GLAXOSMITHKLINE (GSK), manufacturer of the Aquafresh toothpaste range, has launched its third oral health programme in Namibia, in its bid to promote being healthy through oral hygiene.
The event was held at the Theo Katjimune Primary school where the programme was officially launched with the aim of continuing to drive awareness on the need of pristine oral habits and hygiene as a prerequisite for good health.
The third offering of the programme centres around a two-fold approach; seeking to primarily educate and inform parents about the importance of adopting regular oral health habits within their families and secondly to encourage children to brush their teeth twice a day as well as adopting good lifelong habits that foster good health.
Amongst its various brands of toothpaste, GlaxoSmithKline manufactures the Aquafresh range which encompasses numerous toothpastes specifically formulated for children at various stages, from the first tooth to big teeth.
Aquafresh Big Teeth promotes strong teeth, healthy gums and fresh breath, with a sugar free bubble mint flavour to encourage regular brushing.
According the company, getting children into the good teeth brushing habit can never start too early.
“As children get older, [coupled with] changes in diet and other habits, means the need for protection. Around the ages of six, children’s adult teeth start coming through and when ‘big teeth’ arrive it’s time to move to a big tooth level of protection” GlaxoSmithKline said in statement.
