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.

Some families limit candy to a certain number of pieces every day, others allow a "free-for-all" for a few of days after Halloween. Whatever you decide, make sure your kids are brushing for 2 minutes, twice every day! #ToothLove

Not all chewing gum is created equal. Look for sugar-free chewing gum and especially gum made with xylitol, a natural sweetener that’s actually been shown to reduce cavities! #ToothLove

Choosing floss for your child can be difficult, especially if they’re new to flossing. Dental tape is a great solution for young flossers. 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

In 1819 Levi Spear Parmly, a dentist from New Orleans, is credited with inventing the first form of dental floss. He instructed his patients to run a waxen silk thread between their teeth to "dislodge that irritating matter which no brush can remove and which is the real source of disease." He considered flossing the most important part of dental care. Good thinking Dr. Parmly! #DentalFAQ

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
