Did you know that your tongue harbors bacteria and food particles beneath a fine layer of mucus? YUCK! This can lead to noticeable bad breath, but you can prevent it by brushing your tongue! Use a tongue scraper to remove debris from your tongue and curb bad breath.

Fruit is a big part of a healthy diet, and a lot of fruit promotes a healthy mouth. However, when fruit is dried, it loses water and usually contains added sugar, which provides food to cavity causing bacteria. That's why it's best to eat fruit raw. #ToothLove

Saliva is your mouth’s most powerful natural defense against tooth decay. It helps neutralize harmful acids that erode tooth enamel and lead to cavities. You can promote saliva production by chewing gum sweetened with Xylitol, staying hydrated with water, or eating more fibrous foods. #DentalFAQ

When your child eats a school-supplied lunch, you are putting their oral health in the hands of their school. You can help keep their teeth by packing their lunch with a few mouth healthy foods! Try packing their lunch, and include an apple and yogurt! Both of these foods clean teeth, and improve oral health. #ToothLove

If a baby tooth is lost too soon, it can lead to crowding of adult teeth, which can negatively affect bite alignment. The bottom line is that you should care for your child’s baby teeth as if they were adult teeth to help them get a healthy smile that lasts into adulthood. #DentalFAQ

You should buy a new toothbrush for your child every three months. When choosing the best toothbrush for your child, there are a few things to look for: 1. Make sure that the toothbrush is the right size for your child. The handle should fit in their hand, and the head should easily fit in their mouth. 2. Look for the ADA seal of approval. 3. Make sure that you buy a toothbrush with soft, rounded bristles. #ToothLove

You can use a small dab of toothpaste on your tongue, or, use a tongue scraper to remove debris from your tongue and curb bad breath. #DentalFAQ

Confused about how much toothpaste to use for your child? When the first tooth appears, use a smear of toothpaste, about the size of a grain of rice. When your child have a few more teeth, begin brushing their teeth with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. Happy brushing! #toothlove
