I let my kids chew gum, but only Sugar Free Trident. Occasionally they can have something with more sugar, but my go to has always been Trident. With fun flavors like Bubble Gum, Island Berry Lime and Tropical Twist, I can satisfy my chewing pleasure with a blast of flavor! What I did not know about Trident is that that Trident has supported Oral Health America’s non-profit program Smiles Across America for the past 11 years, donating more than $2,500,000!! How awesome is that?
Their donations have helped more than two million underserved children get preventative dental care so they, too, can have a healthy smile, an important part of overall health.
How can we help? Buy a pack of gum! That’s it!
During the week of September 20th, every pack of Trident gum purchased will spur a $0.05 donation to Smiles Across America, up to $250,000. Void in AL, MA and SC.
That is a lot of money for kids who really need to have dental care! I love it!
Since Trident is the first national sugar-free gum in the US and the the leading sugar-free gum brand, it makes sense that it would be so active in making sure kid’s teeth everywhere are in working order. Chewing it can help keep the cavity fills at bay which is why is it the best gum for my house!
Taking care of teeth is more than not chewing gums full of sugar, though! It also requires daily care that I have tried to instill in my kids since day 1! Yes, we have already had our first cavity but after watching my little one handle the filling like a trooper, and then paying the bill, I am all about making sure we are doing everything possible to prevent another one! The tips below can help!
- Brush teeth twice a day, for at least two minutes each time
- Floss daily
- Visit a dentist regularly – every six months
- Chewing Trident for 20 minutes after eating and drinking helps to clean and protect teeth. In fact, 4 out of 5 Dentists surveyed would recommend Trident to their patients.
Get to the store next week and buy your monthly supply of Trident knowing that every purchase makes a difference! Be sure to share this wonderful cause with your friends too!
