Did you know that toothbrushes date back to ancient Egypt? Well, they didn’t exactly use the toothbrushes we know today. Instead, they chewed on soft sticks and used a sharpened end as a toothpick to clean food from between their teeth! These ancient toothbrushes were aptly named “chewsticks.” #DentalFAQ

We recommend establishing a "Dental Home" for your child by one year of age. Children who have a dental home are more likely to receive appropriate preventative and routine oral health care. Share this post with your friends to tell them about your dental home! #ToothLove

The most recent developments in toothpaste technology are in their whitening abilities. Whitening toothpastes can help with removing surface stains, but deeper stains will still need a deeper cleaning to remove. Children should generally avoid whitening toothpastes because they can cause sensitivity and may be too abrasive. Most toothpastes are fine for your teen (or the adults in your family) as long as it's approved by the ADA and they're using it for 2 minutes, twice a day! #2min2x

Both electric and manual toothbrushes are capable of cleaning teeth. Some people who struggle with one may see better results using the other type. We're okay with either as long as you're using it for 2 minutes twice a day! #2min2x
