I am being compensated by Trident by participating in the Mom It Blogger Network campaign.
There are so many different brands of gum out there now. When I was a kid it seemed like there were maybe five different brands and not many flavors. When there were five or so choices – our choice was always Trident Gum. In fact, Trident Gum was the first national sugar-free gum in the US, and is the leading sugar-free gum brand. Looking back – I am sure the reason I was allowed to have Trident was because it was sugar free. Now – there are flavors for everything practically – something for every gum chewer of every age.
It really doesn’t matter how many brands there are though – Trident Gum is what we always choose, even now. For me, it probably has alot to do with it being my gum of choice ever since I was a kid. But our kids pick Trident as their gum of choice too without any input from us.
There are so many reasons to stick with Trident – other than I grew up with it… Trident has supported Oral Health America’s non-profit program Smiles Across America for the past 11 years, donating more than $2,500,000. This donation has helped more than two million underserved children get preventative dental care so they can have a healthy smile, an important part of overall health.
And next week – the week of September 20th: For each pack of Trident purchased, Trident will donate 5¢ to Smiles Across America, up to $250K. Void in AL, MA and SC. That donation is going to be phenomenal for Smiles Across America!
How do you ensure healthy oral care? We all know brush and floss – but what else can you do? Well for starters you can brush at least twice a day and for at least two minutes each time. Many people do the brushing – it is the flossing routine that is often not a priority – and you should floss at least once per day. Visiting a dentist every six months is also essential – keep your teeth clean and if by chance there is anything that needs to be addressed, you can catch it nice and early and fix it easily.
Lastly – chew Trident for 20 minutes after eating and drinking to help clean and protect teeth. In fact, 4 out of 5 Dentists surveyed would recommend Trident to their patients. Whether you’re in the mood for a refreshing mint flavor like Spearmint or a delicious fruit flavor like Tropical Twist, Trident has you covered and helps fight cavities. My favorite is Cinnamon – always has been! I am definitely a creature of habit. My kids love the fruitier type flavors.
