My kids are pretty good about brushing their teeth. I have to remind them to do it but they think it is kind of fun. One thing I do wish, though, is that they would brush longer. And except for my standing and telling them 20 times to keep brushing, nothing else has seemed to encourage a longer brush time. Not even musical toothbrushes.
So then Dr. Howard Wright (the dentist who created this toothpaste) emailed me and asked if I would like to try a new toothpaste called Vortex Color Changing Toothpaste Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste for Kids, I jumped on board.
The concept for Vortex Color Changing Toothpaste is very simple. It dispenses in two streams. One red, one blue. As my kids brush, the toothpaste turns purple on their teeth! The faster they brush and the longer they brush the easier it was to see the color change! It is really very cool!
The other thing that is really unique and great about the Vortex Color Changing Toothpaste is that it does not ‘foam’ like other toothpastes. The chemical, sodium lauryl sulfate, has been removed. So instead of having kids stop brushing because they can not breath through all of the thick foam, or the frustration of the toothpaste running down their face, there is minimal foaming causing kids to brush longer!
In addition, by taking out the chemical, the fluoride (the minimum allowed by the FDA) that is in the Vortex toothpaste adheres to the teeth and sticks, thus enhancing the actual benefits. The extra foam does not wash it off, so to speak.
I handed this toothpaste to my kids and let them use it as they would any other. Though I told them to watch to see if it changes colors, I was really interested in the non foaming aspect. As I watched, I noticed that I did not have to stand and tell them to keep brushing, nor did I have to keep wiping toothpaste off of their chins.
All three love the taste, love that it changed colors – you could see purple – and do want to brush longer! We have used it now for about two weeks and the kids run in to watch the toothpaste come out on the brush and then change colors in their mouth! We love it!
