Listerine and Reach Oral Care Challenge

I was so happy to be selected by Mom Central as one of the blogs to take part in the Oral Care Challenge by Listerine and Reach!

We all have had cavities in our family (except Abby that is). In the last couple of years we've focused more on dental care and so far so good, no more cavities. With Halloween just around the corner, we've already had discussions which candy we can keep and which we can't.
Also Lisa's Orthodontist each year gives the kids an option to turn in their candy ($1 per pound of candy turned in).

We've received all kinds of products to test out but I think the 2 coolest ones and most effective ones for the kids are the Agent Cool Blue and the Reach Access Flosser.
The Agent Cool Blue is a rinse the kids use before they brush. After the rinse is spit out, whatever blue is left will tell the kids where there's plaque left on their teeth. This one in particular is very effective with my son, who sometimes doesn't brush as good as he should.
We've had problems with flossing in our family. And not just the kids, us as parents haven't been really good at it. We were already using the Reach Flosser, it's just way easier to use and now we floss more often than before.

In the packet were a couple of Reach tooth-brushes the kids could select from.
Of course Jamie went for the Batman one and Lisa picked the Wonder grip one. The Wonder grip tooth-brushes are for "hard to reach places" and as Lisa has braces, this tooth-brush is a perfect match for her.

We were using fluoride tablets from the dentist but switched over to the Smart Rinse, Jamie picked the mint shield flavor and Lisa the berry shield.

Ian and myself used the cinnamint and icy mint total care mouthwash, I'm more in favor of the mint taste.
Now with all of these products was a chart where we put down stickers (in the shape of teeth) for every completed day. This chart made it way more fun for the kids to keep track.

Go check out the Listerine Kids website for some tips and tricks on how to make kids' oral care more fun and engaging.
Also here you will find some coupons you can use when buying Listerine Agent Cool Blue and Smart Rinse products!
