It’s here the Listerine 21 day Challenge
Did you know that brushing alone misses 75% of your mouth?
I ran back into the bathroom re-brushed, flossed and rinsed my mouth out with mouthwash after I read that little fact. I must admit although I am totally obsessed with my oral care, I am also a slacker. I brush in the morning and then go on about my day. Floss if I feel like I have something in my teeth and brush in the evenings alternating between flossing and mouthwash. Now if you tell me you are an avid flosser, mouthwash user and amazing brusher kudos to you. But as I read statistics the amount of Americans who are making the best oral care decisions is less than half.
What is your daily oral hygiene routine?
This February my family and I are taking the Listerine 21 Day Challenge. We are making it a point to not rush through our daily oral routines. No more “hurry and brush your teeth!”, while we rush to get everyone out of the house. No more “did you brush your teeth?” as I am rushing the kids to bed. As mom, it is my responsibility to set a good example for my families hygiene habits. I am clearing my schedule and taking the steps to make sure everyone is flossing regularly and rinsing twice a day with Listerine mouthwash.
Do you know?
There are more germs in your mouth than there are people on earth!
Oral disease is now the most chronic childhood illness in the U.S.
Nearly half of American adults suffer from some form of periodontal (gum) disease and may not even know.
As many as 130 million Americans lack dental insurance with 15.4 million children.
