The Importance of Healthy Teeth With Trident & a One Year Supply of Gum Giveaway!

0 Shares

I grew up dutifully brushing my teeth every morning and evening.  This is the tried and true practice of most of us.  I attempt to instill the same routine in my children, though manning three little guys can be a handful.  Ultimately they have to brush themselves most of the time.  As a mother I worry about how well they are brushing.  As little boys they rush their brushing in order to have more time to play.

I was surprised to find that chewing sugar free gum is a great way to help prevent cavities.  Did you know this?  I must admit I wasn’t in the loop.  I would guiltily give my children sugar free fum to chew on various occasions. But it turns out I was actually helping their oral health.  Check out this NY Times article that delves into this important topic.

Of course, the key in this message is SUGAR FREE.  Any benefits are completely expelled with sugar filled gum.  This should be quite obviously, but I wanted to make a distinct notation.

According to a survey by Trident, tooth decay affects approximately half of all second graders and nearly 80 percent of 17-year-olds, but more than 84 percent of American parents don’t realize this.

 Trident’s survey also showed that more than nine in ten (92%) parents believe that cavities in children are preventable; yet getting a child to take care of their teeth can be difficult for 86 percent of parents.
Trident has created a list of tips and tricks to help you keep your little ones teeth as healthy as possible.
Brush
Remind children to brush their teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time, using a pea-size amount of fluoride toothpaste.
Eat
Foods such as fruits, vegetables and cheese help build strong healthy teeth and gums. Try chewing a sugar free gum, like Trident, after eating to help fight cavities.
Floss
Children should gently floss once a day to remove food that can get stuck between their teeth.
Avoid 
Try to avoid overindulging in sticky and sugary foods. When kids do have a special treat (especially on Halloween!), make sure they brush and floss afterwards.
Routine
Remember to get regular dental check-ups. The more you help kids incorporate healthy oral care habits in their everyday life, the more they will as adults.
Trident has kindly offered one lucky Mama Report reader a one year supply of gum to help keep their teeth healthy!  One whole year!  That’s five cases of gum!
