The challenge was to make sure we were practicing good dental hygiene habits and I think we already were. I’m probably the worse one in the family when it comes to brushing in the morning but if I make myself do it the same time the kids do then we all have brushed teeth. Just to make sure you remember the challenge Listerine gave us here it is again:
To help encourage kids to adopt healthy oral care behaviors, the makers of LISTERINE® SMART RINSE® are asking you and your family to re-evaluate your oral care habits and learn why taking a few extra minutes a day for a complete oral care routine that includes brushing, flossing and rinsing is so important. To complete the challenge, you and your family just need to brush, floss and rinse every day, twice a day for three weeks.
Oral disease has become the number one chronic childhood illness in the U.S. – and just in time to help combat the Halloween sugar rush, the makers of LISTERINE® SMART RINSE® are teaming up with non-profit organization, National Children’s Oral Health Foundation, known as America’s ToothFairy®, for the third year to teach kids how to be Sweet Smart when it comes to protecting their teeth each day.
And here is our process in the morning:
for 2 minutes
for 30 seconds
My kids have a few issues using the bottle of Listerine mouth rinse, because of the size or something. So we measure it and then we pour it into a cup and then they can put it in their mouth without swallowing it or choking on it. Might be we just need more practice but this also doesn’t spread germs on the bottle. They love using the LISTERINE SMART RINSE and so do we as parents. When they spit they can see what they got out of their mouth that was gross and sometimes we can even see on their teeth colored spots that they missed. It’s helping us let them be independent and confident brushers, while also letting us know that they are indeed getting their teeth clean. And like I said, my habits have changed too. I’m back to the way I used to be where I brush in the morning and at night and also before I leave the house. And at night we do all our flossing as well as the same steps Zoe illustrated above.
