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

As your child gets older they are inevitably introduced to sugary foods. Make sure that sugary treats are finished quickly and that they're properly brushing and flossing. To prevent feeding cavity causing bacteria, try to limit candy and only fill sippy cups with water. #ToothLove

Looking for after school snack ideas? Keep it simple! An apple with some natural peanut butter is a dental friendly snack that will fill them up until dinner time. We give it a thumbs up because its low in sugar, kids like it because it tastes great. Sprinkle some granola on top to add a salty crunch! Whatever you eat, be sure to brush #2min2x every day!

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
