Oral-B Pro-Health FOR ME Floss Picks

  • Easy to use and less messy for more complete clean vs. brushing alone
  • Minty Breeze flavor and tween-inspired color

Use a fluoride rinse for 30-seconds to kill bad breath germs and protect against plaque and gingivitis.
Healthy eating habits can help lead to healthy teeth.
  • Try to limit your child’s intake of sugary snacks.
  • If your child must snack, choose nutritious foods such as vegetables, low-fat yogurt and low-fat cheese.

It is important to show kids with braces the correct way to brush.

  • Using a two-step system–brushing from the top down and then the bottom up–will help dislodge any breakfast stuck in the brackets.
Tweens should protect their teeth and mouths during sports and recreational activities such as skate-boarding and roller blading. Mouth guards can help provide protection.
Tobacco stains teeth and significantly increases the risk of gum disease and oral cancer.
When bacteria in the mouth breaks down, it produces acids that can erode tooth enamel and lead to decay.
Most experts recommend a dental check-up every 6-months–more often if you have problems like gum disease.
The American Dental Association established February National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM).
After a professional dental cleaning, it only takes a few hours for plaque to re-form on your teeth, so make sure you brush, floss and rinse every day between visits.
