Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease. Tooth decay in children is five times more common than asthma, four times more common than early childhood obesity, and 20 times more common than diabetes (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, 2015). Many parents do not know that oral care should already start before the first tooth and are also not aware of the negative impact of decayed first teeth on the second teeth. Studies have shown that while the proportion of cavities-free older children is getting smaller, early childhood cavities is still a big problem. Babies often refuse to have their teeth brushed, especially if an oral care routine is not established at an early age.
The new MAM oral care character Brushy the Bear will come to life in toothbrushing stories that are available in several formats including on a special free MAM toothbrushing app “MAM Brushy Time”. The stories are designed to help raise awareness of the importance of early oral care using a playful approach. Brushy, a young bear that lives in a bear’s den with his mother already has some of his baby teeth and he loves to brush them. His favorite item is his toothbrush which he carries around all day (and of course it is the new MAM toothbrush!). Brushy is a role model for young children and shows that brushing your teeth is fun.
The MAM Baby’s Brush 2 pack and Learn to Brush Set is available now at Target stores. The complete MAM oral care collection will also be available on Amazon.
