You’ve heard of strength train­ing, weight train­ing and per­sonal train­ing. Keep­ing your body fit is great but what about your mouth? The health of your mouth is just as im­por­tant as the rest of your body. That’s why Col­gate has launched the Get Mouth Fit Cam­paign – and who bet­ter to help sup­port it than one of the fittest guys in the coun­try? Rugby cap­tain Kieran Read has worked hard at be­ing fit and healthy his en­tire life. He keeps his mouth fit too, us­ing Col­gate tooth­paste since he was a kid – and he still uses it today! “I brush twice a day with my Col­gate To­tal tooth­paste, my teeth need to be well looked af­ter,” says Kieran. “I’ve been told I need to floss a bit more so I’m work­ing on that too,” he adds with a laugh.

LOCK IN GOOD HABITS

Sim­ple daily brush­ing rou­tines, floss­ing, vis­its to the den­tist and re­plac­ing your tooth­brush reg­u­larly all add up to a health­ier mouth. With young kids, it’s im­por­tant to lock in those habits early on. “Fun tooth­brushes cer­tainly have worked for our kids,” says Kieran, “and also rou­tine, mak­ing sure we brush be­fore school and be­fore they go to bed.”

IM­PROVE YOUR SKILLS!

Brush­ing twice a day with Col­gate is much eas­ier than some of the fit­ness pro­grammes out there – and it can make such a dif­fer­ence to your life! So how good are your oral care skills? Take the Col­gate Get Mouth Fit test today! Visit www.get­mouth­fit.co.nz.
