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 to see the schedule of Barangay dental check-up. 

Don't miss it!

I can always show my best and beautiful smile with zero cavities!

Colgate in cooperation with the PDA and Watsons is working more than ever to attain its goal of Zero Cavities.

Brush the cavities away!
Colgate Maximum Cavity Protection for stronger teeth and a fresh feeling mouth that helps strengthen teeth with cavity-fighting fluoride protection and a great mint taste that leaves mouth feeling clean and fresh. 

This booth is a fun interactive game play to brush as many cavities as you can in 30 seconds to prevent losing any teeth.

My son having so much fun brushing away cavities. 
Go Elijah!

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!

Capture unwanted plaque with Plax atomic rings!
Colgate Plax mouthwash comes in a variety of flavors and types. Ranging from fresh mint, fruity fresh, whitening and complete care. The Colgate Plax range has plenty of variants to choose from. It is affordable and it caters to different needs.

Colgate Plax for a cleaner, fresher, healthier mouth, rinse with Colgate Plax after brushing:
 Cleans hard to reach places in your mouth. 
 Kills bacteria up to 99.9 %
 Protects for 12 hours
 No burning sensation—because it has no alcohol!

My son capturing unwanted plaque with plax atomic rings. 
He was excited to use Colgate Plax Fruity Fresh Mouthwash that he won as a prize in the Colgate Plax Booth. 

Colgate Plax Fruity Fresh Mouthwash contains natural fruit extract with the aromatic taste of fruit and mint, has a fresh and pleasant feeling in the mouth without a burning sensation that my kids love. 

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.
Engraving our toothbrush. 
I really love our engraved Colgate SlimSoft Charcoal toothbrush. ♥ 

Bacteria is building up in your mouth! Take a quick check here.  
Colgate Total toothpaste provides 12-hour protection against bacteria build-up. 

My son Elijah having his mouth check with the bacteria build up that may exist that we don't see. Here, bacteria shows up under special UV light testing. 

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. 

Do you experience pangingilo? You can have a sensitivity test at this booth 
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. 


Meet Dr. Rabbit and the Tooth Defenders- Chompers, Dr. Brushwell, Floss boy, Toothbrush girl and Toothpaste boy and girl  fighting the scary slimy Placulus and plaque monster. 

The Tooth Defenders have proven that brushing teeth three times a day with Colgate to strengthen teeth, fights plaque and helps keep you healthy overall so you can do great things everyday! 

The beautiful celebrity endorser of Colgate Solenn Heussaff story telling with the book called "Dr. Rabbit and the Tooth Defenders" to children. 


Moms like me, together with Dr. Rabbit and Dr. Brushwell we fight Placulus and Plaque Monster with Colgate and regular visit to the dentist  
My dentist recommend it and one of the reason I have chosen Colgate as my only brand is because I trust Colgate with my oral health and that other brands tend to irritate my skin. Colgate as the leader in promoting oral health in the country. 

My family only trust Colgate for a beautiful and healthy smile!

And we ought to never neglect taking care of it because we should think of it as one of our prized possessions. Without a clean and healthy teeth, we would look awful and untidy. So, for me, it really is a must to always brush our teeth 3x a day and not just brush it but also to use dental floss, mouth wash, and any other gum/teeth related products in order for it to be as healthy as possible. :)
