Oral-B Love Your Gums - Challenge

I must say over the years and especially during pregnancy and after I had my boy's I have become quite teeth aware......I have always wanted my boys to have extra healthy teeth and gums so It's defiantly something as a mother I'm very conscious of.

We regularly use Oral B complete care as our family 
I was delighted to try the new Oral-B Pro-Expert...

"Oral-B PRO-EXPERT PREMIUM Gum Protection: a fluoride toothpaste that is clinically proven to help prevent & reduce gum problems in 4 weeks.  Oral-B Pro-Expert Premium Gum Protection toothpaste protects against all these areas dentists check most: cavities, gum, plaque, sensitivity, enamel, tartar, whitening, and fresh breath."

Helps prevent causes of gum problems

Reduces plaque

I pleasantly surprised my teeth felt clean and the toothpaste has a very subtle minty taste and left my mouth feeling very fresh...This is now part of my dental care routine along with regular flossing.

Here are my top tips and dental advice that was given to me by my dentist:

Use an electric toothbrush if possible as it cleans more effectively, especially those hard to reach areas, after this advice, I purchased my first ever Oral B electronic toothbrush for myself and my boy's....I really felt the difference and will never go back to a manual toothbrush.

Floss regularly

After cleaning teeth don't rinse toothpaste out of your mouth, as you are washing away the protective fluoride which is left on the teeth.

Minimise sugar intake...even if it means dropping a spoon of sugar in tea/coffee.

Visit a dentist regularly.
