Halloween Tricks and Treats for Healthy Teeth
Calling all ghosts, ghouls and goblins! This Hallows’ Eve while wicked witches are brewing their cauldrons, and zombies are creeping through the night, we suspect that you and your kids will be chanting “trick or treat!?” With all the candy enjoyed this Halloween, it’s important to take care of those pearly whites. Luckily with the great Arm & Hammer™, Spinbrush™ and Orajel™ products, you can ensure that your costume does the scaring, and not your teeth.
While Halloween brings a lot less tricks, and a lot more treats, there are some great tools to make brushing your teeth fun for kids! The new Arm & Hammer™ Spinbrush™ Super Mario Bros™ Toothbrush lets kids brush their teeth with their favourite Super Mario character. With any kids brush, it’s important that the design works for their unique needs. To make sure the toothbrush is doing what it should, look for a toothbrush that is designed with a smaller brush head (best for smaller mouths) and a brush head that helps remove plaque and massage gums. Battery powered toothbrushes are also a great option for kids, as it makes tooth brushing time that much more fun.
To help fight against cavities, strengthen teeth and add fun to your kids brushing routine, try new Orajel™ Bubble Guppies™ Kids Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste Gel and Manual Toothbrush. These are the perfect tools to help transition kids from fluoride-free to fruity fluoride toothpaste, while using characters from the hit television show Bubble Guppies. The manual toothbrush’s coloured bristle guide easily shows children where to place their toothpaste, while the soft bristles are gentle on young teeth and gums. Plus the handle provides a comfortable grip for little hands! Children under the age of three should always be supervised by an adult when brushing.
For the parents that sneak one too many treats from the candy bag, Orajel™ has what you need to make sure your sweet tooth doesn’t cause you pain. With Orajel™ Maximum Strength Toothache Pain Relief Gel, you can enjoy sweets and know that if a stubborn toothache happens as a result, you will be able to get instant relief.
Now seize the eerie night with beautiful, clean and white teeth; and Happy Halloween!
