes twice daily especially after your children eat sticky or sugary foods.
  • Take them to the dentist twice a year to check for any tooth decay and avoid other tooth related complications.
  • Limit their consumption of night time drink. It is better to choose water over milk or juice when they ask for it.

The Playbrush Smart is available to buy online for £24.99 from Playbrush.
