‘Twas The Night Before Christmas: Mouth Monsters’ Edition

It’s no secret that children love to receive toys for Christmas, but the best present you can give little ones this holiday season is the gift of a bright and healthy smile! Read our Christmas tale to learn how to best fend off the naughty Mouth Monsters and prevent tooth decay.


‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

A few monsters were stirring, trying to get into your mouth!


Ginger Bite-Us, and her friend, Tartar the Terrible.

Don’t forget Tooth D.K., he’s truly unbearable.


Hiding in candy canes, cookies and other holiday treats

They’ll get in your mouth if you eat too many sweets.


But it’s simple and easy to keep these monsters away

Just brush for two minutes, two times a day


And remember to floss in addition to brushing

Little ones can start when any two teeth are touching


And to help make children’s brushing habits great

Supervise brushing until kids are seven or eight!


Good oral hygiene habits are definitely worthwhile

Guaranteeing happy mouths for all, and for all a bright smile!
