National Brush Day
Regular brushing and flossing helps keepteeth and gums healthy keeping dental decay at bay. In fact, brushing your teeth for just a few minutes a day can help prevent painful and expensive dental issues down the road. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), "tooth decay is the most chronic childhood disease - more than 16 million children suffer from untreated tooth decay."
In honor of National Brushing Day, why not make brushing teeth a fun experience? Encourage your children to watch one or two of the fun videos for 2 minutes, twice a day. Brushing two minutes, two times a day helps protect against tooth decay! Don't forget flossing and regular visits to the dentist, too!
