Did you know that brushing misses 75% of your mouth? I was amazed when I learned that! It actually explains a lot once you stop and think about it. My children go for dental check ups every 6 months and here lately each visit has revealed a cavity! It’s like pulling teeth to get them to brush well. They always want to brush the front teeth really quickly and be done. We have made two new rules in our home. #1 They have to brush first thing in the morning. #2 They have a 5 minute rule at night before bed. In that last 5 minutes they are expected to get water and brush their teeth!
My pocket book needs a relief from these dental bills. Besides the kids and their cavities, I am a major coffee drinker. I honestly brush my teeth 3-4 times some days. Coffee is so good but it leaves my mouth feeling.. well..yuck! In my quest for better dental hygiene for the whole family, I’ve decide to take the Listerine 21 Day Oral Care Challenge! You should join me. I am really excited to try this. Hey, maybe my husband will actually kiss me good-bye before he goes to work in the mornings. 😉
If you’re up for the Listerine 21 Day Challenge, here’s what you’ll need:
- LISTERINE® Antiseptic
- LISTERINE® SMART RINSE®
- LISTERINE® WHITENING® Original Gel Fluoride Anticavity Toothpaste
- REACH® Floss
You can find all of these items easily at Target.
Get involved in the challenge to improve your own oral care, and to help children in need! When you post a “Swish Selfies” to LISTERINE® Brand’s Facebook page, LISTERINE® Brand will make a $5.00 contribution to Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America® program, up to $85,000, toward their goal of connecting 210,000 children with oral health care services in 2014!! That is truly remarkable. I hope you will join us!
