I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
School is back in session and the routine is almost perfected. Except when mommy did not wash the perfect shirt for the perfect outfit the night before, of course. Other than that, we have an alarm that goes off 10 minutes before the bus and that is the sign for teeth and hair. We all run to the bathroom, grab our toothbrushes and I do their hair while they brush. When I get them on the bus, I always wish I had helped them do more. Like floss or rinse. Luckily, LISTERINE has an entire line of oral care products that I can put front and center that will help me remember to help them have better oral care!
One of the biggest challenges I have with my kids is flossing. I have bought those super cute kids single use tools and I have stood and helped floss three mouths with ample protest. Neither accomplish what I need them too. But LISTERINE has an AWESOME Unltraclean Access® Flosser that is long and easy to use. It is made for adults, yes, but when I gently use it with the kids, I get to reach the back teeth without having to jam my hand down their throat! I love it and have purchased a few extra for me and for the other kids. I also got the replacement heads. Now that I have made it a point to floss them almost daily, I do it at night before bed and can get all three done in a matter of minutes!
When added to brushing afterwards and also using the kid friendly LISTERINE Smart Rinse – we have Barbie Fab BubbleGum flavored, I feel like I am at least sending the kids to bed with the best oral care I can provide! The routine has been working as all three went to the dentist a few months ago and got clean bills of health!
As for me, my largest challenge is just taking the time to make sure I am following the best routine possible. I have dental insurance but, unfortunately, the dentist in my area moved and the next closest is, literally, in another city. So I have to wait for the renewal period in November to change plans and get dental care again. In the meantime, I have to be very vigilant about brushing a few times a day, flossing every day and using LISTERINE HealthyWhite to make sure my smile stays as healthy as possible. I love the flavor of the HealthyWhite and have noticed that my smile seems brighter. Since I drink coffee and tea all day every day, white teeth are a challenge. So far, so good!
With the variety of flosses, the ease of use of the LISTERINE POCKETPAKS and the nice smooth flavor of the rinses, the kids and I have all the tools we need to care for our whole mouth! Instilling good habits early is important! LISTERINE helps in all areas!
How do you help you kids take better care of their mouths? I would love to hear any tips!
