Improve Your Oral Care With Products from Colgate Total
Its National Women’s Health Week, something you may or may not be aware of. As women there are so many health issues that affect just us. It’s important that we take care of ourselves. Whether it’s remembering to schedule your regular pap exam, getting a Mammogram when the time is right or just checking in with the doctor for an annual exam. It’s all important. One small way we can keep our health on track is by taking care of our oral health. Making sure we establish good oral hygiene is a small step in the right direction. You can improve your oral care with products from Colgate Total. I received a sample of products for review. Any opinions expressed are my own.
I have to admit that even I don’t floss as often as I should. Growing up in an impoverished country where dental care was scarce although it was free. Our town in La-Brea, Trinidad had one public health clinic and the dentist was only in office two days a week. Appointments were difficult to get and it would take forget to get seen. That difficult start meant that I had a few issues with oral health as a child and teen. It even followed me in adulthood. Thankfully now I have a better smile and I am doing all that I can to keep it beautiful.
Did you know that an oral infection from tooth decay and bad oral hygiene, if left untreated can lead to death?
The first step to good oral care is getting a toothbrush that will work great at getting your teeth clean. I love the Colgate 360® Total® Advanced Floss-Tip Bristles Toothbrush. It gets deep between your teeth helping you remove all the build up. It’s important to brush twice a day, minimum. Going to sleep with all the food particles in your mouth from the day could lead to cavities and that’s why you need to make sure you’re brushing at least in the morning and at night. This toothbrush has some great features including:
The Colgate 360® Total® Advanced Floss-Tip Bristles Toothbrush is designed with a compact head and tapered bristles that provide 4x deeper reach . The purple-ended tapered bristles gently reach deep between teeth and along the gum line, while the cheek and tongue cleaner removes odor-causing bacteria. You can choose between soft and medium bristle firmness and it comes in a variety of colors including blue, orange, lime green and purple. They are available for purchase from drug and grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide. The MSRP is $4.49.
Another key component to good oral health care is having a good toothpaste. Often people use too much toothpaste when brushing their teeth. You only need a drop of toothpaste to clean your teeth and the advanced whitening toothpaste from Colgate Total is a great option. I love it because it helps with cavities, plaque and gingivitis just to name a few. It leaves your mouth feeling fresh and clean and it protects for hours after brushing. Continuous use helps improve your oral health over time. Key features of Colgate Total® Advanced Whitening Toothpaste include:
Colgate Total® Advanced Whitening Toothpaste combines the proven 12 hour germ-fighting formula of Colgate Total® with an advanced whitening system that helps remove surface stains for whiter teeth and a healthier mouth. Colgate Total® Toothpaste helps improve mouth health by effectively fighting dental plaque bacteria, strengthening teeth, and helping reverse gingivitis.
- In 12 hours – reduces 83% more germs
- In 24 hours – starts to fortify enamel
- In 4 weeks – helps improve gum health
You can purchase the toothpaste at mass retailers, drug and grocery stores for a MSRP of $3.79.
Colgate Total®’s New Gum Health Mouthwash is another component to oral care in our house. My husband and kids use mouthwash all the time. I use it less than they do but we all like to use to it when we are done brushing. It’s a great finishing step to an oral care routine. Colgate has been a company my family has trusted for years with our oral care and we will continue with the Colgate Total line of products. I love the minty fresh feeling I get when I use the mouthwash. Key features of the mouthwash includes:
Colgate Total®’s New Gum Health Mouthwash features an advanced germ-fighting formula that forms a protective shield along the gum line and protects against bacteria. With twice-daily use, it’s clinically proven to deliver 45% stronger, healthier gums.
