To help families encourage good dental hygiene, LISTERINE® is promoting an “Oral Care Challenge” for families to take on this year. To complete the challenge, kids, alongside their parents, have to brush, floss and rinse every day, twice a day for three weeks—a key step in building a strong oral care foundation.
To help facilitate the challenge, I received an amazing Oral Care Kit with the following products:
REACH Toothbrushes featuring Batman, Barbie, and Phineas & Ferb (for ages 3+) featuring soft bristles, small head sizes, and ergonomic handles designed with little mouths and hands in mind.
LISTERINE Smart Rinse featuring Mint Shield, Barbie, & Phineas & Ferb (ages 6+) anticavity fluoride rinse that protects teeth against cavities and cleans the mouth, strengthening teeth 99% better than brushing alone.
REACH Total Care + whitening toothbrush designed to whiten teeth by removing stains using exclusive Calcium Carbonate Micrawhitening bristles, features a tongue cleaner, an angled neck, and precision-grip handle with thumb hole.
REACH Total Care multi-action toothbrush designed to remove 90% of plaque, featuring a tongue cleaner, angled neck, and precision-grip handle and thumb hole.
REACH Total Care Plus Whitening Floss designed for superior plaque removal and whitening.
REACH Access Flosser makes flossing as easy as brushing, is designed to easily reach back teeth and help freshen breath, and has a flexible handle that helps get to places that are hard to reach.
LISTERINE Total Care Zero complete fluoride mouthwash with less intensity and no alcohol.
LISTERINE Antiseptic proven to kill missions of germs that flossing may miss.
Results: The challenge was a great experience. I have been arguing with my children for over a year that they need to brush their teeth longer. Not once before this challenge did I think that brushing with them would be the answer (duh!). Jack and Bella actually would get excited to brush our teeth together...it was great! They naturally followed my lead and brushed their teeth as I did and, as a result, we all had shinier teeth! Jack and I also flossed daily and all three of us used the rinse. They love the rinse and it was a refreshing way to end the routine.
So, will we continue with the routine? Absolutely! I never thought oral health would be a family bonding opportunity, but I'll take it!
