Do you have a good oral hygiene routine? I brush twice a day with a soft bristle toothbrush, floss at least every other day, rinse a few times a week, and visit my dentist twice a year. Healthy habits are a learned behavior and need to be taught to your children.
Thanks to Smiley360 and Crest I received the following items to review:
- 2 Full-size bottles of Crest Pro-Health Tartar Protection Rinse
- 1 Crest Toothbrush
- 1 Crest Tube of Toothpaste
Tips to Good Oral Hygiene:
- Most dentists recommend using a soft bristle toothbrush. My dentist told me to use an electric toothbrush because I am a rough brusher…can you relate? I tend to brush too hard when I use a regular toothbrush. Brushing harder doesn’t mean you are cleaning your teeth better! You are actually hurting your gums when you brush hard. I am currently using the Oral-B Pro-Health soft bristle toothbrush in the morning and my Oral-B Professional Deep Sweep Triaction 1000 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush at night. Now when I brush, I am very conscientious of how hard I am pushing on my teeth. I don’t need to push, I need to let the bristles do the work. You can help your kids learn good healthy habits by brushing your teeth with them in the morning and at night.
- Use a timer! You should be brushing for a minimum of two minutes! My kids received a turn-timer from their dentist on their last visit. It’s very helpful. For adults, if you use an electric toothbrush it has an automatic timer!
- Floss! Don’t just say you floss…do it! Really it doesn’t take a lot of time or effort to floss daily. I am not the best at flossing, but I am getting better. My goal is to floss daily, but in reality I do it every other day.
- How would you like to escape the scrape at your next dental visit? Crest Pro-Health Tartar Protection Rinse works hard to keep your teeth healthy, and your check-ups smooth. My husband is a rinse snob! He will ONLY use Crest Pro-Health! He feels that is works better, keeps his teeth clean and fresh, and doesn’t have that nasty alcohol aftertaste or burn. My husband uses the rinse faithfully after he brushes. I’m not as good about using the rinse. I only gargle a few times a week, but I do have to say my mouth feels fresher when I do use the rinse.
- Pick the the right toothpaste for your teeth! I have sensitive teeth due to receding gum lines (thanks to brushing too hard), so I always looks for a toothpaste for sensitive teeth. Crest Pro-Health is a fluoride toothpaste for anticavity, anti-gingivitis and sensitive teeth…with whitening!!!! I get the best of both worlds! I toothpaste for sensitive teeth and a white smile!
- Visit your dentist twice a year!
