Healthy Mouth... Healthy Life {Giveaway}

*Giveaway information & how to enter is at the bottom of this post!!*

Today I am going to be talking about how truly important it is to have a healthy mouth. Proper oral hygiene can allow for so many health benefits to take place in your life. As improper oral hygiene will cause so many health issues which is crazy think about. Most people take their oral health for granted. Our month is pretty much a window into the health of our bodies. It can show anywhere from general infection to nutritional deficiencies. As well as systemic diseases (which affect the entire body), can first show signs in your mouth which is insane.

I use to just blow off my oral health and put it to the side. I even went probably about 3 years without going to the dentist here recently. And that is a big no no.  I figured I brush my teeth everyday and I am busy with everything else I don't really have time anyway. Wrong! Always find time to go to the dentist your oral hygiene is so so important.

I finally made an important at the dentist, and my gums were so inflamed from postpartum and not going to the dentist in forever. They diagnosed me with gingivitis, and actually had to break up my cleaning in two different dentists visits. So embarrassing, but now I know to not skip dentist visits, and go more frequently so I won't have that problem again. After the first visit, I went and bought a water pick because let's be honest I am horrible at flossing and they said a water pick was the next best thing.

Then the seas parted and angels were singing down to me because at the perfect timing to getting my oral health back in gear, Smile Brilliant reached out to me about their new electric tooth brush. Never in my life have I used one before but I have heard from so many people how amazing they are. But to be honest, I would always think what is go great about an electric toothbrush, my regular one works just fine. I was so wrong, an electric toothbrush cleans my teeth and gums way way way better than a normal tooth brush and I don't think I will ever go back to using a regular one. Their Caripro Ultrasonic Toothbrush is life changing in my opinion.

The company states that, "Smile Brilliant has expanded beyond teeth whitening to develop the cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush – our first step to becoming your overall oral care solution. Same quality, better features.. The cariPRO Ultrasonic offers optimal performance for half the price of a comparable electric toothbrush. Our on-staff dental hygienists ensure that affordability doesn’t sacrifice the highest quality standards and features. Our mission is simple: provide truly transparent and complete oral care."

Pretty great right?

But there's more.... The toothbrush has 5 different settings. Yes 5! My main two settings I love to use are the clean and gum care settings especially since the dental hygienist said I need to really clean and take care of my gums. There is also a whitening setting, massage setting, and sensitive teeth setting. My teeth have never been sensitive, for example, I always bite my Popsicles which my makes my husband so mad haha! His teeth are so sensitive, so that sensitive setting would be perfect for him.

What comes in the box??

  • The cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush of course! The toothbrush has 40,000 vibrations, 30 day battery life on full charge, water proof and is safe for shower and bath, auto interval smart timer---Each brushing mode is designed to operate for two minutes, with brief pauses between each 30 second burst. That brief pause tells you to move to a different quadrant of the mouth. 
  • 2 premium brush heads with tongue scraper. You can also buy extra brush heads as well. 
  • 1 wireless induction charger dock which has no exposed metals. It charges by setting brush on dock. 
  • Full 2-year warranty. 

My specific toothbrush I have is from their individual package. Smile Brilliant offers three different packages. The two other ones that they offer are the deluxe package and couple package. 

The dental hygienist explained to me in detail about how important oral health is, and what they did too my teeth during both dental appointments. They performed a deep scaling both times, and I actually had to have topical numbing cream for them to do it. I mean they scrap the inside of your gums to make sure get all the nasty stuff that has been stuck in there. TMI I know, but I want to be raw and real with y'all about my oral health journey. The hygienist explained to me that she was pulling out gravel like substances. She mentioned it's like falling on gravel and the gravel getting stuck to your knee. Same thing with eating food, it sticks to your gums and embeds in there making it very hard to get out unless you brush and floss your teeth on a regular basis. As well as go to regular dental appointments. Even though insurance companies have you go every 6 months, it is actually best to go every 3 months due to the rate of bacterial growth increases after 90 days. And the rate of potency of the immune system decreases then as well.

Lastly, it is best to actually focuses on the space around every tooth when brushing instead of just the teeth. My dentist calls the space the ditch, and that is where the bacteria builds up. So I have been really focusing on those areas and can tell a world of a difference in my oral health. My friend actually told me this past weekend how she noticed how healthier my teeth and gums look. My gums are less inflamed and no longer red.

I highly suggest this toothbrush! And is something I will continue to use in my oral health journey.
