CINCINNATI Procter & Gamble’s Oral-B brand has teamed up with health and wellness coach Jillian Michaels from NBC’s television show “The Biggest Loser” to encourage Americans to improve their oral health.
“When I encourage people to lead a healthier lifestyle, I remind them that it’s not just about weight loss or one area of your health‹it?s about whole body wellness. All of our systems are connected and the health of one area may impact another, including the health of your mouth,” stated Michaels. “For example, switch from a regular manual toothbrush to a power toothbrush such as Vitality Precision Clean. It reduces up to twice as much plaque and leaves your teeth feeling clean and smooth everyday. Plus, I love knowing that I?m keeping my mouth healthy in between dental visits.”
Tips offered by Michaels include:
• Choosing water instead of acidic sodas or sports drinks and opt for sugar-free gum or mints when possible.
• Select toothpastes that provide oral health benefits or a toothbrush that notifies you when to switch quadrants of your mouth.
• Consider a power brush such as the Oral-B Vitality Precision Clean that, according to the company, reduces up to two times more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush.
