Ever wonder where the toothbrush came from? It is believed that people in China were making them as early as the 15th century. Made from the hair on the back of pigs’ necks and attached to handles made of bone or bamboo! What could they have been using for toothpaste? #DentalFAQ

Electric toothbrushes can be great for children just beginning to brush on their own. They have built-in timers, which helps ensure that they brush for at least two minutes. Additionally, many kids enjoy them more than manual toothbrushes. #DentalFAQ

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that parents choose a dental home for their child before their first birthday. By doing so, you can get your child’s oral health evaluated at the earliest possible stage, and make informed, mouth-healthy decisions as they welcome more baby teeth. #ToothLove

Here’s a couple of do’s and don’ts to maintain a healthy smile: Do: brush your teeth twice per day for at least 2 minutes at a time. Don’t: drink a lot of sugary drinks like colas and fruit juice. Do: floss your teeth daily, to remove debris from between teeth. Don’t: eat a lot of sticky or hard candy, which can damage enamel. #DentalFAQ

Your child needs a new toothbrush every three months. When choosing the best toothbrush for your child, make sure the handle fits in their hand and the head should easily fit in their mouth. Make sure that you buy a toothbrush with soft, rounded bristles, and always check for the ADA seal of approval. #ToothLove

Did you know that the mouthguard was invented in 1890? Woolf Krause, a London dentist, developed what he called a “gum shield” made of cotton, tape, sponge and small pieces of wood to protect boxers from lip lacerations and mouth injuries.
