15 Dental Jokes for Kids

Get your kids laughing with these dental jokes.

Laughter can be some of the best medicine.

Did you know a joke a day can help keep the doctor away? Laughing is one of the best ways to help relieve stress, which can wreak havoc on your mind and body if you have no way to release it.

When you are stressed, your body has a ‘fight or flight’ response, and that can cause shallow breathing, your heart rate to increase, and your pupils to dilate. Studies show that long-term exposure to stress can cause obesity, cancer, heart disease, and a slew of other health problems if your stress is not dealt with. That’s why they say you should laugh a few times a day to help relieve some of the stress you have in your life, because it can help prolong your life and makes your days a little brighter.

What are some benefits of laughter?

Besides being a way to relieve stress, laughter has a few other benefits to your health. Many researchers say laughing can create a bond between people. Humans are social creatures, and laughing together can create a common bond between us, which is something humans crave. Creating bonds is another way to build trust with each other, and that is another core block humans build bonds on.

Laughing also has other benefits to your body. It can increase your oxygen intake because of the deeper breaths you are prone to take when laughing. The extra oxygen helps to fortify your bloodstream and is great for your organs. Laughing slows down your heart rate because of the extra oxygen you are bringing into your system and decreases stress hormones, which can restrict blood flow.

So the next time you are feeling stressed, take a minute to read a funny joke, and you can have an instant boost to your health.

Encourage good dental habits.

If your child likes jokes and loves to laugh, sharing funny jokes during teeth brushing time is a great way to spend a few moments bonding each day, and a good day to relieve a little stress, as well. During this time, you can remind your child about the importance of proper oral health, including brushing their teeth at least two times a day for a minimum of two minutes at a time, flossing daily, and using mouthwash with fluoride to help strengthen the enamel on their teeth.

Ensure you help your child practice proper brushing techniques by holding the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and brushing with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste in smooth circular motions. It’s also important not to press too hard on your teeth or scrub at them to avoid damaging the enamel.

Remember that many children learn by watching and copying you, so taking the time to brush your teeth with your children every day is a great way to enforce the importance of good dental habits early in their lives.
