Taking care of your teeth and gums is important and as parents we tend to try to set a good example for our kids by having a good oral routine ourselves. Proper brushing and care between dental appointments is made easy with great products from Oral-B and Crest.



April is National Oral Health month, the perfect time to rejuvinate your oral care routine and learn a bit more about how oral health can affect your overall wellness.

Did you know approximately only 3 in 10 Canadians admit to flossing more than once a day and about 1 in 2 people have gingavitus. Dentists recommend brushing twice daily for a minimum two minutes, flossing once daily and using a rinse. In fact, Oral-B Pro Health Clinical Protection floss is proven to help reverse gingavitus in two weeks as part of a comprehensive dental routine. 


National television host and Practicing ER Physician, Dr. Travis Stork has partnered with Crest and Oral-B to highlight the connection between Canada's oral care habits and overall body health. 

Did you know pregnancy and gum related issues often go hand in hand? 70 per cent of all pregnant women suffer from inflamed gums, which is a sign of gingivitis. Adopting a proper oral health care routine can help. For more tips and advice from Dr. Travis Stork please check out the videos and more available on the Crest and Oral-B Facebook Page!
