Toothpaste and Your Kids
A pea-sized amount is recommended for children under six years of age, but read the fine print on the tube for recommendations. You should also keep it out of reach; kids are sometimes tempted to eat toothpaste.
Tips to Encourage Kids to Brush
New research by Aquafresh® suggests that teaching children good oral hygiene habits is stressful for parents. According to this study, more than one million children under the age of five have two or more fillings.
When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment from an early age.
What Our Patients Are Saying About Us
"My 4 year old son loves getting his teeth cleaned! He woke up asking when he was going to go get his teeth brushed because he remembered us talking about it the day before. His assistant Whitney was awesome and made the experience spectacular. The treasure tower on the way out was just icing on the cake!"
