A Healthy New Year Starts with a Healthy Mouth

Plackers to give away 10,000 bags of dental flossers to jump-start resolutions

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Reducing stress, developing healthy habits and saving money are among the top ten New Year's resolutions for 2011, according to the U.S. Government's Office of Citizen Services and Communications, but less than 50 percent of Americans will maintain those resolutions beyond six months.

While many consumers focus on weight loss as part of their healthy goals, good dental hygiene is an important aspect of healthy living that may affect cardiovascular and other health conditions over the long term.  To help consumers keep resolutions to maintain healthier lifestyles, Plackers, a leading brand of consumer oral care products, is giving away 10,000 packages of its popular Micro Mint dental flossers.  The first 10,000 people to visit www.Plackers.com/NewYear and complete the online request form will receive a 36-count bag of Plackers Micro Mint dental flossers absolutely free.

To help maintain healthy teeth and gums between trips to the dentist, Plackers offers some sensible oral hygiene tips:

  • Floss before brushing so dislodged plaque and food can be brushed away.
  • Floss at least once a day to help remove plaque and food particles - brushing alone may not be enough to help prevent tooth decay.
  • Brush the tongue to help combat bad breath and remove bacteria from inside the mouth.
  • If brushing and flossing after eating isn't possible, rinsing the mouth with water also helps.

"Plackers is committed to increasing awareness about the importance of oral health, as well as in developing healthy habits for people of all ages through regular flossing, brushing, and daily dental care routines," said Tom Barman, Director of Marketing for Plackers. "The goal of this special limited offer is to help individuals start the New Year off right with good dental hygiene."

Consumers can go to www.Plackers.com/NewYear to get their free Micro Mint flossers beginning today.
