Here’s a disgusting confession: I once went years without visiting the dentist. My plaque and tartar build-up got so bad that it filled in the gap between my lower front teeth! It was such a relief when the dentist pulled it out, kind of like finally getting rid of a massive tinga. We both laughed about it and I promised I’d be back more often.
Plaque build-up is not cute not does it feel nice. You know how your teeth sometimes feel fuzzy or slimy? That’s plaque right there. A quick search on google images will show you how plaque looks like and yup, it’s kind of ugly. When people smile, it’s the first thing I notice. If you have plaque build-up, please see the dentist right away because that can lead to serious dental problems!
Did you know that the simplest and easiest way to care for your teeth is by choosing the right toothbrush?
A toothbrush is an investment, which seems kind of silly because it’s an investment you have to regularly replace. For the longest time, I thought all toothbrushes were made the same. I mean, they all have bristles and they do what’s needed, so I always opted for the cheap no-frills ones because why spend more than a hundred pesos on something that I’ll have to throw out in 2-3 months?
Some toothbrushes are better than others, something I really noticed when I traded in my generic one for a fancier one. The Oral-B Pro-Health Cross Action Toothbrush has a unique 16-degree angle brush that provides superior cleaning and removes 99% of plaque build-up. Sounds too promising? Well, my teeth started feeling clean with regularly usage. You know how you sometimes unconsciously run your tongue over your teeth because they feel furry? I noticed I was doing it less after using this toothbrush.
My smile is an important part of who I am because it’s how I express my happiness and my appreciation for other people (friends or strangers). Seriously, people should smile more! With my history as a smoker and coffee-drinker, I have to go the extra mile and prioritize oral health by minimizing plaque build-up, going to the dentist, and using the right toothbrush.
If you find yourself plagued with plaque (one of the root causes of poor oral health) and shy to show off your smile, you should give the Oral-B Pro-Health Cross Action toothbrush a try. Let’s help improve our country’s state of oral health by starting with our loved ones and ourselves.
