“It’s nearly everyday that I have to remind my daughters about the downsides of chewing gum, even if I enjoy gum myself. But what if there was a brand of chewing gum that took all those worries away?”
I don’t know about you, but I always remember my Dad being on my case about chewing gum, just the way I constantly annoy my daughters about things that may be harmful to their health. That’s why when I learned that Trident was the first sugar-free chewing gum in the U.S, I knew that I had to go through my kids’s clothes and backpacks and replace all those sugary gums for a couple packs of Trident.
So, how exactly can chewing gum contribute to your overall health, or the lack of it? As we know, sugars in food products abound, and while not all sugars and sweeteners are harmful, most of them can take a negative toll in our overall health, but specially our teeth. Chewing sugar-free Trident will not drive sugar and sweeteners directly into your kids’s teeth, and you know what that means… no trips to the dentist, and #healthysmiles! Because, who enjoys going to the dentist?
Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America is an awesome awareness and a non-profit program that is supported by Trident, and is going on 11 years strong! This program has donated over 2.5-million dollars to give #healthysmiles to children whose families aren’t able to provide oral or overall health care. Honestly, this is a huge deal to me, as I am a huge believer that there are many twists and turns in life, and that sometimes we ride high waves, and sometimes we don’t. To know that Trident truly cares is very heart-warming.
Like most awareness programs, companies and non-profit groups, they can only do so much, but the rest is up to us to make a difference, and now Trident is making it possible to make a considerable difference. During the week of September 20th, every pack of Trident gum that you and I purchase will trigger a $0.05 donation to Smiles Across America for a maximum donation of $250,000!
Do the math, that’s only 5 million packs of Trident gum, and while that may sound like a lot… just imagine that it’s only 100k packs per state, and I’m positive that the HUGE state of Texas eats a lot of gum, so Trident needs you and I get out there and help reach that goal. Or should I say, kids across America need our help to reach the #healthysmiles goal? (Void in AL, MA, and SC)
Once you are done reading this, head over to your local store and choose a traditional flavor like Spearmint, or a new and funky Tropical-Twist. Then enjoy a sugar-free gum that will even clean your teeth if chewed for twenty minutes after drinking or eating!
And don’t forget:
- Inspect that your kids brush their teeth twice a day.
- Floss at least once a day.
- Visit a dentist regularly.
- 4 out of 5 dentists surveyed recommend Trident.
