February Is Children’s Dental Health Month

The American Dental Association established Children’s Dental Health Month as a way to promote better oral health to kids, caregivers, and teachers. ProBiora Kids probiotics for the mouth are a great way for parents to keep kids’ smiles bright and healthy.

“Children’s Dental Health Month is a perfect time to establish and strengthen your child’s oral hygiene habits by adding an oral-care probiotic to their daily routine,” says Dr. Sarah Poteet, DDS. She’s a dentist, owner of Dallas Functional Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. “Sugar feeds the bad mouth bacteria that causes tooth decay, cavities, painfully swollen gums and bad breath. ProBiora oral-care probiotics contain a patented blend of good mouth bacteria that helps to crowd out that harmful bacteria and achieve a healthy balance naturally.”

Maintaining mouth health can be especially difficult for kids who have braces or other orthodontic equipment, explains pediatric orthodontist Dr. Ashley Kisling. ProBiora Kids is completely safe to use with orthodontics, she notes, making it a great choice! Watch her TikTok video to learn more.

Why ProBiora Kids oral-care probiotics?

Dr. Poteet, who is also a parent herself, explains the challenges of helping kids maintain optimum mouth health. Americans consume about 58 million pounds of chocolate around Valentine’s Day alone, and sugar-filled drinks and snacks are everywhere we look.

Kids’ teeth often pay a price for all that sugary sweetness. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than half of children have experienced a cavity by age 8 – including more than 20% of kids between the ages of 2 and 5. Dental health problems result in 2 million missed school days per year for school-age children, the Healthy Schools Campaign reports.

A sweet solution

But don’t ditch the chocolate and candy just yet. Adding ProBiora Kids oral-care probiotics to kids’ daily dental hygiene routines is the key to a truly healthy mouth. Probiotics for the mouth work the same as those that promote and repopulate good bacteria in the gut. Kids can enjoy a healthier mouth, fresher breath and whiter teeth in 30 days or less with daily use. Now that’s sweet!

“As a parent, I get peace of mind knowing ProBiora Kids oral-care probiotics are helping my child’s mouth stay healthy,” says Dr. Poteet.
