How one of our illuminated mirrors could help your child to brush their teeth effectively.

If you have only recently become a parent, you need to know how to look after your child’s teeth. It will be necessary to start regularly brushing them as soon as the first milk tooth breaks through, which tends to happen when your baby reaches about six months of age.

Make sure you brush at least twice daily — for roughly two minutes at a time — with fluoride toothpaste. You should be the one who does the brushing until the child is aged at least seven, by which point, the child ought to be able to take over.

However, as your child grows, you might want to think about replacing the bathroom mirror with one manufactured to a bespoke design of your choice. Here are some good reasons why…

The mirror can add to the bathroom’s lighting

Should a child who is ready to brush their own teeth do so in front of a mirror? Yes — as that way, they will be able to clearly see how they are positioning their toothbrush and performing the strokes. Consequently, it will be easier for your beloved to rectify any faults in their technique.

Obviously, though, the “clearly” part of the equation will depend on your beloved’s face, hand and brush in the mirror all remaining well-lit enough to be seen fully. Why settle for just overhead lighting in the bathroom when the mirror can produce some of its own illumination?

You can ask us to make you a bathroom mirror with lights arranged in dots or instead running along the mirror’s back or edge. In short, you can decide how the mirror will be illuminated.

Your child can more easily time their brushing

As acknowledged earlier in this article, it is recommended that each tooth brushing session for your child lasts about two minutes. So, when your child transitions to brushing their teeth, you might want to keep watch to make sure the two-minute rule continues to be observed.

Nonetheless, you could make things easier for your little one by setting them the goal of brushing for as long as their favourite two-minute song plays in the background. We can give you a bespoke mirror equipped with a Bluetooth speaker from which the music would play.  

In fact, beyond using it for timing the brushing, you can use your illuminated mirror’s audio Bluetooth capabilities to simply make the bedtime or morning routine more fun in general. So, you might use it to play an entire album or playlist of music, an audiobook, or a story.

Aura Spa Mode could further keep your kid engaged

Our colour-changing Aura Spa Mode mirrors incorporate RGB LED under-mirror lighting. This underlighting doesn’t merely serve as nice mood lighting when relaxing in the bath, as these colourful lights can also be a sweetener to keep your child engaged when brushing in front of the mirror (which, let’s face it, is no easy feat).

Indeed, the colour change mirrors in our range even give you the ability to choose from a number of colours. So, when it’s time for your child to brush their teeth, you could set your mirror lighting to whatever hue your child most likes while they’re getting ready for school or bedtime.

The mirror could even recharge an electric toothbrush

Are you considering introducing your child to an electric toothbrush? If so, the respected dental brand Oral-B advises that you resist doing so until your child is at least three years old. Only a manual toothbrush should be used on kids below that age.

Once your child has reached that age, though, an electric toothbrush can make the brushing process appreciably easier — and prove better at removing plaque.

If we put together a bespoke mirror for you, we can even include a 240-volt socket suitable for use in recharging an electric toothbrush as and when necessary.

You can trust us to make you a bathroom mirror with lights, a power socket, Bluetooth connectivity, and many more features besides. To learn more about what we can do to help enhance your child’s bathroom routine with the perfect illuminated mirror, please contact us.
