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

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

Dr. Woolf Krause, a dentist from Britain, began to fashion mouthguards for boxers back in 1892. When first introduced, the boxers objected, claiming that they were an unfair advantage. But by the late 1920's they were commonplace and still live on today! Protect your athlete's teeth like Dr. Krause did! #DentalHistory #ToothLove
