Make Dental Hygiene Fun with Songs For Kids

Dental hygiene songs for kids are a great way to have your child learn about and remember techniques for good oral health. When children learn through music, they might not even realize they’re having fun while setting healthy lifetime habits.

“Teeth brushing” songs set to familiar tunes make learning about dental health fun and easy. Learn more at your local Kool Smiles.

Songs for Kids about Dental Hygiene

Learning the right way to brush teeth will help kids develop healthy smiles. Even babies who don’t have teeth yet should have their gums wiped down after each feeding.

Toddlers and children can sing the following songs to make brushing their teeth lots of fun. 

Brush Your Teeth (Sing to the tune of “Jingle Bells”)

Brush your teeth,
Brush your teeth,
Give your teeth a treat.
Brush up and down and all around,
To keep them clean and neat!
Brush them once,
Brush them twice,
Brush three times a day.
Brush up and down and all around,
Keep cavities away!

Tooth decay happens when the hard, outer layer of teeth are destroyed. Because untreated tooth decay can lead to problems with children eating, speaking, playing, and learning, children should learn how to take care of their teeth as early as possible.

I’ve Been Brushing (Sing to the tune of “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad”)

I’ve been brushing with my toothbrush,
Brushing every day.
I’ve been brushing with my toothbrush,
It’s how I can fight decay.
All my teeth are gonna sparkle,
How proud I will be.
Every time I want to smile, my
Teeth will shine for me!
Always brush your teeth,
Every single day.
Keep those cavities away!
Use your brush and paste,
Just the way you should,
Keep your smile a-looking good! 

Plaque is a clear film of bacteria that coats your teeth. When you don’t brush your teeth properly to remove plaque, bacteria can eat holes in your teeth, causing cavities. Plaque can also cause gingivitis, making your gums red, swollen, and painful. 

Brush, Brush, Brush Your Teeth (To the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

Brush, brush, brush your teeth.
At least two times a day.
Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning,
Fighting tooth decay. 
Floss, floss, floss your teeth.
Every single day.
Gently, gently, gently, gently,
Whisking plaque away.
Rinse, rinse, rinse your teeth
Every single day.
Swishing, swishing, swishing, swishing,
Fighting tooth decay.
