40% OF KIDS WILL develop at least one cavity by the time they turn eleven, which makes tooth decay the most common disease of childhood. That might seem scary, but parents can make a big difference, and that starts with understanding what causes cavities.

One major culprit is sugary drinks.🥤 That doesn’t just mean soda. We think of fruit juice as being healthier, but it’s just as bad! And the worst way to drink it is by sipping it throughout the day. It’s so harmful to the teeth that the results are called “bottle rot.” We aren’t here to insist that you never let your child touch a drop of soda or fruit juice again, but we do recommend cutting back and particularly limiting them to mealtimes.

Sugar in solid form is a problem too. Most of the snacks kids tend to love most are loaded with sugar. If they’re snacking on these sugary treats all day, then their saliva won’t get a chance to wash the sugar away and neutralize the pH of their mouths. 👅 That means their teeth are constantly bathed in acid, leading to enamel erosion and decay. We recommend trading sugary snacks for sliced fruits and veggies, especially if your child needs the energy boost from a snack in between meals. 👍 #cavities #ChildhoodDisease #LessSugar

WE TEND TO ASSUME that people from earlier eras (especially the pre-industrial ones) must have had terrible dental health, but that’s not always true. 🤨 While we get to benefit from modern dental care, braces, and root canal therapy here in the 21st century, the ancient Native Americans did a pretty good job of taking care of their teeth.

Perhaps the biggest thing they had working in their teeth’s favor was their diet. The early Native American diet consisted of corn (maize), beans, squash, fish, game, and plenty of fresh fruit and nuts. 🌽🐟🍎🥜 That kind of high-fiber diet is great for dental health because the harmful bacteria in our mouths need sugar and starch to multiply. High-fiber foods actually help to scrub our teeth clean as we eat them!

Tooth decay and gum disease might have been uncommon for the early Native Americans, but they weren’t nonexistent. If you ever go check out the Manitou Cliff Dwellings by Colorado Springs, you can see the holes left by advanced gum disease in the jaw bones of some of the replica skulls. Aside from diet, early Native Americans used used chewsticks and chewed fresh herbs to keep their teeth clean and healthy. 😁 Chewsticks are twigs with one frayed end to chew and clean the teeth and one pointy end to use as a toothpick, and herbs like mint, cucacua, and sage were great for fresh breath. #DentalHistory #FunFact #NativeAmericans

TEACHING A YOUNG child dental hygiene habits isn’t always easy. They have seemingly endless energy and very short attention spans, and a toothbrushing session won’t always go as planned. 🤪 Here are a few things we recommend:

1. Make brushing a priority. When we act like brushing our kids’ teeth is an inconvenient chore, that’s how they’ll view their dental hygiene routine. Show them that this is an important, unskippable part of every morning and evening.
2. Brushing doesn’t have to happen in the bathroom. On a difficult day, brushing their teeth right where they are could save both parent and child a lot of frustration.
3. Toothpaste isn’t as crucial as brushing. Whether the toothpaste ran out, went missing, or a young artist has been using it to practice their finger-painting skills, it’s fine to brush without the toothpaste now and then. The routine is more important.
4. Let them pick out their toothbrush. This will make them feel more in control, and they’ll be happier to use it.
5. Brush in front of the mirror. When they start brushing their own teeth, they’ll do it in front of the mirror, so this is the best place to brush their teeth for them at first. It will help them feel involved.
6. Make it fun! The more the grown-ups act like brushing is fun, the happier the kids will be to cooperate. 😄 Keep up a good attitude about it and help them enjoy it by playing fun music to time their two minutes of brushing. #BrushYourTeeth #BrushingTips #OralHealth

NOT MUCH WAS understood in Medieval England about cavities or gum disease, but they cared a LOT about keeping their breath fresh. 👅They didn’t know about germs, and they believed that bad smells were infectious on their own, including bad breath.

How did smell-based dental care work? Mostly by chewing spices. You can even find evidence of this practice in the Canterbury Tales. Chaucer’s characters keep their breath fresh by chewing cardamom and licorice. Women were sometimes recommended a mixture of aniseed, cumin, and fennel.

So which dental problems went unaddressed while all the focus was on breath? They didn’t have to worry about cavities too much because sugar wouldn’t enter their diets until the 1400s, but grinding flour between millstones tended to leave tiny bits of stone in their bread. You can imagine how much that could damage their teeth over time, and it was a big reason most adults would lose four to six teeth in their lifetimes. 😬

What if you got a toothache? Well, if you were rich, you could treat it with myrrh and o***m. If not, you might be instructed to burn a mutton fat and sea holly seed candle very close to your tooth. 🕯This was supposed to make the “worms” inside the tooth fall out into a basin of water. (We’re very glad to live in the 21st century, where we know worms don’t cause toothaches.) #DentalHistory #MedievalEngland #FreshBreath
