Dental Games to Teach and Entertain Kids

Teaching kids how to care for their teeth is something Kool Smiles takes seriously, so we want to make it entertaining.

The foundation of a healthy smile starts at home, and there’s no better way for kids to learn about dental health than through games. Here’s a list of games that parents can use.

Healthy Smiles: Games for Kids

Try these games with your child and learn all about dental care at home.

Brush Your Teeth

Who doesn’t love Sesame Street? In this game show, kids get to brush a monsters teeth. Kids have fun as they move the toothbrush to remove food and plaque from the front and back teeth.

The announcer cheers for your kids the whole time and encourages them to brush their teeth.

Play the game(Click “All Tools” and the game will be listed on the right side of the screen.)

Sugar Bug Blast

If your kids love Barbie, this game is for them. This game is suited for slightly older children because it requires them to use reading and matching skills.

Players need to pick tools that match the color of the sugar bugs on the teeth. There are easy and hard levels, but the goal is to clean the teeth and get a big round of applause at the end.

Play the game.

Plaque Attack

The goal of this game is to destroy the plaque monsters that are attacking the teeth. Kids have to shoot down as many monsters as they can before time is up. If your kids are younger, try Memory Match instead.

Baby Tooth Castle

This simple game asks your children to help the tooth fairy build a castle. They click on pillows to find the baby teeth underneath.

This game should help kids be less nervous about losing teeth.

Play the game.

Dental Care at Home

Children should be taught to brush twice a day for two minutes. You can use our free iPhone app to help time their brushing.

Use a soft bristle brush and just a dab of fluoride toothpaste. Once their teeth touch, use dental floss to remove bits of food between teeth.
