I am excited to announce that Trident Gum has partnered with with soccer star and Olympic Gold Medalist, Alex Morgan for their Smiles Across America Program that they have supported for over 10 years. The Smiles Across America Program is dedicated to raising public awareness on children's oral health care. The program provides children who are underprivileged or uninsured with school based oral exams and disease prevention services such as dental sealants. You see lots of parents understand that oral care is important but may not have the funds or the means to help their kids get good dental care. Oral Health America anticipates that more than 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental illness, which inevitably hinders a child's performance and achievements in the classroom. Untreated oral disease can really affect a persons life. Not only does it affect their health but their self esteem as well. Trident has already donated over $200,000 to help kids have a healthy smile. You can help Trident in their efforts for Healthy Smiles. For every pack of Trident gum you purchase during the week of September 15, Trident will make a donation to Smiles Across America up to $200,000. Did you know that Trident is the first national sugar – free chewing gum? In comes in flavors like Spearmint, Tropical Twist and more.
Here are some oral care tips from Alex Morgan:
- Brush teeth twice a day, for at least two minutes each time: The first thing I do each morning and last thing I do before I go to bed is brush my teeth.
- Floss: It's annoying to have food caught between your teeth, so I make a point to floss once a day to remove food where a brush just can’t reach.
- Visit a dentist regularly: To keep your mouth healthy it's important to visit a dentist regularly.
- Chew Trident sugar-free gum: I always keep a pack of Trident sugar-free gum with me. Four out of five dentists would recommend Trident – they must know what they're talking about…
- SMILE! Confidence is everything: I get to meet a lot of amazing fans at games, so I have to practice my smile. Everyone looks better when they flash a big smile.
