As a mother to a 6-year old boy, his health is my utmost priority. His diet is taken care of, his exercise, his vaccinations, his personal hygiene, I’ve always doted on every aspect of his health- or so I thought, until my recent visit to the Colgate dental camp.
The Colgate dental camp saw several parents across my city bringing in their kids for a free check-up. After my little one got his teeth checked up, the doctor informed me of a cavity that was beginning to form in one of his molars. Initially, this came as a shock to me, but it all started to fall in place soon- I had paid little attention to his dental health, he therefore had developed dental issues.The doctor also told me that I was not alone in this regard- so many parents are unaware of the dental health issues faced by their children, due to lack of awareness. A survey by Colgate has reported that every 1 in 4 kids in Delhi have cavities
The doctor then told us to take some precautionary measures, in order to prevent the cavity from worsening, and to take better care of my son’s dental health:
-Brushing twice a day in order to keep plaque cavities at bay.
-Flossing daily is as important as brushing.
-The gums and tongue are equally important, and could weigh down oral hygiene if not tended to.
-Proper nutrition through a healthy diet and regular dental check-ups are key to dental health and thereby, over- all health.
I was also given 5 Colgate dental cards to share with my friends and family, which entitles to a free dental check-up. Out of the 5 who got their kids checked-up, 3 of them learnt of their kids’ having cavities. This was truly disheartening. The state of dental health in our country is in a pretty bad shape.
After my visit to dental camp, I received a lovely hamper from Colgate. The hamper was packed with various calcium rich products such as museli, cheese, prune, almond, kiwi and so much more.
The hamper also came with the solution to my concerns related to dental health and oral care: the all new Colgate Strong Teeth!The all new Colgate Strong Teeth with Amino Shakti, gives 4x strengthening power which helps to add natural calcium to the teeth through remineralization process, and strengthens them from within.
Colgate also shared a video that demonstrates the working of the Colgate Strong Teeth, and how it fights cavities.This was an interesting and informative way to create more awareness about dental health.
I started off as a worried mother of a son with a cavity. Now, with the Colgate Strong Teeth and a diet enriched by calcium and protein, I have started on a journey towards strong and healthier teeth for my family. My sincere advice to all moms and dads out there is to start the journey with me, today!
Thanks Yogits for details information, I too will take care of my kid’s teeth with colgate
Flossing is something we miss , so now will remember it for myself and my kids 🙂
