BritMums are working with Oral B to get us thinking about gum health.
I think gums are one of those parts of our bodies that we don't really think about much, we worry about needing a filling in our tooth but not about the things that hold the tooth!
It's ironic I should come across this challenge just after posting the other day about how I'm trying to look after my mouth with coconut oil, there's lots of articles about how it can help your gums and keep plaque (which is causes by bacteria) at bay.
Oral-B Pro-Expert Premium Gum Protection toothpaste is new and Oral-B want us to think about gum health with a 'Love your gums' campaign. I was very surprised to read that 50% of pregnant women will struggle with swollen or bleeding gums during pregnancy.
This post is an entry for BritMums’ #ORALBLoveYourGums Challenge sponsored by Oral-B, promoting healthy gums – something especially important for pregnant women. Get tips and advice on www.oralb-loveyourgums.com.
