With Fall well underway I am sure everyone is enjoying the harvests of fall with delicious apples, pumpkins and squash but are you taking care of your teeth properly before eating or drinking items that are acidic? Apples are very acidic and before enjoying these healthy fruits one should use a toothpaste that will protect their teeth from the effects of Acid Wear.
Did you know that nearly half of Canadians (46 per cent) say they consumer fresh fruits and fruit juices daily? I am really happy about the numbers when it comes to fresh fruit.
ProNamel is proven to help protect from the effects if acid wear and also provides many of the benefits of a regular toothpaste like cavity protection, breath freshening and it also helps to remove plaque with brushing. ProNamel is safe to be used twice a day, everyday as your regular toothpaste.
I especially love the cool minty taste of the ProNamel toothpaste. I was actually quite surprised as usually mint isn't my favorite as it can be over powering. This one is just a nice mint and the paste is not gritty but very smooth going onto your teeth and in your mouth.
ProNamel helps to re-harden acid-softened enamel making it stronger and ore resistant to future acid wear. Now you can keep enjoying your favorite foods and beverages! A few of our families favorite fall dishes are apple pies and apple crisp. My son also LOVES my homemade cinnamon apple sauce.
We recently tried a new apple crisp recipe by Rose Reisman but changed up a few things. I didn't have dried cranberries in the house (hmm I think we have a cranberry monster snacking on them) raisins were the substitute. I also didn't have cornstarch so I used flour instead.
Visit ProNamel and take the quiz to see if you are at risk for Acid Wear. Find out the Truth about acid on the website also.
