Have Your Candy & A Healthy Mouth Too
CUT: (Salzer) Children should brush as soon as possible after eating candy and snacks. Choose oral care products designed for their stage of development. The Oral-B Stages line has products for kids four months to seven years of age that feature Disney characters and kid-friendly flavors to keep oral care fun! For tweens 8 to 12, try the Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health FOR ME line.
SCRIPT: Dr. Salzer says tooth decay is still recognized as one of the most common chronic infectious diseases affecting America's youth, and effective oral hygiene needs to be learned early on.
CUT: (Salzer) Kids often learn by example so try brushing your teeth with your children. Encourage your kids to brush in front of a mirror for a full two minutes to ensure they brush the surface of every tooth.
