This last weekend was filled with family, fun, and good oral care products and information from Colgate Total. Growing up it seemed like our family was always at the dentist. My parents made sure our teeth were cleaned and taken care of on a regular basis.
Fast forward to today, Colgate Total has taught me that a healthy mouth helps keep a healthy body. Brushing your teeth is important in combating Gingivitis, an early phase of gum disease. Gingivitis in an inflammation of the gums caused by the accumulation of plaque and bacteria above the gumline. If left untreated gingivitis can progress to other more serious infections. Recent studies have demonstrated there is an association between periodontitis and certain systemic diseases, such as stroke diabetes, and heart disease.
Colgate Total® is both FDA-approved and accepted by the ADA to help prevent gingivitis. It contains an ingredient that fights both gum inflammation and bacteria. A unique, innovative technology ensures that this ingredient fights germs for a full 12 hours. Fighting oral bacteria and gum inflammation associated with gingivitis by brushing with Colgate Total® is a simple step that people can incorporate into their daily routines to help keep their mouths healthy, and this may have a positive effect on their overall health. Follow up with NEW Colgate Total, Advanced Pro-Shield Mouth Wash for 12 hours added protection against germs.
Colgate provided me with a gift card to host my party and an variety of Colgate Total products for both adults and kids.
For our party we had chili and cornbread and a nice bonfire outside, but before heading outdoors I sat everyone down and shared with them the importance of good Oral Hygeine. I introduced the adults to NEW Colgate Total, Advanced Pro-Shield Mouth Wash, which offers 12 hours of protection against germs. Colgate Pro-Shield Toothpaste and Colgate Slim Soft Toothbrushes to keep our teeth sparking clean.
The kids were thrilled to receive new Battery Powered Toothbrushes, with great characters such as Dora, Sponge Bob, and Transformers, and to make brushing extra special for them too, Kids Colgate Toothpaste, that tastes good and encourages them to brush longer.
We had a lot of fun and I hope this encourages the kids to develop good dental habits for their future adult teeth. I hope that the adults learned how important good oral health is to their whole body, and that Colgate has all the tools to help you keep your mouth fresh and clean.
