To fight cavities, arm yourself Want to employ an edge in the battle for great oral health? Start by arming yourself with the right weapon. Fighting cavities with a manual toothbrush is like a soldier racing into combat with just a slingshot. While the manual brush is effective, technological advances have made battery-powered toothbrushes an even better and more efficient way to fight the enemy. The truth is manual toothbrushes just can’t reach everything. In fact, despite vigorous brushing, you may still leave food and plaque behind when using a manual brush. The Arm & Hammer(r) Spinbrush(r) ProClean(r) toothbrush is an affordable and effective way to upgrade your brushing experience. The oscillating head and bristles removes up to 70 percent more plaque in hard-toreach places than manual brushes. Or, try the Arm & Hammer(r) Spinbrush(r) Pro Whitening tooth-

brush, which features an innovative whitening bristle system that delivers clinically whiter teeth in 14 days.* Both brushes have a manufacturer suggested retail price of around $8 or $9. For maximum benefit, be sure to make it habit to brush for two minutes at least twice a day. Beyond choosing the right type of toothbrush to fight against cavities, remember these time-honored tips: • Limit the amount of sugary foods as they react with the bacteria on our teeth, forming acid that attacks tooth enamel. • Visit your dentist twice a year for professional teeth cleaning and a check-up. Be sure you go to your dentist in between check-ups if your teeth cause you pain. For more information and tips, visit www.spinbrush.com. — Family Features

Bone health critical issue for men with prostate cancer Prostate cancer is a serious issue for men, with one in six diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime. However, it is especially important for African-American men, who have a one in five chance of being diagnosed, which is the highest incident rate than any other group in the U.S. A recent survey of 90 men showed that men with prostate cancer aren’t thinking about a potentially serious health concern that nearly all patients with advanced disease will experience bone problems. “Prostate cancer is a health concern that all men should be aware of, including African-American men who are at higher risk for this disease,” said Dr. Kris Gaston, urologist and clinical assistant professor of surgery/urology at the University of North Carolina. “I treat many of these men who are unaware of their risk of prostate cancer and

are often diagnosed at later stages of the disease.” When an African-American man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, he often has a more advanced level of the disease. In fact, a study looking at how prostate cancer can spread to other parts of the body found that African-American men were more likely than Caucasian men to have widespread disease with pain in their bones and had lower physical activity status. These results may be because African-American men are less likely to get tested for prostate cancer. However, there are ways for African-American men to protect themselves. It is important for men to look out for prostate cancer early by speaking with their physicians about the signs and symptoms of the disease. Bone health is a critical, yet often under-recognized facet of prostate cancer. In early stages of prostate

In fact, roughly 75 percent of patients with advanced prostate cancer and approximately 90 percent of patients with castrate-resistant prostate cancer will develop bone metastases.

Finding your fitness motivation Even the most dedicated exercise enthusiast can hit a workout rut, but there are a few ways you can stay motivated, whether it’s adding a new class into your routine or ensuring you’re outfitted in the right gear. Read on for the latest trends in staying on track: 1. Set goals, track progress – One of the best ways to stay motivated is to set goals, track progress, and share results. A great way to keep your goals and successes top of mind is keeping a visual chart on your fridge or bedroom wall. Not only will you feel accomplished when you check off the days you worked out, but it is also an easy way to track your progress and celebrate milestones. 2. Add variety – One

reason people tend to quit an exercise program is boredom, so make sure you are challenging yourself. A great way to do so is mixing up your routine with the latest fitness workouts like TRX Suspension Training or Crossfit. Not only does a varied workout regimen prevent boredom, it also ensures you’re working different muscles and areas of your body. And speaking of mixing it up, downloading a new playlist can give you the right heart-thumping boost to keep your energy levels up. 3. Buddy up – Another way to combat boredom is working out with a friend. Scheduling a workout in advance ensures you’re more likely to stick to your fitness commitments. As the

old adage says, time passes much more quickly when you’re having fun. 4. Get the right gear – Whether you’re a seasoned fitness pro, or you’re just starting a new regimen, it’s important to sport the right apparel to keep you looking and feeling your best. For women, this means finding the perfect the sports bra. “There really is no getting around it,” states LaJean Lawson, Ph.D. and Champion’s sports bra expert. “Having the right sports bra is key to fitness success!

finds the right sports bra for your active lifestyle, a Blog with healthy living tips, even a Bra Registry that will remind you when it’s time for a new sports bra. 5. Reward yourself – It’s important to reward yourself when you reach milestones – both big and small. In fact, if you set only major goals, you’re more likely to get frustrated and quit before you make much progress. Instead, set small, achievable goals for specific time parameters, as well as an overall goal. Don’t let setbacks get you down, and make sure you celebrate each time you reach a new level with something special, such as an ice cream cone, trip to the movies, or a massage. — Family Features

Athletes provide tips to recover and refuel When it comes to creating a workout regimen, there are many resources with helpful tips covering everything from stretching to strength training. But what you do after your workout can make the difference in the way you feel and perform. A hard workout can leave your body depleted and running on empty. The correct post-workout nutrition can help replace what you’ve lost and help your body refuel for the next workout. “Lowfat chocolate milk delivers the right mix of nutrients athletes need to recover after strenuous exercise so they can get the most out of their next workout,” said sports dietitian Nancy Clark, MS RD CSSD. “Its effectiveness lies in its highquality protein and carbohydrates, to help repair and

refuel muscles, and fluids and electrolytes to replenish what’s lost in sweat. Chocolate milk is readily available, simple to grab-and-go, and tastes great. Hence, it is very popular with tired, hungry and thirsty athletes.”

Refueling methods Refueling with chocolate milk can play an important role during an athlete’s after-workout routine. It’s simple, effective and scientifically shown to help the body recover after strenuous activity. A recent study published in the journal “Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise” suggests that runners who recover with chocolate milk gain a performance edge. The study found that recreational runners who drank fat-free chocolate milk fol-

lowing strenuous exercise ran 23 percent longer and had a 38 percent increase in markers of muscle building, compared to periods when they drank a carbohydrateonly sports beverage containing the same amount of calories. In an effort to help educate athletes about proper recovery techniques, the REFUEL | got chocolate milk? campaign is heading to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Health and Fitness Expo, Marathon & Half Marathon from June 21 to June 22, 2012, to show runners that what they do after strenuous exercise can make a dramatic difference in how they feel and perform in their next race. Runners attending the Seattle Health and Fitness Expo can audition for a chance to join Team RE-

FUEL. If chosen to be a part of the team, athletes receive $500 in sponsorship, training gear and a chance to win a starring role in a “got chocolate milk?” ad, or an expense-paid trip to race at a Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in Europe. The campaign is backed by some of the world’s most successful athletes, including 2010 Ironman World Champion Mirinda Carfrae, USA Basketball Men’s National Team Member Carmelo Anthony, 12time swimming medalist Dara Torres, as well as USA Swimming Trainer, Director of Aquatic Performance at the University of California, Berkeley, Nick Folker.

ery benefits from proper post-workout nutrition, an athlete’s after-workout regimen should include active recovery techniques in the hours following intense exercise. Active recovery and rest days are linked to performance benefits. To help make your after routine more beneficial, Folker shares the following tips: Cool down. To help your body bounce back, muscles must cool down. Light active recovery after a race will increase circulation and get your body back on track. Stretch. Stretch directly after exercise (or after a foam roll session) while muscles are warm. Stretching increases blood flow to muscle fibers, stimulates Post-workout active recovery and helps prevent recovery techniques injury. In addition to recovMassage. A massage helps

release muscle tension and increases blood flow, which will help speed up the muscle repair process. Foam Roll. Foam rollers are like a self-massage and easy to travel with to training or competition. Foam rolling uses deep compression to help roll out muscle adhesions that develop over time, helping restore the muscle to its original length. The compression causes your nerves to relax - a myofascial release which loosens the muscle and increases blood flow, all of which help your body recover. Ice. Within two hours of a very strenuous workout, ice muscles to reduce postworkout inflammation and swelling and decrease muscle soreness. — Family Features

When was the last time you ate three meals in a day? What was the last snack you had? If you can answer the snack question faster than you can answer the meals question, it’s not surprising. Today’s on-the-go, 24/7 lifestyle has created a nation of snackers. In fact, about half the nation eats fewer than three meals in a day, according to a survey for EmeraldŽ Breakfast on the go!™ Blends. Instead, people average two meals and three snacks in a 24-hour period. And no matter how health-conscious people are, more than two-thirds (69 percent) of people are snack­ing on what they want vs. foods with the nutrients they need. The good news is, that if you do it right, snacking can help you satisfy your cravings and give your body what it needs.

Less pain. Faster recovery.

Snack attacks Snacks can help boost your energy in between meals and keep you from eating too much when you do sit down for those meals. But not everyone is snacking wisely. Nearly half (48 percent) of those surveyed said they would be more embarrassed to tell people what they snacked on during the last week than reveal how much they weigh. Banishing enjoyable snacks altogether, however, may just increase your cravings. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says it’s ok to give in to cravings when looking at the total diet or overall pattern of food eaten. The organiza­tion says all foods can fit into a healthy eating pattern if consumed in modera­tion with appropriate portion size and regular physical activity. Photos courtesy of Getty Images

Summer Health: Stop frequent heartburn Summer is here, which means it’s time to pack your bags for vacation, dust off your beach umbrella and fire up the grill. Unfortunately many people will not only feel the summer heat outside with friends, but also inside their chest. Summer is prime time for heartburn. Barbecue season is the time of the year when people experience frequent heartburn symptoms the most, according to a recent survey by Wakefield Research for P&G, which brings you Prilosec OTC(R). The survey revealed that many frequent heartburn sufferers - those who experience heartburn two or more days per week - are not treating symptoms as effectively as possible, and there is a general lack of

understanding about heartburn and available treatments. One of the top misconceptions is that all over-thecounter (OTC) heartburn treatments are the same. Although frequent heartburn symptoms can be reduced with antacids or H2 blockers, proton pump inhibitors are indicated specifically for frequent heartburn. There are important differences among the available therapies: • Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) treat frequent heartburn by shutting down many of the acid pumps in the stomach and stopping symptoms before they start. Effects can last 24 hours. • Histamine2 (H2) blockers partially block produc-

tion of acid in the stomach. The effect of H2 blockers generally lasts six to 12 hours. • Antacids neutralize existing stomach acid and provide relatively rapid but short-term relief of heartburn symptoms lasting one to three hours. Two myths many believe are that drinking milk can help relieve symptoms and that weight gain has no impact on frequent heartburn. In actuality, a glass of milk increases one’s acid production (like any food) and maintaining a healthy weight is one key to treating heartburn. Dr. Su Sachar, gastroenterologist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, says that sufferers do

not have to accept frequent heartburn as “normal.� “One way to treat frequent heartburn is to take a medication that can help block the acid that causes heartburn, so you don’t get it in the first place,� Dr. Sachar observed. “It’s possible that, while taking just one pill a day as directed, a 14day course of Prilosec OTC can control, and in many cases, eliminate frequent heartburn symptoms. Prilosec OTC may take one to four days for full effect and should not be taken for more than 14 days or more often than every four months unless directed by a doctor. It is not intended for immediate relief.� People can take measures to avoid heartburn symp-

toms this summer. Dr. Sachar offers the following tips for those suffering from frequent heartburn: • Get educated. One of the best defenses is to arm yourself with information. With all the over-the-counter medications available, my patients are often overwhelmed and don’t know what is right for them. Additionally, people often fall prey to the common myth that experiencing symptoms daily is normal, without realizing there are treatments available. The more you know about frequent heartburn, the better you will be able to treat it. • Talk to your doctor about the right treatment for you. Dr. Sachar recommends over-the-counter PPIs,

Greg has been specializing in dermatology for over 15 years and offers treatment of skin diseases, acne and the removal of skin cancers.

like Prilosec OTC because it’s possible with just one pill a day to block the acid and stop heartburn before it starts for a full 24 hours of zero heartburn. It’s possible while taking Prilosec OTC. Use as directed for 14 days to treat frequent heartburn. Do not take for more than 14 days or more often than every four months unless directed by a doctor. Not for immediate relief. • Quit smoking. Smoking relaxes the valve at the top of your stomach, allowing excess stomach acid to reflux into your esophagus.

Summer Health: Stop frequent heartburn Summer is here, which means it’s time to pack your bags for vacation, dust off your beach umbrella and fire up the grill. Unfortunately many people will not only feel the summer heat outside with friends, but also inside their chest. Summer is prime time for heartburn. Barbecue season is the time of the year when people experience frequent heartburn symptoms the most, according to a recent survey by Wakefield Research for P&G, which brings you Prilosec OTC(R). The survey revealed that many frequent heartburn sufferers - those who experience heartburn two or more days per week - are not treating symptoms as effectively as possible, and there is a general lack of

understanding about heartburn and available treatments. One of the top misconceptions is that all over-thecounter (OTC) heartburn treatments are the same. Although frequent heartburn symptoms can be reduced with antacids or H2 blockers, proton pump inhibitors are indicated specifically for frequent heartburn. There are important differences among the available therapies: • Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) treat frequent heartburn by shutting down many of the acid pumps in the stomach and stopping symptoms before they start. Effects can last 24 hours. • Histamine2 (H2) blockers partially block produc-

tion of acid in the stomach. The effect of H2 blockers generally lasts six to 12 hours. • Antacids neutralize existing stomach acid and provide relatively rapid but short-term relief of heartburn symptoms lasting one to three hours. Two myths many believe are that drinking milk can help relieve symptoms and that weight gain has no impact on frequent heartburn. In actuality, a glass of milk increases one’s acid production (like any food) and maintaining a healthy weight is one key to treating heartburn. Dr. Su Sachar, gastroenterologist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, says that sufferers do

not have to accept frequent heartburn as “normal.� “One way to treat frequent heartburn is to take a medication that can help block the acid that causes heartburn, so you don’t get it in the first place,� Dr. Sachar observed. “It’s possible that, while taking just one pill a day as directed, a 14day course of Prilosec OTC can control, and in many cases, eliminate frequent heartburn symptoms. Prilosec OTC may take one to four days for full effect and should not be taken for more than 14 days or more often than every four months unless directed by a doctor. It is not intended for immediate relief.� People can take measures to avoid heartburn symp-

toms this summer. Dr. Sachar offers the following tips for those suffering from frequent heartburn: • Get educated. One of the best defenses is to arm yourself with information. With all the over-the-counter medications available, my patients are often overwhelmed and don’t know what is right for them. Additionally, people often fall prey to the common myth that experiencing symptoms daily is normal, without realizing there are treatments available. The more you know about frequent heartburn, the better you will be able to treat it. • Talk to your doctor about the right treatment for you. Dr. Sachar recommends over-the-counter PPIs,

like Prilosec OTC because it’s possible with just one pill a day to block the acid and stop heartburn before it starts for a full 24 hours of zero heartburn. It’s possible while taking Prilosec OTC. Use as directed for 14 days to treat frequent heartburn. Do not take for more than 14 days or more often than every four months unless directed by a doctor. Not for immediate relief. • Quit smoking. Smoking relaxes the valve at the top of your stomach, allowing excess stomach acid to reflux into your esophagus.

When was the last time you ate three meals in a day? What was the last snack you had? If you can answer the snack question faster than you can answer the meals question, it’s not surprising. Today’s on-the-go, 24/7 lifestyle has created a nation of snackers. In fact, about half the nation eats fewer than three meals in a day, according to a survey for EmeraldŽ Breakfast on the go!™ Blends. Instead, people average two meals and three snacks in a 24-hour period. And no matter how health-conscious people are, more than two-thirds (69 percent) of people are snack­ing on what they want vs. foods with the nutrients they need. The good news is, that if you do it right, snacking can help you satisfy your cravings and give your body what it needs.

Less pain. Faster recovery.

Snack attacks Snacks can help boost your energy in between meals and keep you from eating too much when you do sit down for those meals. But not everyone is snacking wisely. Nearly half (48 percent) of those surveyed said they would be more embarrassed to tell people what they snacked on during the last week than reveal how much they weigh. Banishing enjoyable snacks altogether, however, may just increase your cravings. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says it’s ok to give in to cravings when looking at the total diet or overall pattern of food eaten. The organiza­tion says all foods can fit into a healthy eating pattern if consumed in modera­tion with appropriate portion size and regular physical activity. Photos courtesy of Getty Images

Athletes provide tips to recover and refuel When it comes to creating a workout regimen, there are many resources with helpful tips covering everything from stretching to strength training. But what you do after your workout can make the difference in the way you feel and perform. A hard workout can leave your body depleted and running on empty. The correct post-workout nutrition can help replace what you’ve lost and help your body refuel for the next workout. “Lowfat chocolate milk delivers the right mix of nutrients athletes need to recover after strenuous exercise so they can get the most out of their next workout,” said sports dietitian Nancy Clark, MS RD CSSD. “Its effectiveness lies in its highquality protein and carbohydrates, to help repair and

refuel muscles, and fluids and electrolytes to replenish what’s lost in sweat. Chocolate milk is readily available, simple to grab-and-go, and tastes great. Hence, it is very popular with tired, hungry and thirsty athletes.”

Refueling methods Refueling with chocolate milk can play an important role during an athlete’s after-workout routine. It’s simple, effective and scientifically shown to help the body recover after strenuous activity. A recent study published in the journal “Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise” suggests that runners who recover with chocolate milk gain a performance edge. The study found that recreational runners who drank fat-free chocolate milk fol-

lowing strenuous exercise ran 23 percent longer and had a 38 percent increase in markers of muscle building, compared to periods when they drank a carbohydrateonly sports beverage containing the same amount of calories. In an effort to help educate athletes about proper recovery techniques, the REFUEL | got chocolate milk? campaign is heading to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Health and Fitness Expo, Marathon & Half Marathon from June 21 to June 22, 2012, to show runners that what they do after strenuous exercise can make a dramatic difference in how they feel and perform in their next race. Runners attending the Seattle Health and Fitness Expo can audition for a chance to join Team RE-

FUEL. If chosen to be a part of the team, athletes receive $500 in sponsorship, training gear and a chance to win a starring role in a “got chocolate milk?” ad, or an expense-paid trip to race at a Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in Europe. The campaign is backed by some of the world’s most successful athletes, including 2010 Ironman World Champion Mirinda Carfrae, USA Basketball Men’s National Team Member Carmelo Anthony, 12time swimming medalist Dara Torres, as well as USA Swimming Trainer, Director of Aquatic Performance at the University of California, Berkeley, Nick Folker.

ery benefits from proper post-workout nutrition, an athlete’s after-workout regimen should include active recovery techniques in the hours following intense exercise. Active recovery and rest days are linked to performance benefits. To help make your after routine more beneficial, Folker shares the following tips: Cool down. To help your body bounce back, muscles must cool down. Light active recovery after a race will increase circulation and get your body back on track. Stretch. Stretch directly after exercise (or after a foam roll session) while muscles are warm. Stretching increases blood flow to muscle fibers, stimulates Post-workout active recovery and helps prevent recovery techniques injury. In addition to recovMassage. A massage helps

release muscle tension and increases blood flow, which will help speed up the muscle repair process. Foam Roll. Foam rollers are like a self-massage and easy to travel with to training or competition. Foam rolling uses deep compression to help roll out muscle adhesions that develop over time, helping restore the muscle to its original length. The compression causes your nerves to relax - a myofascial release which loosens the muscle and increases blood flow, all of which help your body recover. Ice. Within two hours of a very strenuous workout, ice muscles to reduce postworkout inflammation and swelling and decrease muscle soreness. — Family Features

Bone health critical issue for men with prostate cancer Prostate cancer is a serious issue for men, with one in six diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime. However, it is especially important for African-American men, who have a one in five chance of being diagnosed, which is the highest incident rate than any other group in the U.S. A recent survey of 90 men showed that men with prostate cancer aren’t thinking about a potentially serious health concern that nearly all patients with advanced disease will experience bone problems. “Prostate cancer is a health concern that all men should be aware of, including African-American men who are at higher risk for this disease,” said Dr. Kris Gaston, urologist and clinical assistant professor of surgery/urology at the University of North Carolina. “I treat many of these men who are unaware of their risk of prostate cancer and

are often diagnosed at later stages of the disease.” When an African-American man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, he often has a more advanced level of the disease. In fact, a study looking at how prostate cancer can spread to other parts of the body found that African-American men were more likely than Caucasian men to have widespread disease with pain in their bones and had lower physical activity status. These results may be because African-American men are less likely to get tested for prostate cancer. However, there are ways for African-American men to protect themselves. It is important for men to look out for prostate cancer early by speaking with their physicians about the signs and symptoms of the disease. Bone health is a critical, yet often under-recognized facet of prostate cancer. In early stages of prostate

lead to bone complications, such as fractures and spinal cord injury, which may require surgery or radiation. In fact, roughly 75 percent of patients with advanced prostate cancer and approximately 90 percent of patients with castrate-resistant prostate cancer will develop bone metastases. Yet, results from a recent survey showed that only seven percent of men with prostate cancer were familiar with the potential for bone complications from Photo courtesy ARA Content cancer spreading. “Cancer can have a seriA study looking at how prostate cancer can spread ous impact on a man’s bones to other parts of the body found that African-Amer- during his prostate cancer ican men were more likely than Caucasian men to journey.

Education and Support Network. “It’s important for all men to educate themselves and become aware of risk factors and ways to help protect their bones from the effects of cancer.” Talk to your doctor for more information. There is also an available resource, the “Bone Health in Focus” report, to help prostate cancer patients and their caregivers learn more about how cancer can affect a man’s bones. The report features valuable information - such as personal stories, tips, and survey results - that can assist men in their cancer journey.

Finding your fitness motivation Even the most dedicated exercise enthusiast can hit a workout rut, but there are a few ways you can stay motivated, whether it’s adding a new class into your routine or ensuring you’re outfitted in the right gear. Read on for the latest trends in staying on track: 1. Set goals, track progress – One of the best ways to stay motivated is to set goals, track progress, and share results. A great way to keep your goals and successes top of mind is keeping a visual chart on your fridge or bedroom wall. Not only will you feel accomplished when you check off the days you worked out, but it is also an easy way to track your progress and celebrate milestones. 2. Add variety – One

reason people tend to quit an exercise program is boredom, so make sure you are challenging yourself. A great way to do so is mixing up your routine with the latest fitness workouts like TRX Suspension Training or Crossfit. Not only does a varied workout regimen prevent boredom, it also ensures you’re working different muscles and areas of your body. And speaking of mixing it up, downloading a new playlist can give you the right heart-thumping boost to keep your energy levels up. 3. Buddy up – Another way to combat boredom is working out with a friend. Scheduling a workout in advance ensures you’re more likely to stick to your fitness commitments. As the

old adage says, time passes much more quickly when you’re having fun. 4. Get the right gear – Whether you’re a seasoned fitness pro, or you’re just starting a new regimen, it’s important to sport the right apparel to keep you looking and feeling your best. For women, this means finding the perfect the sports bra. “There really is no getting around it,” states LaJean Lawson, Ph.D. and Champion’s sports bra expert. “Having the right sports bra is key to fitness success!

finds the right sports bra for your active lifestyle, a Blog with healthy living tips, even a Bra Registry that will remind you when it’s time for a new sports bra. 5. Reward yourself – It’s important to reward yourself when you reach milestones – both big and small. In fact, if you set only major goals, you’re more likely to get frustrated and quit before you make much progress. Instead, set small, achievable goals for specific time parameters, as well as an overall goal. Don’t let setbacks get you down, and make sure you celebrate each time you reach a new level with something special, such as an ice cream cone, trip to the movies, or a massage. — Family Features

To fight cavities, arm yourself Want to employ an edge in the battle for great oral health? Start by arming yourself with the right weapon. Fighting cavities with a manual toothbrush is like a soldier racing into combat with just a slingshot. While the manual brush is effective, technological advances have made battery-powered toothbrushes an even better and more efficient way to fight the enemy. The truth is manual toothbrushes just can’t reach everything. In fact, despite vigorous brushing, you may still leave food and plaque behind when using a manual brush. The Arm & Hammer(r) Spinbrush(r) ProClean(r) toothbrush is an affordable and effective way to upgrade your brushing experience. The oscillating head and bristles removes up to 70 percent more plaque in hard-toreach places than manual brushes. Or, try the Arm & Hammer(r) Spinbrush(r) Pro Whitening tooth-

brush, which features an innovative whitening bristle system that delivers clinically whiter teeth in 14 days.* Both brushes have a manufacturer suggested retail price of around $8 or $9. For maximum benefit, be sure to make it habit to brush for two minutes at least twice a day. Beyond choosing the right type of toothbrush to fight against cavities, remember these time-honored tips: • Limit the amount of sugary foods as they react with the bacteria on our teeth, forming acid that attacks tooth enamel. • Visit your dentist twice a year for professional teeth cleaning and a check-up. Be sure you go to your dentist in between check-ups if your teeth cause you pain. For more information and tips, visit www.spinbrush.com. — Family Features
