2 Ways to Make Dental Care Fun

The dental health industry is constantly renovating and creating new products to make dental health maintenance easy and fun – for the whole family. Below are two recent creative products that make brushing and flossing easier and more entertaining for children.


Sounds as awesome as the name. GumChucks is modeled after nunchucks, but the only villains GumChucks will be fighting are bacteria, plaque, and smelly breath. The flossing mechanism utilizes the “C-Shape” that allows patients to wrap floss around each individual tooth. GumChucks gives children an incentive to brush more often, hopefully daily, thereby improving oral health and reducing plaque.

To become a GumChucks flosser, families need the GumChucks handles. In addition, patients need the flossing tips that attach to each one of the GumChucks. Each flossing tip should be used only once before discarding.

And the company, GumChucks, created a line exclusively for adults so moms and dads no longer have to feel left out. Pretty soon the whole family will look forward to flossing and in half the time. For more information, feel free to visit the GumChucks official website.

Travel Toothbrush

Traveling with a family can be a hassle with so much luggage and toiletries. Try a simple solution that even complies with TSA regulations: a traveling, refillable toothbrush. The toothbrush is simple design—the handle of the toothbrush is an empty tube that can be filled with a family member’s favorite toothpaste. When it’s time to brush, just turn the dial at the bottom of the handle, and toothpaste appears on the bristles. This handy invention is great for on-the-go or traveling families. It is kid and adult friendly. The tube holds about half an ounce of toothpaste, well within the TSA guidelines for liquids in carry-on luggage.
