Maginhawa foodtrip this holiday season makes perfect blend with Gumtect

As the cold evening breeze touches our skin, Christmas lights glow the night, bibingka, puto bumbong, and other delectable foods for holiday reunions, we can say that the feels of Christmas is finally here!

However, how are we sure enough that our teeth and gums can take the challenge of unlimited celebrations?

As partners who support oral healthcare for Gumtect, Doug and Chesca Kramer gave insights on the importance of taking care of our teeth and gums this holiday season for us not to miss any bonding moments with our loved ones.

Doug recommends oral care with the use of Gumtect Gum Care toothpaste, which works to promote healthy gums, protects against harmful mouth bacteria, and moisturizes and strengthens the gums.

In a study in 2011 conducted by the National Monitoring and Evaluation Dental Survey, about 48% of Filipinos suffer from some form of gum disease. Receding gums are often accompanied with tooth sensitivity.

Commonly caused by wearing of the thin outer covering of the tooth (enamel), over-brushing, acidic food, and gum receding, pangingilo or dental hypersensitivity begins when the inner part of the tooth is uncovered. This results to an oh-so-familiar brief yet sharp sensation of tooth sensitivity.

Chesca strongly recommends using Gumtect Sensitive toothpaste and Gumtect Sensitive mouthwash as they are specially formulated with Dynamic Desensitizing System to be able to help relieve tooth sensitivity or dental hypersensitivity.

In a speech, Dr. JV Jaurigue, External Vice President of the Philippine Society of Periodontology, discussed about the connection of gum health with overall health and stressed the importance of proper oral care.

He said that oral care is essential to our health adding that rather than dealing with complications and difficulties of gum diseases, it is better to prevent them from happening.

Meanwhile, Atria Casidsid, Gumtect Brand Marketing Manager, talked about how Gumtect Gumcare and Gumtect Sensitive are especially formulated to help promote healthy gums so that gum problems won’t be a problem this holiday season.

Gumtect Gumcare is proud to be the only gum care toothpaste with GUMSHIELD+ which contains Allantoin that improves the condition of the gums, Vitamin E which moisturizes gums, and Triclean which helps to reduce the formation of plaque and shields against harmful mouth bacteria while Gumtect Sensitive has a Dynamic Desensitizing System that helps relieve sensitive teeth.

Both Gumtect Sensitive and Gumtect Gumcare also have Active Anti-Cavity Protection that ensures fresh breath and strong teeth enamel.

The Kramers, as special guests at the Food Crawl in Maginhawa, enjoyed hot bowls of ramen, desserts like lemon squares and keylime pie, sipped coffee, and competed in food challenges like the Mais Con Hielo relay and Sip the Noodle challenge.

The couples reminded them to “make the ‘Ber months as Care months” for our oral health, especially for our teeth and gums with the help of Gumtect.
