Keep your smile bright and healthy by brushing up with Glister, Amway’s oral care brand


Glister Oral Hygiene

We have our mouths and teeth to thank for everything, from expressing ourselves to savoring every beautiful meal. Given the amount of wear and tear our teeth endure, it's not surprising that they're brittle. We are continually exposed to variables that might contribute to cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss.

GlisterTM, the popular dental care brand of Amway, the entrepreneur-led health and wellness organization, makes a case for paying greater attention to our teeth, especially now that the Department of Health has discovered that at least 73 million Filipinos suffer from tooth decay.

Dr. Anna May Carina of General Dentistry & Orthodontics tells us that many foods and drinks that we commonly consume today, such as soda, ice cream, cakes, and other sweet cravings, have a negative impact on our oral health.

"When we consume too many of these foods and beverages, we are not assisting our saliva in its job of clearing away food debris and neutralizing acids." They remain on your teeth for a longer period of time than only produces an oral environment in which bacteria can thrive, increasing your risk of plaque formation, which can eventually remove your tooth's protective enamel," explains Dr. Carina. "While we cannot totally eliminate all of these foods and beverages from our lives, we can mitigate their impact on our dental health.

The dental care expert points out that the solutions are something people already know about but tend to take for granted. She underlines that brushing our teeth twice a day is the standard as this will help destroy or remove harmful bacteria inside the mouth and prevent tartar buildup before it hardens into position.

“This is something we all know, yet many brush their teeth without intention. If you really want to keep your teeth strong, brush them for at least two minutes each time and gently move the brush back and forth in short strokes. Make sure to brush the outer, inner, and chewing surfaces of the teeth,” reminds Dr. Carina.

She also suggests using a soft-bristled brush that should be replaced every three to four months or when the bristles become obviously worn out. Another item to think about is toothpaste with just the correct quantity of fluoride. "Fluoride can provide additional protection against tooth decay." It not only prevents cavities, but it can also cure minor tooth damage. To get the most out of your fluoride toothpaste, avoid rinsing it. Immediately after brushing, put your toothbrush in your mouth. "Just spit out any excess toothpaste," Dr. Carina advises.

The expert then highlights another step that should be in everyone’s daily routine, flossing, which can remove the plaque below the gumline, reduce the risk of cavities, and prevent gingivitis. 

“Flossing daily is something that a lot of people often overlook. It has a specific goal that brushing alone won’t achieve. It’s meant to remove the accumulation of plaque between the teeth and underneath the gums, where germs thrive,” emphasizes Dr. Carina. “If you bleed whenever you floss, this may be a sign of gingivitis, but keep at it. If your gingivitis is mild, flossing can help manage and reduce this over time.” 

To help rinse food debris after flossing, the dentist recommends using mouthwash. “Some think using mouthwash is unnecessary, but it does help reduce the number of harmful bacteria inside the mouth, which is essential in reducing plaque and even gum inflammation and infections. You can also use it at another time of the day, perhaps in the middle of the day to quickly freshen your breath,” notes Dr. Carina.  

To support all the dentist-recommended ways of keeping our smiles healthy and bright, Glister advocates an effective Total Oral Care System that’s designed to clean teeth, freshen breath, and keep gums healthy with its plant-based dental solutions infused with traceable Nutrilite™-grown peppermint: Glister Multi-Action Toothpaste for gently and effectively removing plaque and preventing cavities, Glister Multi-Action Dental Floss that’s especially designed to remove plaque in between teeth while also gently stimulating the gums, and Glister Multi-Action Concentrated Oral Rinse that can help kill gingivitis and bad breath-causing bacteria. 

The brand also offers other solutions that support this system like the Glister Multi-Action Toothbrush that’s engineered to clean hard-to-reach areas and the Glister Mint Refresher Spray for long-lasting fresh breath while on the go. 

 Apart from maintaining appearance, good oral health can also be linked to overall health, as it is the gateway to a healthy body. Smile confidently and start boosting your daily oral hygiene with scientifically designed and clinically-supported Glister.
