Cosmo Insurance Agency wants to wish you a Happy National Tooth Fairy Day to you and your children! Are you asking yourself how this day came to be? Well the tooth fairy was a role model to children since the mid-1920s where advertisements would use images of a tooth fairy to encourage children to take care of their dental hygiene The tooth fairy grew from an image to a living figure when Esther Watkins Arnold wrote a seven-page playlet in 1927 called “The Tooth Fairy”.

1. Brush Properly
When brushing your teeth, position the bristles at an angle of 45 degrees near the gum line. Both the gum line and the tooth surface should be in contact with the bristles. Brush the outer surfaces of the teeth using a back-and-forth, up-and-down motion, making sure to be done gently in order to avoid bleeding. To clean the inside surfaces of the teeth and gums, place the bristles at a 45-degree angle again and repeat the back-and-forth, up-and-down motion. Lastly, brush the surfaces of your tongue and the roof of your mouth to remove bacteria, which might cause bad breath.
We know, it’s a chore and a lot of times forgetful after brushing if rushing out the door or heading to bed. However, flossing can help you remove food particles and other detrimental substances that brushing regularly cannot.
3. Visit Your Dentist
You should visit your dentist at least twice a year to have a full hygiene treatment performed
