Oral care is so important, especially for kids to get into the routine of always doing it. In our family, everyone goes to the dentist every 6 months, no matter what, and we start early. By the time my kids are 2 years old, they’ve had their first dentist visit.
One aspect of oral care in our family I am working diligently to improve is flossing! Does any kid really like to floss? Really? I’m 30-something and even I don’t want to do it. We received a package in the mail from LISTERINE full of their floss samples, and let me tell you, trying a variety really helps make you want to floss.
I actually found a floss I love! For the past week, when it’s time to get ready for bed, I can’t wait to floss — which is unheard of for me. Every time I use it, I feel like I’ve just been to the dentist. I am loving the LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN® Floss. It stretches and flexes and has a hint of mint, too. With all my dental work as a teen, it makes getting into those hard to reach places so much easier. It also has MICRO-GROOVES® Technology which removes 2X more plaque than Glide® Mint Floss!
My tween and teen tried the different flosses and both found one they loved and have been using every day. My tween loved the LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN® ACCESS® Flosser. I actually found him today sitting in front of the television flossing! With its long, ergonomic handle and non-slip grip, it makes reaching way in the back so much easier for him.
Miss Em had braces back in middle school which left her with some white patches on her teeth. Now, she’s really wanting to whiten her smile, so she’s started using the LISTERINE® HEALTHYWHITE™ Floss. This one is like my fave in that it stretches and flexes and has the MICRO-GROOVES® Technology, but it also has a baking soda ingredient to remove stains.
She’s also using the new LISTERINE® HEALTHY WHITE™ GENTLE mouthwash to whiten her gorgeous smile, too. I like that it doesn’t contain peroxide, and it has fluoride to restore enamel. Having to wear retainers daily her mouth can get irritated, so I like that this mouthwash is gentle and non-irritating for her. Not only does it do all this, it also prevents bad breath (so important for teens!) and fights cavities, too!
Mr. E, my tween, loved that his mouthwash featured the Avengers. He is so into superheroes! He also really liked the minty flavor. I’ve caught him actually using this mouthwash multiple times a day! I’m hoping this keeps up!
