National Children’s Dental Health Month

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, a period designed to bring awareness to the importance of keeping our kids’ teeth in tip-top shape in order to set them up for a healthy smile throughout the rest of their lives. Delta Dental partnered with many organizations to bring National Children’s Dental Health Month to you.

Throughout the month of February (through April), Captain Supertooth will be visiting pre-k through first graders throughout New Jersey, talking to them about healthy foods, visiting their dentist, and brushing and flossing regularly with the help of his friend, Mr. Chompers. Learn more from Captain Supertooth on our YouTube Channel.

On Feb. 23, Delta Dental will be hosting an oral health fair at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City with Rutgers School of Dental Medicine and Hudson County Dental Society. This year’s oral health fair is themed, “Building Healthy Smiles,” and includes interactive games and stations designed to engage youngsters (and their families) in learning about the importance of a healthy smile. There will be give-a-ways and lots of toothbrushes! This event is free with admission to the Center from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.!

Delta Dental also partnered with three different New Jersey Girl Scout troops to kick off a pilot program, led by Delta Dental associates, to earn their first Delta Dental Girl Smile Power patch.

As you can see, there’s a lot going on in support of National Children’s Dental Health Month. What do you have planned?

When it comes to chewing gum, it’s the type of gum you chew that makes a difference in whether it’s helpful or harmful to your teeth. While chewing gum containing sugar may actually increase your chances of developing a cavity, there is clinical evidence that demonstrates just the opposite for sugar-free gum. And there’s even better news when it comes to chewing sugar-free gum that is sweetened with xylitol.

Sugar-free gum helps to clean teeth

Studies have shown that chewing sugar-free gum after meals and snacks can help rinse off and neutralize the acids released by the bacteria in plaque, which are harmful to tooth enamel. Both the act of chewing and the flavor of the artificial sweeteners in the gum stimulate ten times the normal rate of saliva flow. Not only does the increased saliva flow neutralize the acids in your mouth, it also washes away food particles, helping to keep your teeth clean.
