Teeth Brushing Songs for Kids

Most kids like to learn through music. Singing songs about tooth-brushing and dental health can help you remember what you’re supposed to do to clean your teeth the right way and become a tooth-brushing expert. You can also sing inside your head while you’re brushing, so you can have fun while protecting your oral health. Some of the best tooth-brushing songs can be sung to tunes that you already know!

Brush Your Teeth” (Use the Melody of “Jingle Bells” to Sing Along)

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!

Brushing your teeth does more than just clean them. It makes sure that you have a healthy and bright smile to show off to the world. To put your best smile forward, you should follow specific steps every time you put a toothbrush in your mouth. Singing an easy song to the tune of a popular song like “Jingle Bells” can help you remember everything that you have to do to clean each tooth and protect your smile.

I’ve Been Brushing” (Replace the Lyrics 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!

Brushing is important because it can help protect against tooth decay. If you don’t take care of your pearly whites and regularly clean them, the outer layer of your teeth can become damaged and you’ll have to make more dental visits to fix the problem. Tooth decay can hurt and make eating, talking, and playing hard. Some kids even have trouble getting good grades in school because their tooth pain distracts them. Putting in some hard work to keep your chompers clean and healthy can keep you out of a dentist’s chair and give you more time to concentrate on your schoolwork and fun activities.

Brush, Brush, Brush Your Teeth” (Use “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” for the Tune)

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.

Good brushing techniques can also help you get rid of a thin film on your teeth called plaque. If you don’t regularly remove plaque, the film’s bacteria can put holes in your teeth. These holes can lead to cavities. Plaque can also affect your gums and make them hurt, swell up, and change color from pink to red. Brushing at least twice a day, flossing, and rinsing can help you fight plaque buildup.

Got My Toothpaste, Got My Brush” (Change the Lyrics to “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”)

Got my toothpaste, got my brush,
I won’t hurry, I won’t rush.
Making sure my teeth are clean,
front and back and in between.
When I brush for quite a while,
I will have a happy smile

Take your time when brushing. While it can be tempting to hurry up and finish, good cleaning techniques call for reaching every spot and brushing for at least two minutes. If you need to, use a clock to time yourself! Your dental health can depend on the time you put into brushing. Remember that you don’t have to brush hard to clean the right way.

This Is the Way We Brush Our Teeth” (Sing to the Same Melody as “London Bridge”)

This is the way we brush our teeth,
Brush our teeth, brush our teeth.
Gently, gently, round and round,
To keep them clean and sweet.
You will have a pretty smile,
Pretty smile, pretty smile.
You will have a pretty smile,
Because you brushed your teeth.

Teaching kids good oral hygiene is important for their dental health. Many parents know this, and some sing tooth-brushing songs to their babies to get them used to the idea of using a toothbrush. If you have a little brother or sister, ask your parents to sing a simple song about tooth-brushing while they’re wiping your brother or sister’s gums after eating. Sharing your love and knowledge of brushing can be one of the best gifts that you give to them!
