Healthy Teeth, Healthy Me
Caring for young children’s teeth is an important part of keeping their bodies healthy — and it’s never too early to get started! These tips and tools were designed to help you and your child care for her teeth together.
Oral Health, According to Kids
Kids say the darnedest things! What did you think about oral health when you were five years old? Chances are you didn’t think about it at all, unless you had a painful cavity. See what these kids think about brushing their teeth, what keeps teeth strong, and going to the dentist!
Help your kids brush their teeth 2min2x (2 minutes each time, twice a day) for healthier teeth, good breath, fewer cavities, and to avoid painful dental problems. The Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives recommends that you help or watch over your kids’ brushing until they’re 8. Once your child’s teeth start to come into the mouth, brush using a children’s toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste in an amount no more than the size of a grain of rice.
