As kids brush, the brush communicates to the user to brush up and down or in small circles. For kids used to brushing side to side, they may be frustrated at first to learn to brush in a different way. The BriteBrush does not respond if a child doesn’t brush up and down. So it can be a challenge. However, once kids learn to brush this way, it will be better for the long haul!
When kids brush in the correct manner, the games and music keep them brushing for the American Dental Association (ADA) guideline for brushing for two minutes, twice per day. There are cues to tell kids when to switch sides, motivation with sound effects, and virtual rewards.
Parents will love that an extra soft-bristled brush head is included, along with pre-loaded AAA batteries. The recommended age for the Baby Shark brush is kids ages 3 and up with parental assistance. The suggested age for the Game Brush is kids ages 5 and up. However, these are so fun that older kids and grown-ups may find it a novel way to brush, too!
Both brushes have “Parent Check Light” circle at the bottom of the brush handle. If it is green, you know they aced their brushing. Yellow means it was decent but brushing could be improved. Red means they could have done better — so it’s a good opportunity to review their brushing technique and have a conversation about oral care.
Some other delightful dental features to note: You can reduce the volume. To do so, make sure the brush is turned off, then press and hold the button on the handle until you hear “low volume,” or a vibration, then release the button. Another feature is that the BriteBrush Gamebrush and BriteBrush Baby Shark brush heads are interchangeable.
Whether it’s the BriteBrush Gamebrush or BriteBrush Baby Shark brush. kids can brush and play twice a day to keep the cavities away!
