So it’s now 2014 and while I am not big on New Year’s Resolutions there are definitely some things I want to do differently this year. Chief among them is to instill a better oral care routine in myself and in Noah! My triplet pregnancy was not easy at all and as a result of extreme nausea and a complete water aversion for the first 20 weeks I drank a LOT of sugary drinks and my teeth have suffered.
Did you know that brushing misses 75% of your mouth? It’s important to have an oral care routine that includes a good mouthwash and floss! Listerine helps me do just that and I am embarking on a 21 day Listerine Oral Care Challenge along with my family! I headed to Target to buy the supplied I needed for the challenge:
• LISTERINE® Antiseptic
• LISTERINE® SMART RINSE®
• LISTERINE® WHITENING® Original Gel Fluoride Anticavity Toothpaste
• REACH® Floss
I currently brush my teeth twice a day but often skip the mouthwash and the flossing. During pregnancy anything more than a cursory tooth brushing made me throw up but now that the babies are here I need to get my oral care routine back on track! I got Noah to join the challenge with me and he was so excited to try the Smart Rinse! It helps that it is a fun blue color with is favorite Phineas and Ferb characters on the bottle!
I have noticed Noah’s teeth have a film on them and he is too young for plaque build up! As far as me, my gums are not in the best shape and I hope to rehabilitate them a little with this new oral care routine! I’ll be reporting back when the challenge is over with the results!
Please join me on the challenge! Taking the challenge can also help children in need. For every person who posts a “Swish Selfie” 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 needed oral health services in 2014. While you’re on the Listerine Facebook page you can can learn more about the challenge, the partnership with Oral Health America, and check out a roundup of the best “Swish Selfie” photos of the week.
