Listerine Oral Care Challenge blog tour

My family had the great opportunity to participate in the Listerine Oral Care Challenge. We started our challenge on the 1st of December (see earlier post) so we're almost 4 weeks into it and I wanted to share our experiences with you all.

The kit we received included a lot of really fun things, like Reach Barbie, Phineas & Ferb and Batman toothbrushes, Listerine Barbie/Batman Smart and Anticavity Fluoride rinse, Reach Total Care mint floss and Listerine mouthwashes and toothbrushes for adults.
Our task was to brush, floss and rinse twice a day (which we were pretty much already doing, except for the flossing part).
The kids each chose their character toothbrush and rinse, and off we went with the whole family.
I think from all of us, my youngest Abby enjoyed the routine the most as she could use her Barbie toothbrush and rinse. She got a Barbie house for Christmas so this all fitted right in! :-)

My husband prefers the Coolmint Listerine Antiseptic mouthwash, I prefer the less intense (zero alcohol) Total Care Zero mouthwash.

Did you know that despite parents' best efforts, 50% of children will have a cavity or filling between the ages of 5 and 9?
Candy and soda are the main culprits. However, fruit juice and milk can also be the source of cavities.
We had my son's dentist appointment early this morning (had to be there at 8) and he has NO cavities whatsoever. Very good news for him as he sometimes "forgets" what 2 minutes of brushing is like :-)
The younger your kids are, the harder it seems to be to keep your kids engaged long enough to brush, rinse and floss their teeth. But I have to say that having mouthwash and toothbrushes with characters definitely helps!
You should go check out the Listerine website, it has lots of very useful information on there and they always have offers on the site.

I've had gingivitis before and have been working real hard to improve the condition of my gums and it's paying off as my gums bleed less and less and the dentist actually has seen a huge improvement!
