Kids Corner Activities
The American Dental Association, along with the ADA Foundation, is pleased to provide you with the February 2017 National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM) campaign, encouraging children to ““Choose Tap Water for a Sparkling Smile”. Check out these fun activities that will help encourage your child to care for their teeth by brushing, flossing, and drinking plenty of tap water!
Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. It also reverses early decay.
Fluoride can generally be found in city tap water, which is why the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) encourages children to drink tap water. If you have any questions about whether or not your child is getting enough fluoride, talk to one of the pediatric dentists at Kids Town. 2017NCDHM-activities-calendar
