It can be easy to fall into the rut of not taking care of your teeth! I’m usually really good at brushing my teeth morning and night, but when it comes to flossing and rinsing with mouthwash, I tend to only do that near the time of my dentist appointments. I normally have one goal in mind. Don’t let my gums bleed when the hygienist flosses them for me at the dentist’s office. Now, that’s not the way I should be treating my teeth and that’s certainly not how I should be teaching my children to treat their teeth either.
That’s why, when our family was given the opportunity to join in on the 21 Day Listerine® Challenge, I was more than happy to sign us up! Not only do I need better oral health habits, but my kids do, too. After all, they say it takes 21 days to make a habit. While my teeth have been pretty healthy overall, at my most recent dentist appointments, they threatened that if I did not start flossing more often, they’re going to have to do several fillings between my teeth. I certainly want to avoid that, at all cost! Also, being pregnant, my gums are extra sensitive, so I’m looking forward to seeing how this 21 day challenge can help my sensitivity issues.
What I am Using During this 21 Day Challenge
I headed to Target and bought the following items:
LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash
LISTERINE® SMART RINSE® (for kids)
LISTERINE® WHITENING® Original Gel Fluoride Anticavity Toothpaste
My younger kids were most delighted when they found out that they have a special mouthwash for themselves, too!
