Children's Dental Health Month: Twooth Timer Giveaway [CLOSED]

For our last dental product feature during National Children's Dental Health Month, I would like to present an affordable solution to a very serious problem. That problem is getting our 6yr old son to brush his teeth thoroughly. He is what you call a "speed brusher". That is why I was so happy to find the Twooth Timer. This award-winning toothbrushing timer is shaped like a real tooth and is much more fun for children than a boring kitchen timer.

The Twooth Timer is extremely user-friendly for children. It requires no batteries . . . just a twist. Simply turn the top of the timer so that the arrow points to the 1 or the 2, which indicates the minutes. This timer works similarly to a wind-up toy. Right before it reaches the end, a buzzer goes off.

There are two ways to use the Twooth Timer. You can either set the timer to two minutes and brush during the entire two minutes. The other way is to set the timer for one minute for brushing the top teeth and another minute for the bottom. We opt for setting the time for two minutes all at once because it is easier for my 6yr old to manage on his own.

Because the Twooth Timer is somewhat of a novelty item, my son uses it without being asked. It has worked like a charm to get him to brush much longer than he has been in the habit of doing. Now if I can only find a gadget that will get him to rinse his mouth better.

You can order the Twooth Timer by phone for just $9.99 plus shipping directly from The Twooth Timer Company. You can also check your local dentist office and select retail stores for this product. There is a Twooth Timer store finder to help you find a retailer near you.

Thank you to The Twooth Timer Company for sending us a sample timer free of charge to base this review upon and also for sending another timer to the winner of this contest.
