Maintain your oral hygieneWe hear from a young age that it’s vitally important to establish good oral hygiene and dietary habits to maintain optimum oral health and here’s why – according to the Australian Dental Association, oral health and hygiene affects our overall wellbeing. That sounds like a pretty strong argument for paying attention to not only how and when we are brushing, but also a whole range of other behaviours we can incorporate into our lives to ensure we have fresh breath and healthy teeth and gums into the future.
Oral health is dependent on a number of factors, ranging from regular brushing and using proper brushing technique to limiting sugary foods and acidic, sweet drinks in your diet and visiting the dentist on a regular basis.
Comvita Propolis Toothpaste is formulated as a 100% natural alternative to standard fluoridated toothpastes and contains Propolis, an ingredient that is known for its antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Comvita Propolis also contains xylitol, an ingredient that is shown to help prevent plaque build-up with regular brushing and Tea Tree, peppermint and spearmint oils, and menthol for fresh breath. All Comvita toothpastes and toothgels are free from Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Fluoride, artificial flavours and colours, harsh abrasives and preservatives. Simply start with a pea-sized blob of toothpaste and gently brush all surfaces of your teeth for at least 2-3 minutes.
Comvita Olive Leaf Oral Spray contains olive leaf extract fresh from our farm, combined with sage leaf extract to maintain oral health between brushing, and to keep your mouth moist and your breath fresh, particularly in air conditioning and while travelling (especially on planes!). Comvita Olive Leaf Oral Spray is perfect to carry with you, in a bag or pocket, for whenever you may need a blast of freshness throughout the day.
Another fantastic oral care product is Comvita Propolis Extract Alcohol Free. Propolis is a natural antibacterial agent and a few drops of Propolis Extract in a small glass of water is great as a mouthwash. After swishing around the mouth, enjoy the continued benefits by swallowing the water and Propolis mix. An easy to use product, Propolis Extract Alcohol Free is great to use when travelling to minimise toiletries and still have the benefits of taking a mouthwash.
