When children first learn to brush and floss their teeth, it can be hard to tell if they're getting them clean enough, or if they're missing any spots. Chewable revealing tablets are a helpful tool for highlighting any remaining plaque after a brushing session.
How do chewable revealing tablets work?
Chewable revealing tablets contain a harmless dye that stains plaque a bright colour, thereby showing what spots have been missed during the brushing process.
This can help you pinpoint which spots in your child's mouth need more attention during brushing.
You can make use of these tablets in your children's oral hygiene routine until they've had enough practice that they're no longer missing any spots. You can try:
- Having your child chew a tablet before brushing, to show him where all the plaque is from the start, to guide him during brushing.
- Having your child brush his teeth first, and then chew on a tablet to see if he's missed anything. Or both!
Since plaque is essentially invisible, these helpful little tabs function as a great guide to problem areas, and to improve their overall oral health.
