What better time to celebrate National Brush Day than the day after Halloween—after you’ve eaten all of your trick-or-treat sweets? Join us on November 1st to reinforce the importance of children’s oral health and good tooth-brushing habits.

According to the American Dental Association, tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease in the United States. Brushing your teeth is the cornerstone of any good oral hygiene routine for both kids and adults. It’s recommended to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush.

Check out these other ways you can celebrate National Brush Day and erase that candy-coated guilt:

    • Make sure you move the brush back and forth, gently, in short strokes for two minutes.
    • Help your kids brush their entire mouth - front, back, and top of teeth!
    • Don’t forget to brush your tongue to remove germs and freshen breath!
    • Replace toothbrushes every three to four months, sooner if the bristles are worn out or if you’ve been sick. - MABLE makes it easy to replace your bamboo toothbrush with our MABLE Club subscription plan.

Happy brushing!
