I have said it before, but I will say it again…
Oral Health is important in our family. I am strict about dentist visits, teeth brushing and everything in-between. There is family history on both sides of issues, and my goal is to keep them as much at bay as I can. Both kids brush after all meals at home, floss in the car when it is needed and use mouth wash at LEAST twice a day.
The down side…some of the products that are out there are just way to harsh for kids mouths. Kids get to a point where children’s tooth paste just won’t work anymore and they need to move up to adult tooth paste…but the flavors and ingredients can be so harsh that a child can get a burn on their tongues! Can you believe it!
Ever had your 10-year-old use an adult mouth wash…yeah that’s not fun for anyone involved.
Crest has come out with a product line that it made for Tweens and Teen, a step up from children’s products, but not quite as intense as adult brands. Welcome Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health FOR ME!
This has to be the best thing to cross my kids mouths! They have both said so.
Boo is off the age where she is starting to care more and more about what she looks like, how she presents herself to her friends. She is taking more and more time on her looks, and this product has made that a lot easier. Boo hated using kids tooth paste, she hates bubble gum flavors. She doesn’t like the mouth washes, but loves the For Me line! Her mouth doesn’t burn when she uses it, and it has made teeth time so much easier!
She also is off the age where the celebrities that she loves make an impact on what she does. Being a HUGE Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2 fan, she watched the video of Alyson Stoner with avid interest. She has even taken what she says and ran with it. She takes more time, and makes sure that she gets every tooth, front back and in-between.
We also have braces in our house (and will again in a few years with Boo) and the For Me Floss Picks work WONDERS on braces! They fit between and under the wires, and keeping the wires and brackets clean is HUGE for fresh and clean breath! The Oral-B Pro-Health For Me CrossAction Toothbrush has soft, criss-cross bristles that get in between as well, something that most tooth brushes just don’t have.
Plus, Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health FOR ME line has some cool bonus features for the crazy tweens and teens in our lives. They have created “Yuck Mouth,” an iPhone and Android app and online game! Check it out over here.
Head on over to the Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health FOR ME website to read about all the great features, get an action plan for oral health and even play “Yuck Mouth”!
Encouraging kids to brush, floss and rinse is crucial for good oral health. So many kids miss school each year for tooth decay and other oral issues. Missing school, parents missing work and simply missing life. Taking the time to show our kids what to do, and to lead by example is so important.
I was supplied with a sample of the Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health FOR ME line to try out. The opinions and thoughts are my own!
