In my family, proper dental hygiene is a must. I want my children to understand why good dental hygiene and health are important, because I don’t think I really understood as a child. I brushed my teeth because I wanted fresh breath, but unless I had something stuck in my teeth or had a dentist appointment the next week, I never flossed.
Since we want our kids to really understand why it’s important, we set good examples and have set routines with our dental care. We all brush our teeth at least twice a day, floss regularly, and make sure we visit the dentist regularly.
Although I work from home, there are a lot of times that I’m out with the kids on field trips or at their schools at lunch or snack time. It’s not always convenient for me to brush my teeth right away, so I like to carry a pack of Trident in my handbag.
Trident is great for not only freshening my breath when I can’t brush, but also for helping to clean and protect my teeth. Chewing Trident sugar-free gum for 20 minutes after eating or drinking helps remove food and deposits left behind. And whether I’m in the mood for a delicious fruit flavor like Tropical Twist or a refreshing mint flavor like Spearmint, Trident is always a favorite choice.
During the week of September 15th, Trident will be donating up to $200,000 to Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America. With every pack of Trident gum purchased, a donation will be made to help millions of underserved kids have a healthier smile.
Trident has also partnered with Olympic gold medalist and National Women’s Soccer League star Alex Morgan this year. They’re raising awareness together about the importance of keeping teeth healthy and happy.
Alex’s personal oral care tips are:
~ Brush your teeth twice every day, for at least 2 minutes.
~ Floss every day to remove food that brushing doesn’t reach.
~ Visit the dentist regularly to maintain oral health.
~ Chew Trident sugar-free gum for fresh breath and to cleanse mouth when you’re unable to brush.
~ Smile! Confidence is everything so flash your pretty smile.
