Here’s a truth often overlooked: our mouth is a portal for overall health. It’s where both nutrition and disease enter the body, so it’s important to give it attention. Keeping mouth, teeth, and oral microbiome healthy is a critical path to feeling safe and protected. Plus, a healthy and happy smile is also important in building self-confidence.
This is why observing proper oral hygiene is a must to keep our mouths—and smiles—healthy. Plus, it also helps prevent issues like cavities, gum diseases, and bad breath by maintaining the balance of bacteria in our mouths and keeping the harmful ones under control.
Glister, the dental care brand of Amway, is advocating a 3-Step Oral Care System that’s designed to gently clean teeth, freshen breath, and keep gums healthy—all without disrupting the delicate oral microbiome.
Here are the three steps to a healthy, happy smile:
Step 1: Brush
Glister Multi-Action Toothpaste gently and effectively prevents cavities, removes plaque, and reduces staining on teeth enamel. Like all the other Glister formulas, this toothpaste boasts of plant- and naturally derived ingredients, including natural silica that gently polishes teeth and traceable Nutrilite-grown peppermint.
It also comes with the Reminact technology which helps redeposit essential minerals back onto the enamel through remineralization. This helps strengthen the teeth and makes them more resistant to decay. Glister toothpaste also has just the right amount of fluoride, to prevent the demineralization effect of acid formed in the plaque of the teeth. It’s also formulated with no alcohol, parabens, or animal-derived ingredients.
Complementing this step is the Glister Multi-Action Toothbrush—available in soft and medium bristles. It has a thinner head (for more effective cleaning of hard-to-reach places) and an integrated tongue/cheek cleaner.
Step 2: Floss
Flossing is a must to clean every nook and cranny of the teeth that brushing alone may miss. Glister Multi-Action Dental Floss is especially designed for this job. It removes plaque from hard-to-reach areas while also gently stimulating the gums. It has a flat ribbon shape that’s coated with a naturally derived wax that allows it to slide and glide smoothly between teeth and just below the gumline.
Step 3: Rinse
Completing the 3-Step Oral Care System is the Glister Multi-Action Concentrated Oral Rinse that can help kill gingivitis and bad breath-causing bacteria. It can also significantly reduce plaque and clean between teeth, compared to just brushing. With its highly concentrated formula, this oral rinse can also be diluted for up to 100 uses per bottle. It’s infused with Nutrilite-powered peppermint essential oil and has no artificial dye, alcohol, peroxide, sugar, or parabens.
Meanwhile, if you’re on the go and need instant fresh breath, you can count on Glister Mint Refresher Spray. Each spray is designed to deliver the right amount of freshness for the entire mouth with just a single pump and has been shown to provide strong antimicrobial action against oral bacteria. It also kills 99.99% of oral bacteria generally known to cause bad breath and tooth decay.
