Dental care has been a bit of a struggle for our family. My oldest son developed childhood caries when he was about three and as we waited months for him to get in to see the children’s dentist, the condition passed to his baby brother as well. After we saw the dentist some time later, both boys were put on a waiting list for dental surgery, but with estimated wait times of over a year, I was determined to do everything I could to stop the cavities from spreading too much in the meantime.
Fortunately, regular brushing and flossing kept the decay from going any further and last month, both boys had their surgery. Now that their teeth are finally strong and healthy, I’m determined to keep them that way, especially since Zackary has permanent teeth coming in now! Oral-B knows how challenging a child’s dental care can be at times and the company has some great tips this month to help ensure that your child’s teeth stay healthy!
