Five things we do for Bunny girl to keep her smile healthy and bright

Getting little ones to brush their teeth is not an easy task. Harder yet is ensuring they brush their teeth the right way and for a good long time! Twitter Moms and Trident have teamed up to spread the awareness that it's important kids keep their smiles healthy and bright.

Here are five things we do for Bunny girl to keep her smile healthy and bright:
  1. Hubby ensures he monitors the way she brushes her teeth especially in the night and if he feels she hasn't been able to give those pearly whites way at the back a good scrub, he helps her out with the brushing!
  2. We encourage her to sing 'Happy Birthday' in her head to ensure she brushes each area well
  3. When Bunny girl fell in love with the Disney Princesses we ensured we got her the Oral B Disney Princess toothpaste. That has always encouraged to skip to the bathroom, squeeze out the happy pink toothpaste onto her brush and brush away
  4. Whenever she has a sticky rich dessert like chocolate frosted chocolate cake, we ask her to brush her chocolate smothered teeth to prevent any residues are left behind for the 'teeth eating bugs' to feast on
  5. This never fails. Hubby and I have a few cavity filled teeth between us and whenever she decides she wants to have a tooth brushing holiday we show her the cavities and quick as a snap, she's off to brush her teeth after canceling that holiday! (Mean I know ...but it works!!)

Did you know that each year, more than 51 million school hours are lost as a result of problems related to tooth decay, the most common chronic childhood disease in America ? In fact, tooth decay affects approximately half of all second graders and nearly 80 percent of 17-year-olds. That’s why Trident® has partnered with Smiles Across America® to help underprivileged children get the dental care they need.

Here are some Trident 'Teeth' Tips:
  • Chewing Trident sugar free gum for 20 minutes after a meal can help fight cavities.
  • Xylitol, a sugar free sweetener in Trident, has been shown to loosen plaque.
  • Trident is available in 11 great flavors so kids have lots to choose from!
  • Brush: Remind children to brush their teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time, using no more than a pea-size amount of fluoride toothpaste.
  • Eat: Nutritious foods are an important part of keeping children’s smiles healthy and their teeth strong.
  • Floss: Have children gently floss once a day to remove food that can get stuck between their teeth and sticky plaque that forms on their teeth. Brushing alone cannot reach all of the surfaces on a tooth.
  • Avoid: Try to avoid overindulging in sticky and sugary foods. When kids do have a special treat, make sure they brush and floss afterwards.
  • Routine: Remember to get regular dental check-ups. Have them visit a dentist twice a year to make sure that they are taking good care of their teeth and gums.
