National Brush Day is a holiday that teaches us to take better care of our teeth. The most common disease – caries – is manifested as a result of excessive consumption of sweets. Not surprisingly, this holiday is celebrated on November 1, after Halloween, when children eat kilograms of candy and you need to remember about the health and hygiene of your teeth. Show your kids how to properly use a toothbrush.
If you think that brushing your teeth is boring or your kids refuse to brush their teeth, offer them unusual toothbrushes. For example, there are those who sing for two minutes – that’s how much you need to brush your teeth. Older children can be offered electric brushes that clean better and more efficiently. And the first tooth brush appeared in 3000 BC, these were sticks and leaves that were chewed to remove dirt and food debris. In 1840, the College of Dental Surgery began operating in Baltimore and operates today.
If you think toothpaste tastes limited to mint or herbs, try something different.
- Bacon – Mr. Bacon invented pasta with such a taste for those who love bacon for breakfast, but do not have time to cook it.
- Chocolate is a great choice for those with a sweet tooth, the main thing is that such a paste is safe for teeth, unlike sweets loved by many.
- Wasabi is very unusual and very spicy, just try it.
How to celebrate
