September is Oral Health Month and Sunstar GUM is on a mission to raise awareness around oral health in South Africa. According to Johannesburg based oral hygienist, Sarie Liebenberg, “around 80% of humans have some form of gum disease”, with cases ranging from mild to severe. Luckily, the first stage of gum disease, Gingivitis, can be prevented with brushing twice a day and flossing a least once a day. This helps balance the good and bad bacteria in your mouth and keeps gum disease at bay. But we get it, flossing can be a bit of a chore which is why Sunstar GUM is making things a little bit easier with its all-new curved dental picks now available in small, regular and large sizes. With a size for every smile, GUM Soft-Picks Advanced are perfect for cleaning narrow or wide interdental spaces.
Designed by Sunstar GUM’s oral care experts especially for effective cleaning in-between, GUM Soft-Picks Advanced are ideal for anyone who finds flossing a fuss, but understands a healthy mouth equals a healthy body. Curved to follow the natural shape of the jaw, the innovative shape makes it easy to reach between each tooth – even those at the far back of the mouth. The soft rubber bristles gently dislodge food and plaque, whilst giving the gums a gentle micro-massage.
Ideal for cleaning orthodontics, bridges and implants, they are safe to use, even for those with sensitive gums. They’re also ideal solution for oral health on the go. Each pack comes with a handy travel case to make looking after your oral health while travelling so much easier! GUM Soft-Picks Advanced are recommended by dental professionals around the world. If you’re not sure which size best suits your smile, ask your dentist or oral hygienist for expert advice.
GUM Soft-Picks Advanced are available from Clicks, selected dentists, Dis-Chem, Pick n Pay and pharmacies at a recommended retail price of R89 (for a pack of 30 including a handy travel case). For more information say Hi to IVO Health on Facebook or Twitter.
