You should buy a new toothbrush for your child every three months. When choosing the best toothbrush for your child, there are a few things to look for:
1. Make sure that the toothbrush is the right size for your child. The handle should fit in their hand, and the head should easily fit in their mouth.
2. Look for the ADA seal of approval.
3. Make sure that you buy a toothbrush with soft, rounded bristles.

When your child eats a school-supplied lunch, you are putting their oral health in the hands of their school. You can help keep their teeth by packing their lunch with a few mouth healthy foods! Try packing their lunch, and include an apple and yogurt! Both of these foods clean teeth, and improve oral health. #ToothLove

Confused about how much toothpaste to use for your young child? Well, we’re here to help! Until their first tooth erupts, wipe out their mouth with a cool, clean rag after eating. When they get their first tooth, use a smear of toothpaste, about the size of a grain of rice. When they have a few more teeth, begin brushing their teeth with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. Happy brushing! #ToothLove

Fluoridation is the controlled addition of fluoride to public drinking water. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral in virtually all water supplies, but usually too low to prevent tooth decay. Fluoridation has shown a dramatic decline in tooth decay since it’s initiation in the early 1960’s! #DentalFAQ

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

Thumb sucking can be a tricky problem for some children. While it is a natural comfort reflex, if carried on for too long it can cause dental problems. Here are some tips if your child is having trouble breaking the habit. #ToothLove
- Use positive reinforcement. A sticker on a chart for every day without sucking can go a long way!
- Occupy your child with activities that require them to use both hands.
- Engage them in the process by explaining why it is bad, what can happen, and your plan to help them stop.
