You can help your child prevent cavities and have healthy teeth to last their lifetime! Take the 2 minutes, 2 times a day challenge with your children. Make it a healthy habit to brush twice a day. Incorporate daily flossing and you’ve created a healthy routine for life!
- The Right Toothbrush
- Kids should use a soft toothbrush. The size and shape of the brush should allow them to reach all areas of their mouth.Replace toothbrushes every three to four months, sooner if the bristles are worn out or if your children have been sick.
- Attack Plaque!
- Plaque is a sticky film of germs that forms on teeth and gums after eating. Plaque that’s not removed by brushing twice a day and flossing once a day can lead to cavities.
