5 Oral Health Tips to keep your smile white & bright
- Brushing Your Teeth: Children and adults alike should brush their teeth 2 times a day for at least 2 minutes. Children over the age of two should use fluoride tooth paste.
- Dental Visits: Visit the dentist regularly. Children should visit the dentist start at one year old.
- Flossing: Floss at least once a day.
- Fluoride: Fluoride fights cavities and can be found in some food and water. Fluoride is added to tooth paste to help prevent cavities.
- Chew Sugar Free Gum: Chewing sugar free gum, like Trident can prevent cavities while keeping teeth clean and breath fresh in between brushing. Chewing sugar free Trident helps produce saliva which reduces plaque acids, removing food that may be stuck between the teeth and also strengthening teeth.
For an even happier smile, try a variety of delicious Trident flavors including: Original, Spearmint, Tropical Twist and Bubble Gum.
