Everyone knows we have certain things we need to do as we get older to keep ourselves healthy. This includes caring for not only our teeth but our general oral care. In this type of economy, people sometimes tend to put off and frequently neglect this area of their health. What a lot of people don't realize is that the rest of your bodies health is directly linked to your oral health. I know this personally.
Now coming from a family in dentistry, I already knew that but that doesn't mean I don't need a friendly little reminder every once in a while. What most people don't realize is that brushing actually misses 75% of your mouth. The boys and I brush our teeth together all the time. Declan loves to and in fact bugs me most days once an hour to brush his. As parent, I try to set that example for my children.
Once they become young adults, it is going to be a lot harder to teach them about this importance or set any examples if my teeth are rotting and terrible!! I was recently contacted by Listerine to complete a review of their product line and join in on their 21-Day Challenge. If you are interested in taking the same challenge I just did, you can challenge yourself and possibly win prizes including a Fitbit®, a $100 Container Store® Gift Card, Amazon Fire TV, and more!
We decided to do this as a family and I could not be more excited to share our results with you! Because we already used a variety of products from Listerine, the challenge wasn't too difficult, it was just getting everyone into the same habits. Dane (my pickiest about oral health), has become extremely particular about his Smart Rinse. With an easy squeeze the amount is premeasured for kiddos and I've definitely noticed less of the gross little boy breath since he started the challenge.
Kevin and I have both noticed a HUGE difference in the coffee stains especially with our challenge. I've noticed a lot less sensitivity myself and my gums have completely stopped bleeding when brushing now that I am using Listerine twice a day. I even love that this has helped curbed my late night appetite helping me along with my diet as well.
Alana has always struggled with the color of her teeth since the she was younger as they've always been a natural yellow color. Right away she mentioned how easy it was to start the new habits. We were pretty impressed with the results after only a few days and now after the full 28 days, you can clearly see a difference in her mouth.
I received LISTERINE® Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in the 21-Day Challenge. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.*Read my Disclosure
