Losing a tooth for the first time is a milestone to remember- especially for the child. Their cute little baby teeth fall out and their “big kid” ones come in, which in turn turns them into “big kids.”
We know that being consistent creates and strengthens good habits.
As parents we do the best we can to be consistent with brushing and flossing, and we could use a boost now and then. When our child suddenly decides to exercise their independence in the form of not brushing or flossing, or when we forget to pack the [right] toothbrush or toothpaste for our weekend camping trip.
