Aquafresh Advanced Futures

01 Nov

As parents we have big dreams for our children. Whether we want them to become Doctors, teachers or dentists, we all want what we think is best for our little ones. I want what any other parent wants for their child, for them to grow up happy and healthy with a better education than I was able to achieve. I want them to grow up with more opportunities and more of a chance to show the world who they really are and what they can really do. I want to try to make sure my kids will be all that they can be, in anything they do in life.

Aquafresh is having a contest to help parent’s aspirations for their children come true with the Aquafresh Advanced Futures contest; you simply share a wish you have for your child and you could win $10,000 towards an RESP! Perfect for starting off that education to become a dentist, doctor or whatever else we can imagine them to be. Entering the contest is simple, head on over to the Aquafresh contest website and share your aspirations for your chance to win, the contest closes November 30th!

The Aquafresh team is dedicated to making products that help keep our mouths healthy and protected. They are a trusted name in providing dental protection for ourselves and our families. Aquafresh Advanced, an enamel strengthening formula, contains active fluoride which penetrates deep into tooth enamel to strengthen teeth from the inside out – for strong, healthy-looking teeth for a lifetime.

Brushing your teeth is important in every day hygiene and its good to start teaching your kids at a young age to brush those pearly whites! Here are some great tips to help you and your little one get brushing:

  • Make it a habit. Children should get into a healthy routine of brushing after breakfast and before bed. They should brush for at least two minutes so that the fluoride has time to work.
  • Limit the amount of toothpaste. Children under 6 years of age don’t need more than a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste to clean effectively. This will also help that tube last a little longer!
  • Be supportive. Up until first grade or later, kids will need supervision and coaching to brush properly. Make brushing more fun by playing or singing a favorite song, setting a timer to count down two minutes, or offering to read a favorite story as a reward.

It’s Giveaway time!

    Maddy had a battery operated Care Bear tooth brush and you pressed it on and it sang a song – it prompted her to brush her teeth until the song was over!

    Get some disclosing tablets so kids can see the “Sugarbugs” (Plaque!) on their teeth and lead by example showing them to brush round + round in circles! ☺

    I started my son at 5 months so he’ll keep his mouth open for short times so I just have to be really fast and when I’m done I let him chew on the toothbrush.

    I use the rotating toothbrushes, makes it easier for the kids to clean their teeth properly, as their motor skills are fully developped yet. And finding a very good and funny dentist, kids seem to listen to him more.
