Colgate Oral Health Month: Keeping the Smile Bright and Healthy ♥
When you get your picture taken, everyone says, "Smile!" So you open your mouth and show you teeth. When you see the picture, you see a happy person. The healthier those teeth are, the happier you look.
It's because your mouth is important in many ways. If you take care of them, they'll help take care of you. Strong, healthy teeth and gums are a result of good oral hygiene and key to overall health and well-being. And yes, they help you look your best.
9 out of 10 Filipino Kids suffer from cavities. Tooth decay is on of the top diseases affecting young children today.
That is why, I teach my children the one step toward fighting cavities with practicing, teaching and good teeth brushing habits like brushing their teeth three times a day, flossing, using a mouthwash regularly and visiting the dentist at least twice a year.
Prevention is always better than cure, If you don't take care of your teeth, cavities and unhealthy gums will make your mouth very, very sore and it can lead to diseases like gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) or periodontitis (disease of the gum and bones that support teeth) that may lead to serious consequences like the loss or extraction of teeth. Eating will be difficult and you won't feel like smiling so much.
Colgate together with the Philippine Dental Association and in partnership with Watsons celebrated Oral Health Month last February 16, 2014 at SM Mall of Asia Atrium. Keeping the Filipino smile brighter and healthier than ever before.
Oral Health month is a month-long celebration, where Colgate and PDA visit barangays nationwide to give oral check ups, basic dental services and for a chance to take home free Colgate products.
Visit https://www.facebook.com/ColgatePhilippines/ to see the schedule of Barangay dental check-up.

COLGATE KIDS BOOTH
A friendly reminder from Dr. Rabbit and the Tooth Defenders.
Colgate Kids is a toothpaste with fruity flavor and it contains fluoride, delicious flavor and exciting sparkling look, helps strengthen and protect teeth from cavities.
When choosing a toothpaste for your kids, make sure it contains fluoride. Fluoride makes teeth strong and protects them from cavities.
Remember Brush, Brush, Brush 3x a day!
For healthy teeth, less cavities and keep beautiful smile sparkly white.
I love that they have a booth with role playing through puppetry which is a good way for children to educate in giving the message from Dr. Rabbit and the tooth defenders on how to keep teeth healthy.
They use this puppet and mascots to teach children about teeth, brushing their teeth and flossing.
The kids are eagerly listening at the puppet show and their feedback was that they learned so much and it was a really great show!

COLGATE SLIMSOFT CHARCOAL BOOTH
Personalize your Toothbrush
Colgate SlimSoft Charcoal Deeper & Gentle Clean Toothbrush. This booth was a big help because I love the idea of having it personalized with your name and date that you should replace your toothbrush which is every 3 months.
When you buy a Colgate 360 or Slim Soft Charcoal toothbrush from Watsons and to have your name and the replacement date engraved on your toothbrush for free!
Colgate SlimSoft Charcoal toothbrush is what I am currently using and I really love how it is ultra soft with Charcoal bristles and feels gentle on the gums yet effective in removing bacteria with 0.01 mm Slim Tip Bristles.

I really love our engraved Colgate SlimSoft Charcoal toothbrush. ♥

Bacteria is building up in your mouth! Take a quick check here.

COLGATE SENSITIVE PRO-RELIEF BOOTH
Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief is a toothpaste with Pro-Argin Technology and the first toothpaste that is clinically proven to provide instant & lasting relief from dentine hypersensitivity.
I was put to a test to bite on ice cubes and I did felt "pangingilo" on my teeth.
Dentine hypersensitivity or as we know it as "pangingilo" it can get pretty painful especially when chewing through your favorite sweet treats and eating cold. One minute you're chewing and the next your teeth are suddenly icily in pain.
Enjoy eating ice candy and your favorite dessert without feeling pain with Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief.
I felt instant relief after applying directly to the sensitive tooth with my fingertip and gently massaged for 1 minute. I was treated with yummy ice candy without feeling pain.
