The most recent developments in toothpaste technology are in their whitening abilities. Whitening toothpastes can help with removing surface stains, but deeper stains will still need a deeper cleaning to remove. Children should generally avoid whitening toothpastes because they can cause sensitivity and may be too abrasive. Most toothpastes are fine for your teen (or the adults in your family) as long as it's approved by the ADA and they're using it for 2 minutes, twice a day! #2min2x

How did knights keep their teeth clean? In Medieval Times people often rinsed with a mixture of mint and vinegar to help with bad breath. Minty fresh! #DentalHistory

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

Is your child’s toothbrush as effective as it can be? If they are brushing with an old, or dirty toothbrush, then they just aren’t benefiting from brushing as much as they could be. To keep your child’s toothbrush running strong, rinse it thoroughly under cool tap water after brushing, washing the bristles clean of all debris. Replace their toothbrush every 3-4 months, so that your child brushes with functional bristles. #DentalFAQ

A great way to improve your tooth-health is by changing your drinking habits. Try eliminating sugary juices and colas and choose more mouth-healthy options. Drink more water, which helps clean teeth by washing away food debris and acid. Also, drink more milk to fight tooth decay by getting a healthy dose of casein – a protein in milk that strengthens enamel! #DentalFAQ
