Crest & Oral B Giveaway

Getting your kids to brush their teeth is like the easiest thing in the world...said no mom ever.  I have to fight tooth and nail (no pun intended) to get Isabella to brush her teeth.  It's like a big shocker every morning and night that she needs to brush her teeth.  And heaven forbid I should mention the dentist, the poor girl is terrified even though the few times she's been she had a positive experience.



Crest and Oral B Pro-Health Stages are working together with America's ToothFairy (the National Children's Oral Health Foundation) to promote healthy teeth and lessen the fear of the dentist.  With a brand new design featuring Mike and Sulley from the upcoming prequel Monsters University, children don't need to fear monsters under the bed or the dentist!

Here are some tips to help keep your kid's teeth sparkly white with Crest Pro-Health Stages Monsters, Inc Toothpaste and Oral-B Stages Toothbrush

  • Make sure that children under 6 use only a pea size amount and instruct them in good brushing and rinsing habits to minimize swallowing. 
  • The toothbrush helps to protect tender gums, surrounds and cleans teeth, helps kids to reach their back teeth, fits little hands, and makes brushing fun with their favorite characters.
To minimize fear of the dentist you can try:
  • Visit the dentist with your child before their first appointment.  Ask the dental assistant for a tour and to give your child a quick preview of what to expect.  This can minimize fear and anxiety and prove to be a great learning opportunity.  
  • For older children you can bring them with you to the dentist to give them an opportunity to ask questions and see how the instruments will be used.  This gives them a chance to witness good oral health behaviors and it gives you a chance to get your teeth cleaned and maybe overcome your own fears.
  • Keep regular dentist visits to keep a sense of familiarity and comfort with the dental team and provide preventive care necessary for a healthy smile.
  • Reinforce concepts such as daily brushing and flossing by posting a calendar and rewarding your child a gold star or sticker for every day of excellent oral care.  Help get your child excited about their next dental visit by bringing the calendar with you to show the dentist.
  • Let them bring a favorite toy or blanket to give them security and comfort
Isabella was super jazzed up when we got our Monsters University toothpaste and toothbrush set.  It's blue and sparkly and it was just the change up we needed to take the battle out of brushing her teeth.  We've started using the gold star method described above and as a reward for all her gold stars we're going to take her to see the movie when it comes out.  Just an extra added incentive!

You can buy the Crest and Oral-B Pro Health Stages Monsters University toothbrush and toothpaste in stores, such as your local Walmart or you can enter to win one here.

I learned "In 2000, the Surgeon General called pediatric dental disease as a “silent epidemic”, and in 2003 issued a national call to action to promote oral health. Pediatric dental disease, more commonly known as severe tooth decay, can lead to malnourishment, anemia, required emergency surgery and life-threatening secondary infections."

Mostly people think that bleeding gums are due to hard brushing but it need to pay more attention rather than ignore. It is the very first sign of gum disease and should not be overlooked. Even the smallest amount of bleeding while brushing or flossing means that you’ve gum disease.
