Your Smile Health = Your Body Health #SmileHealth

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


I've always stressed the importance of good dental hygiene to my girls because poor oral hygiene can lead to so many other health issues. Did you know that the health of your mouth affects every part of the body? Good oral health can limit your exposure to heart disease, memory loss and even stroke. That's why I made sure to set a morning and evening mouth care routine with my girls from the time they could brush their teeth so it would just become second nature to them to care for their mouths every single day without giving it a second thought. 


Oral B


Brush and rinse with mouthwash twice a day, as well as flossing after every meal has helped them keep their teeth in tip top shape. My dentist always says, "I can do good work on your teeth, but nothing I put in your mouth will be as good as the original." We keep that advice in mind all the time because we certainly want our original teeth to stick around as long as possible!

Brushing Teeth


While my kids have always been praised by our dentist for how well they care for their teeth, we actually have quite a few days dedicated to the dentist this summer. Aside from the normal cleanings they'll be receiving, Mariah will be getting her wisdom teeth removed, and after that, Leah will be getting braces put on. With all of the work that's going into their mouths this summer, I've been thinking more about our dental coverage and how a plan from Smile Health Dental Plans might be beneficial for us. 

Smile Health Dental Plans offer an alternative to traditional dental insurance, which are an affordable and simple way to get your dental needs covered. Members pay an annual fee for the plan that suits their needs, and in return get savings of 20% or more on many preventative, restorative and cosmetic dental treatments all year long. Benefits are immediate, with no health restrictions, no waiting periods, no claims, and no maximums. You get up front pricing so you know exactly what you'll owe for your treatments without surprise bills later. Check out Smile Health Dental Plans to see the three different plans to help decide which one is right for you. 

Check out this app that Smile Health Dental Plans that gives great tips on how you can maintain a healthy smile. Because a healthy smile = a healthy body!

  2. My country has a very bad dental hygiene habits, I think only about 15% or less of us have all our original teeth in our mouths. I think at least have of the nation does not wash their teeth every day.
    I wash them three or four times a day, but when I was a kid my parents never cleaned my teeth, like never ever. I went to the dentist myself all alone when I was about 13 or 14 and then fought for ten years to fix everything that was ruined. I think dental hygiene should be a part of the law or something, like you cannot enter a new school year if you haven't seen the dentist.

    PS I'm currently using an apple flavour mouthwash, very lovely ;) But never had me an electric toothbrush in my life!

    1. I think most of us with dental insurance are pretty good about getting our cleanings done twice a year, since we are already paying for them. My mom was really good about getting ours done when we were little, so thankfully we didn't have too many issues with our teeth growing up. That makes me sad that your parents weren't on top of your oral health and you had to have the sense to fix the issues all on your own at such a young age :( We live in the poorer district in our area, and our schools actually have dentists come in and do free cleanings for the kids once a year if the parents give their permission. I never saw that happen in the more affluent school districts we've been in, but I'm glad that there is help even for those who can't afford dental insurance locally.

      Apple mouthwash sounds interesting. We only have mint, bubblegum and cinnamon flavor here.

  6. As a kid I drank way too much apple juice and screwed them a bit, plus I fake brushed here and there just to get on to what I wanted to do haha stupid and care now of course. Drink a lot of water, floss, brush, and coconut oil now, that keeps the originals in there.

    1. Yeah, kids do try to weasel their way out of proper brushing, then regret that mistake when they are older. I need to do the coconut oil now. Keep hearing so many great things about it.

  12. I find it interesting that dental health can affect so many critical functions - from heart health to brain health. I admire you teaching your kids from a young age the importance of brushing and flossing - healthy teeth are so important but to recognize it's deeper than a pretty smile could be life changing.

  25. Dental health is critical to your body's overall health. I wish that our medical system provided basic dental care for all children to eighteen years of age. We'd save money by investing in dental health, not to mention a lot of pain and misery.
