Tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease, which is why it’s so important, especially during this time of year, to teach children proper oral care habits.
To educate parents about children’s oral health, Oral-B Stages and Scrapblog.com have partnered to provide parents a unique and easy way to document key ‘Smile-Stages’ in their children’s oral health development. Smile-Stages are important milestones in children’s oral health development, such as their first smile or the loss of their first tooth. A Smile-Stage is also a specific time of year when children’s oral health is especially important, like Halloween.
Parents can capture their children’s best Smile-Stages moments by visiting www.oralb.com/smilestages and creating personalized multimedia scrapbooks that can be viewed and shared online.
Sarah is in Stage 2 and Sam is Stage 4. We received toothpaste and toothbrushes for the girls and I couldn’t be happier. My girls love the Oral-B Stages Disney Princess Toothpaste. To them it looks like the pink toothpaste has sparkles in it and they love it. For me, those “sparkles” are what makes the girls want to brush their teeth.
Stages 1: A toothbrush for babies 4 to 24 months.
At this stage, babies begin to teethe. When the first tooth comes in—usually between four and six months—it’s time to start brushing. The Oral-B Stages 1 toothbrush makes it easy to gently care for new teeth and tender gums.
Stages 2: A toothbrush designed for kids ages 2 to 4 years.
At this stage, kids are learning to brush, and their baby teeth are still growing in. Because their mouths are small and their hands unsteady, it’s important to choose a brush just for them. The Stages 2 brush suits their specific needs.
Stages 3: A toothbrush designed for kids ages 5 to 7 years.
At this stage, molars start to grow in while some baby teeth are lost. Kids can brush, but they’re still learning good technique. Sometimes they brush only one side of teeth, and they can’t always reach back teeth.
Stages 4: A toothbrush designed for kids ages 8 and up.
Kids 8 years old and up have first teeth, permanent teeth, and gaps. It’s important for them to brush thoroughly, but all this change can make for tender gums. With combination bristles, the Stages 4 toothbrush can help.
