Did you know that poor oral health can lead to gum disease, which left untreated can lead to the loss of teeth and a wide array of other dental health issues. To get you started on the path towards a brighter, whiter smile, I have compiled these tips to get you started.

6 Tips to Get a Brighter Smile!

1.  Lead by Example

Your kids often look at you and your spouse as role models. The best way to get them interested in brushing their teeth is to make sure you lead by example and talk to them about the importance of taking care of their teeth and gums! Plus, if they see you brushing regularly, they will too!

2. Use a Timer

Use a timer or a song to ensure that your kids are brushing for as long as they’re supposed to. You can even make it a family activity by doing it all together.

3. Reward Them

Give your kiddos a bonus for brushing. A sticker chart that keeps track of their brushing habits is a great way to give them an incentive to brush.

Introduce a toothpaste and brush that features one of your kids’ favourite characters – such as the Orajel™ Spiderman™ and My Little Pony™ Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste and the Kids Spinbrush™ My Little Pony™ Battery Toothbrush. It keeps things exciting while practicing healthy habits!

4. Keep Up Your Brushing Game

Make sure you’re brushing and flossing at least twice a day to achieve optimal oral health. It is recommended to 

The Canadian Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush or toothbrush head every three months or sooner if it becomes worn, for an optimal clean.

5. Choose an Electric Toothbrush

Use a battery-powered toothbrush with sonic pulsating action. For example, the new Arm & Hammer™ Sonic Pulse Battery Toothbrush. It is clinically proven to remove 2X more plaque versus a manual toothbrush. This toothbrush has a slim, ergonomic handle and comes with a replaceable head and battery!

6. Pick a Toothpaste That Works for You

If you are like me and have a sweet tooth, be careful since foods that contain a lot of sugar can stain your teeth and soften tooth enamel. I recommend Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Clean & Fresh™ Toothpaste for enamel safe whitening and lasting freshness plus it prevents tartar build up!

This month make it your goal to wear a smile you’re proud of, following these tips can definitely get you a brighter smile in no time.
