5 simple things you can do for your child to help keep their smiles healthy and bright

26 Aug

I love sweets. I know that too much is not good for you let alone, good for you teeth.

Here are 5 simple you can do for your child to help keep their smiles healthy and bright:

1. Educate them-  Teach them about dental hygiene and going to the dentist.

2 Be a Role Model-  Let them see how you take care of your teeth by brushing at least twice daily. Don’t forget to floss too! (once daily)

3. Limit sugar intake-  Don’t allow them to indulge in sugary foods or drinks.

4. Visit the Dentist- go for a regular cleaning with your child every 6 months, just to make sure they are staying cavity free.

5. Encourage them to eat healthy- so that they can have strong teeth that will last a lifetime 🙂

Here are some other tips that can help you and your kids journey to happy, healthy teeth:

  • Chewing Trident sugar free gum for 20 minutes after a meal can help fight cavities.
  • Xylitol, a sugar free sweetener in Trident, has been shown to loosen plaque.
  • Trident is available in 11 great flavors so kids have lots to choose from!

Trident gum has long been a pioneer in providing oral health benefits to consumers.  Trident was the first gum brand of its kind to undergo testing in 1967 with studies showing that people who chewed Trident experienced significantly fewer cavities.  Trident is available in 11 great-tasting flavors:  Original Flavor, Bubble Gum, Spearmint, Tropical Twist, Watermelon Twist, Wild Blueberry Twist, Minty Sweet Twist, Passionberry Twist, Wintergreen, Strawberry Twist and Cinnamon.  All flavors can be purchased in 18-piece packs and 54-piece multi-packs (three 18-piece packages).
