According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AADP), nearly 60 percent of 5-year-olds have had at least one cavity. Early childhood caries (ECC) is a rapid form of tooth decay seen in toddlers when bacteria within the mouth begins to corrode the primary teeth.
When left untreated, ECC can cause permanent damage to your child’s oral and overall health. But with consistent and proper dental hygiene practices, this painful disease can be prevented.
Brush + Floss
Brush your child’s teeth twice a day with a soft toothbrush and a gentle formula, like our Kid’s Toothpaste. It’s both fluoride-free and SLS-free, and made with organic ingredients like coconut oil that help remove plaque and support tooth enamel.
Follow up with the Dr. Brite Kid’s Mouthwash, a mild yet powerful solution created with activated charcoal to protect against cavities and harmful bacteria. The bottle’s spray nozzle allows for a quick and convenient application of this naturally flavored rinse.
It's highly recommended that your child sees the dentist for the first time before their first birthday, and then every six months for a professional cleaning. Make sure to communicate with your little one about what to expect before each appointment.
