With Easter around the corner, your little ones are bound to indulge in some sweets, but that shouldn’t mean that their teeth have to suffer this time of year. Dr. Plotka’s toothbrushes are great basket fillers that remind kiddos that good dental habits still apply despite the chocolates, jelly beans and marshmallow candies they can’t wait to put in their mouths!
Recommended for ages 3-12, teens with braces or anyone who enjoys a smaller brush, Dr. Plotka’s Youth Manual Toothbrush is an extraordinary oral health tool.
I personally use these toothbrushes after I found them by accident at Whole Foods, and I won’t use any other toothbrush! 😍 I love the bristles! I had no idea, however, that the bristles were infused with silver for an antimicrobial bonus.
The Best Toothbrush has Anti-microbial Bristles
- Naturally Antimicrobial* Bristles – Embedded silver naturally eliminates 99.9% of bacteria that grow on the bristles between brushing sessions.
- Flossing Bristles™ – Dual-layered bristle structure provides superior cleaning: the longer, thinner bristles – thin as a human hair – reach deep into grooves, under the gumline and between teeth to brush away food and plaque other brushes miss while the thicker bristles ensure complete cleaning of gum and teeth.
- Soft Long-Lasting Polyester Bristles – Get up to one extra month of use thanks to polyester bristles which bend better than the nylon bristles found in most other brushes on the market! (The ADA recommends changing your toothbrush every 3 months. Doctor Plotka’s brush will last about 4!)
- Dentist Developed – Dr. Ronald Plotka designed this innovative toothbrush as part of his thriving 40+ year Boston-based dental practice.
Sugar Causes Acid
What kids and parents may not know is that eating sugar causes an immediate acid surge which impacts the PH environment in your mouth. This effect plays a major part in the development of cavities, tooth decay, and inflammation. To help rinse away this acid, make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day, have your sweets around the same time as your full meal (added saliva helps to rinse away acid) and brush more often if your sugar intake is high.
Tips For Kids to Eat Less Sugar During Holidays
So what are some tips to conquer the sugar during this holiday? Make brushing fun! Create games, songs or rewards for great habits. Establish a daily routine and make sure to stick to all dental appointments. Lastly, find the right toothbrush! Using a toothbrush that makes your mouth feel clean and healthy is imperative to adopting good habits.
