To help more Filipinos improve their overall health through better gum care, Gumtect is inviting Filipinos to tune in to “Gumtalk with Gumtect” web show happening on May 20, 4 p.m. at Gumtect’s Facebook page, facebook.com/Gumtect.
Our lifestyles may have changed drastically during the pandemic, especially as lockdowns continue to be enforced in many cities. As we are asked to stay at home to help fight the spread of the virus, we also have to deal with various situations like working and studying from home. Visits to the dentist and caring for our oral health can sometimes be neglected in the midst of these challenges.
But taking care of our teeth and gums is not only essential to maintaining a healthy mouth; good oral care is also closely linked to our overall health.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), oral health is a key indicator of overall health, well-being and quality of life. They further shared that most oral diseases share some risk factors with conditions like cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes, among others.
These risk factors include tobacco use, alcohol consumption and unhealthy diets high in sugar, all of which are increasing at the global level. For example, it is reported that diabetes is linked with the development and progression of periodontitis (a severe gum infection that can lead to tooth loss and other serious complications). There is also a link between high consumption of sugars and the development of dental caries, diabetes and obesity.
As oral healthcare advocates for Gumtect, celebrity couple Doug and Chesca Kramer wants to remind Filipinos that good teeth and gum care remain a must during this pandemic.
“Being under quarantine, working and studying from home, I understand that it’s a frustrating situation for all of us. So, we may all have indulged a bit more in stress eating, snacking on sweets and coffee. I also have a sweet tooth so I can relate to this, but we always need to remember to practice good oral hygiene because neglecting this can lead to more serious health problems,” shared Doug.
Doug advocates oral care with the use of Gumtect Gum Care toothpaste, which works to promote healthy gums, helps protect against harmful mouth bacteria, and helps to moisturize and strengthen the gums. Gumtect Gum Care is the only gum care toothpaste with GUMSHIELD+ which contains Allantoin to improve the condition of gums, Vitamin E, which moisturizes gums, and Triclean, which helps to reduce the formation of plaque and shields against harmful mouth bacteria.
As a mom, Chesca Kramer agreed that it is important for her to continue to help her kids build good oral care habits. As someone who has sensitive teeth, she also needs to take care of her gums, so she doesn’t suffer from pangingilo. She recommends using Gumtect Sensitive toothpaste and Gumtect Sensitive mouthwash which have the Dynamic Desensitizing System to help relieve tooth sensitivity.
Both Gumtect Sensitive and Gumtect Gum Care also have Active Anti-Cavity Protection that helps to ensures fresh breath and strong teeth enamel. This proudly Pinoy brand is also professionally accepted by the Philippine Dental Association.
