Leave the (bad) snacks behind.
We know this one may be tough considering your children would prefer an ice cream cone over a bowl of strawberries any day of the week! Try substituting candy, cookies, chips and soda for snacks such as strawberries, apples, cheese, yogurt, and water. Their teeth will certainly reap the benefits.
Spring is the perfect time to replace all the toothbrushes in your home. Keep in mind that throughout the year toothbrushes should be replaced every two to three months and immediately after being sick to prevent reinfection.
Brush and floss daily.
This may seem a bit obvious, however, it’s extremely important that your children are brushing for two minutes, two times a day as well as flossing daily.
