How do i get my younger brother start brushing his teeth?
he's 13 years old and i honestly think its been years since he's brushed his teeth. its so disgusting. whenever i point it out to him that he needs to start brushing his teeth he gets all sassy with me and tells me to shut up. i also point it out to my mom and she says that she knows, but she won't do anything about it. so what is something that i could do or maybe see if my mom will do to encourage him to brush his teeth more often?

thanks (:

eww. Maybe show him pictures of teeth that haven't been brushed for years and tell him gross stuff about forming bacteria and stuff. Just gross him out to hysterics until he brushes his teeth every hour.

Well, not only does not brushing your teeth result in bad breath and yellowing of the teeth but it can and will result in cavities, root canals, and even losing teeth all together. Tell him this. Brushing his teeth is free and takes no more than 5 minutes. A trip to the dentist is a couple hundred bucks and takes hours.

Tell him, "This is what your teef will look like:"


That last one makes me want to puke! ICK! Show him those fer sure. ;)

Hey, well since he's 13, I recommend you use the, " do you want a girlfriend?" approach, I think something would click tbh...

Ash =]
Tell him they will fall out and or no one will ever kiss him because of it. Go with him to his friends and tell him his breath stinks and tell him he should start brushing his teeth in front of them.

tell him he could get gum desease and tell him tht he could have fake teeth by next year tell him stuff that will scare him into brushing his teeth tht will help it helped me anyway.

tell him you are taking him to a arcade then say to him that you have to drop in to the dentist to pick somthing up then take him in to the dentist room and get the dentist to have a look.

always works with my little bro

He'll learn when his teeth rot from the inside out and he'll have to eat all his meals as some kind of smoothie

i know its probably harsh but its for his on good, take a pic of him post it somewhere where a lot of people would make fun of him and maybe he would be so embarrassed he might start brushing his teeth. that is mean and all but if its to make him brush his teeth i think its worth it!

Google image some pictures of bad teeth- show him what his could look like in a few years. Its not pretty.


show pics of people with horrific and skanky teeth. And then show pics of celebritys with bad teeth like that singer of that popular xmas song about fairytale of new york. Take him to a dentist that could say that he will need braces. Scare him into it.

GO into the bathroom with him and make him do it... ... it is something he should be doing regardless... They have that rinse you can buy that shows the grime on your teeth so you can see where you aren't brushing...buy that and show him the damage...... maybe you need to actually explain to him how you get a cavity...also show him pictures of cavitys and pictures of rotten teeth and explain what causes this- not brushing teeth. Another suggestion would be telling him that it is a BIG turnoff to girls, seeing yellow teeth-with plaque

Also you could tell your mom "do yuo really want to pay for root canals, " And just tell your mom it is disgusting and when they see your brothers teeth they are going to think that it is her fault?
haha i don;t know.

13? really? wow. have you tried buying good tasting toothpaste? isn't that made for like younger kids though? or maybe just let him wait till his teeth fall out.

thats how my little sis is hehe!.....but i just make fun of her all the time but im allowed to curse and say mean things so it works for me. tough love i guess tell him hes not gonna get a girl friend if he doesnt brush his teeth =D

Point out alot of celebrity blokes who have really nice teeth and really nice women. and say "see having nice teeth leads to loads of nice things" show him bad teeth on google!

tell him no girl is going to want to come near him, let alone kiss him, with stinky breath! Also, tell him his teeth are going to give him horrible pain and cost him tons of money in dental work when he is an adult. You could start using those whitening strips and see if he'll use them with you. The directions state you have to brush your teeth first! Do you think he may have some painful issues with his teeth or gums going on and maybe that's why he won't brush? Tell your mom that. If you feel like your mom isn't listening to you, maybe you could ask another adult to talk to her for you, someone who notices the problem first hand (so it doesn't look like you put them up to it). If all else fails, just wait it out, hopefully he will get over the weird phase and start brushing again soon.

maybe show him some nasty teeth online... i mean i know people who stopped brushing their for short periods of time but still mess them up.

Say that he is going to the dentist if he doesn't brush his teeth, or just do yourself a favor and take him anyway...

Rachel B
I know it;s disgusting, but it's not really your responsibility.

tell him that real men brush there teeth. then show him a slideshow of men with pretty teeth you can also threaten him

Rebecca Flanders
tell him his teeth will fall out!

hell tycoon
make him brush his teeth with chocolate for some days and then switch it with the toothpaste ...

Just let him know that his breath smells like actual dog turds, and there is no way a self respecting girl would ever kiss that.

Dave A
tell him girls probably thinks hes disgusting

Take him to the dentist and show him all those cool drills and stuff.....that'll motivate him.

find some nasty pics of tooth decay on the internet and show him what will happen

leave him alone.

get yourself a "my loser brother hasn't brushed his teeth in years" t-shirt and wear it whenever you're with him.

when all his teeth fall out and he has no girlfriend ( ever ) you can laugh and point at him.

Nash and Kobe Mutual Respect.
wow that's gross! Tell your mom to make him brush his teeth. Or you can take away his video games until he brushes his teeth.

Josh UK
Show him some pictures or videos of people with bad teeth.

Hopefully he will get a girlfriend and she will force him to sort it out!

Or tell ur mom to punish him for being so dirty or buy him an electric toothbrush.

yeaa my 7yr old lil sistah is just as disgustin u can prolly try buying him a cool hightech toothbrush that would get him interested. one way i get my sister 2 brush her teeth is everytime when she comes from school she wants to tell me something so i just tell her no you cant tell me anything till you brush your teeth. she also always likes to ask me questions so i tell her the answer to that would be go brush your teeth. everytime she says something inturupt her with "girl yo breath shtank" she eventually gets tired of it and goes and brushes her teeth.
