Flossing young teeth can be hard, especially if your child has new permanent teeth with wide gaps. Dental tape is a great solution to floss teeth with larger gaps. Dental tape is wide and flat and designed to be gentle on exposed gums. The width of dental tape makes it easier for small hands to grasp it, and makes it more forgiving when children use too much pressure while flossing. #toothlove

As Halloween unfolds, your children are sure to come away with a good haul of candy. But if they have braces, then they need to be extra diligent to keep their braces clean and their teeth cavity-free. Have them follow these steps to keep their braces clean this Halloween:
-Brush at least 3 times per day to remove food debris.
-Floss daily with a floss threader.
-Use an interproximal brush if you have space between the teeth.
-Rinse with an anti-cavity fluoride rinse.

Did you know that Halloween originated from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and dress up in costumes to ward off wandering spirits and ghosts? Halloween was given the name “Hallows’ Eve” in the eighth century, since the evening preceded All Saints’ Day. Hallows’ Eve later evolved in Halloween! #JustForFun #DentalHistory

You should 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.

Sometimes, your braces’ wires can poke the inside of your lips and cheeks, causing minor irritation and light bleeding. If your braces are poking the inside of your mouth, then use a small amount of orthodontic wax on the trouble spot to smooth over the problem and help keep your cheeks scratch-free! #DentalFAQ
