Clean

Dentists recommend brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day1 in order to keep your teeth healthy.

Fluoride, the active ingredient in toothpaste, is also strongly recommended to keep your teeth clean and strong.

Protect

Do you know that there are more than 500 species of bacteria actively thriving in your mouth at any given time2? Some of these bacteria can cause infections and diseases.

When you don’t brush your teeth properly, they form a glutinous, cloudy layer on the surface of your teeth, commonly known as plague. It can cause gum diseases and inflammation of arteries.

Keeping up good habits

If you have already mastered the right way to brush your teeth, keeping up the habit is key to maintaining your oral health.

The benefits of merely spending 4-5 minutes a day brushing your teeth are remarkable.

Scientific research has shown that brushing teeth on a regular basis can lower the chance of heart disease, strokes and diabetes3. Those 4-5 minutes really count in the long term!

So, how does regular brushing your teeth for maintaining oral health relate to revitalizing your car engine performance?

Shell, as your long term partner on the road, understands you do not see your car as merely a vehicle… but an extended self, a companion, and even a shelter when you are stressed out!

Just as not cleaning your teeth on a regular basis creates the conditions where plague starts building up along your gum line, if you don’t provide your car with good quality fuel, the power-robbing deposits will build up in your engine over time.
