plaque disclosing tablets how to check your kids brushing

Plaque disclosing tablets are a great way to show where you or your child might be missing with the toothbrush. Simply chew a tablet prior to brushing – it will stain the plaque so it is really visible. Then do regular brushing. After brushing you will be able to see all the spots where plaque remains.

This is a great tool to use when children are learning dexterity and proper brushing technique. With more practice, we can all be excellent brushers! After brushing there will be some remaining stain between the teeth which can be flossed out.
