Mouth Monsters

Beware the Mouth Monsters! With the help of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, you can join the Monster-Free Mouths Movement and keep your child’s mouth free of creatures like Ginger Bite-Us, Tartar the Terrible and Tooth D.K. Tooth decay is the number one chronic infectious disease among children in the U.S., so learn more about this terrifying trio and find out how to banish your child’s mouth monsters for good.
Ginger Bite-Us. She may be cute, but she has quite the bad temper. She’ll kick, bite and scratch until your gums are red and inflamed. Watch out for this horrible little hothead!
Tartar the Terrible. This monster packs a mean punch. That’s because he’s working on hardening tooth buildup, which becomes far more difficult to remove than plaque.
Tooth DK. He’s the most fearsome of them all, causing cavities and toothaches everywhere he goes. He’s hatching an evil plan for mouth domination, one tooth at a time.
