five simple things you can do for your child to help keep their smiles healthy and bright

With school back in session, my thoughts were on keeping my kids teeth healthy. Twittermoms and Trident Sugar Free Gum are concerned about kid's teeth too! They are wanting to know what moms do to keep their kid's teeth healthy and strong.
Trident Sugar Free Gum was the first brand of it's kind to do studies which showed that those who chewed Trident experienced significantly fewer cavities.
Some interesting facts about Trident Gum:
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.
Our favorite flavors are bubblegum, spearment, cinnamon, and fruit-plus a whole lot more. We make sure that we grab a pack every time we are at the store. I really feel that Trident helps in keeping cavities at bay.
With my youngest having lots of caveties due to nursing, I’m very concerned about taking care of the rest of her teeth since we went through a lot of dental work. Especially when her pernament teeth come in. I try different methods to keep her interested in brushing. When Trident wanted to know 5 ideas from me, I rushed to type mine!
5 Simple things you can do for your child to keep their smiles healthy and bright:
1. Don't forget to brush their teeth - It can be easy to forget to brush. Getting in a good habit of brushing is a great start.
2. Three times a day - You can't only brush once a day. Morning, noon and night time should be how often they brush.
3. Brush long enough - Have child sing the ABC song or Happy Birthday song to time how long to brush.
4. Make it fun - Let them pick out their toothbrush and toothpaste flavor. They will be more apt to brush more.
5. Make it a family event - Brush the same time that they do to show them that everyone needs to brush their teeth.
Have fun with this and make your own post on what you do to help keep your kid's teeth healthy.
