I am that mom that is always preaching to her children how important it is to brush their teeth. Oh yes, I even took it to the next level by showing them a photo of rotten teeth. What they don’t know is that mommy sometimes does not practice what she preaches.
Alright, it’s confession time.
One of the things I’ve been slacking on as of late is definitely brushing my teeth before bed. There you go, I said it. After working, cleaning, and running errands I fall on my face most nights. I can’t remember how many times I’ve sent the kids into the bathroom to brush their teeth only to not follow my own rule.
Since we are being honest here, there are a few other things I could definitely improve on when it comes to my dental hygiene. I could floss more, and use a mouthwash regularly. I do change my toothbrush every few months. I am sure I am not alone in this boat. As an influencer, part of my job is to attend a lot of events and meetings. The last thing I want is for someone to notice my teeth for the wrong reasons.
I made a promise to myself to take better care of my smile. My plans to get back on track are very simple. I’ve created a little reminder on my phone to keep up with my flossing and night brushing. I was also really excited to start using the new Colgate Total *Advanced Health* Daily Repair toothpaste.
Most of the time, we do not know what’s really happening inside our mouths unless we start having some kind of pain or go see the dentist. The Colgate Total * Advanced Health* Daily Repair toothpaste contains a multi-active formula that helps repair early teeth and gum damage before you even know it exists. By using it twice a day it works to help remineralize weakened enamel to strengthen teeth, help prevent cavities, reduce sensitivity with continued use and help improve gum health. In short, arm yourself with this toothpaste before you go showing your favourite sweets what your teeth are made of!
Visiting your dentist regularly is always recommended. However by making small changes to your daily routine like adding Colgate Total * Advanced Health* Daily Repair regimen you can help improve your overall oral health.
