Practicing Good Oral Hygiene is the key to a healthy smile

A great smile is an expression of confidence and warmth. A healthy set of pearly whites are extremely important for a good smile, but apart from this, they’re also essential to chewing food, speaking clearly and boosting overall health, in general.

Practicing Good Oral Hygiene is the key to a healthy smile

As a mother, I take up every opportunity to better the dental health of my children, therefore, I did not pass up on the opportunity to visit the Colgate Dental camp organized in Bangalore.

Oral Healthcare and Hygiene Practice

After a free dental check-up for my little one, the doctors at the dental camp shared with us a shocking fact: 80% of parents in Bangalore are unaware of their child’s cavities! Most parents are unaware of the healthy oral hygiene habits too. However, the experienced dental team at the Colgate dental camp demonstrated oral healthcare and hygiene practice. Here are some important dental health tips to follow:

  • It is advisable to use a soft-bristled toothbrush, and brush twice a day.
  • Use a good fluoride toothpaste which strengthens the teeth.
  • Hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums and gently brush the outer, inner and chewing surface of the teeth.
  • Tilt the brush vertically and clean the inner surface by making up and down strokes.
  • Rise the mouth well with clean water.
  • The toothbrush should be replaced every three or four months.

Following this, I received 5 dental cards to share with my friends and family from the Colgate Dental Camp. These cards enabled them to get a free dental check-up.  Sadly, one friend of mine learnt that her son had developed a cavity. I am glad that the dental card helped her in the nick of time.


Post the visit to the dental camp, Colgate sent me a hamper with lots and lots of calcium rich products  From oranges and broccoli, to dates and cheese, the basket was full of essential nutrients. The highlight of it all, was the new Colgate Strong Teeth. A video was shared by Colgate, which demonstrated how the Colgate Strong Teeth works.

The new Colgate Strong teeth with Amino shakti, gives 4x strengthening power. Its unique formula helps add natural calcium to the teeth through remineralization process and makes them strong from within  Thereby, making the teeth stronger, to keep cavities and other dental problems away.


My family has benefited greatly from this journey with Colgate. Needless to say, the Colgate Strong teeth is now here to stay. I am now relieved to know that Colgate has my back when it comes to my family’s dental health!
