Almost half of children in the US suffer from tooth decay, the most common chronic disease for ages 6 to 19. Tooth decay and infection can cause pain, discoloration, and eventual tooth loss if left untreated, negatively impacting a child’s health and wellbeing. Cavities have also been linked to poor academic performance, as well as mental and physical health issues.

Colgate is on a mission to creeate a Zero Cavity Future through education and awareness. Colgate's new Hum toothbrush and line of great tasting toothpastes makes tooth brushing fun for kids.

The Bright Smiles, Bright Futures campaign also helps communities in need by providing education, resources, and free dental screenings.
