Thank you mommy Christine Dychiao for nominating me to use the right kind of toothbrush so we can Smile Pilipinas. To give you a brief background, the Smile Pilipinas movement aims to help improve our country's state of oral health and one way to do it is to improve our individual oral health by using the right kind of toothbrush- Oral B Pro-Health Cross Action. This unique toothbrush provides superior cleaning with its perfect 16-degree angle brush to remove up to 99% of plaque in hard to reach areas and help prevent oral health problems.
Honestly speaking, I have my own share of oral health insecurities. My last visit to the dentist was rather depressing. She knew that I have been excessively drinking coffee and tea. This is evident because of the discoloration of my teeth that eventually resulted in plaque build up- thicker, yellowish layer around my teeth. And as we all know, plaque is one of the root causes of oral health concerns.
Plaque is filled with bacteria. The complications of plaque arise when it is not removed. It will lead to gingivitis and gum disease and eventually, the loss of a tooth.
After weeks of using the toothbrush, my teeth never felt this squeaky clean because Oral B Pro-Health Cross Action toothbrush helped remove plaque better than any ordinary toothbrush. Aside from providing superior cleaning and removing 99% plaque, it also improved my gum health in four weeks by reducing gingivitis.
Other benefits of using Oral B Pro-Health Cross Action toothbrush:
- Provides up to 55% better cleaning along the gum line vs regular brush
- Removes surface stains and polishes teeth
- Removes odor-causing germs from the tongue
- Stimulates gums
- Works gently on enamel and gums
I want my own child to experience the same "real clean" feel so I let her use the same brand of toothbrush I am using. I am very particular with my daughter's oral health that's why I also support Smile Pilipinas' Unang Ngipin Patibayin program. This advocacy was launched in partnership with the local city government of Pateros and Pasig. It provides oral health education and preventive measure for parents and children.
As parents, we need to educate our kids that plaque build-up leads to many oral health insecurities. If we don't, cavities, plaque and unhealthy gums will not only make eating meals difficult, but these will also not allow you to see a reflection of a happy child looking back at you when you take their photos.
I am nominating Mica and Elizabeth to share their own oral insecurities as well as benefits from using Oral B Pro-Health Cross Action toothbrush. I also hope that you can impart your own product experiences and realizations on plaque as one of the root causes of poor oral health.
