Why we do it

Tooth decay is the world's most widespread disease: at least 3 out of 5 children suffer from dental cavities, and toothache is the main reason for children to miss school.

The easiest way to defeat tooth decay is by brushing twice a day. It has been demonstrated that brushing day and night with a fluoride toothpaste can reduce tooth decay by up to 50%.

Educating children about this at an early age helps to build good toothbrushing habits for life.
