Back-to-school season marks the beginning of new routines and the opportunity to teach new, healthy habits, like an oral care routine. While brushing your teeth is an important habit, brushing alone misses 75 percent of your mouth!
Daily flossing and rinsing with a fluoridated mouthrinse, like Listerine Smart Rinse, are essential in keeping kids smiles bright, beaming and healthy. Providing 12-hour cavity protection, Listerine Smart Rinse strengthens teeth 99 percent better than brushing alone.
My kiddos were sent some of the Listerine Smart Rinse to review and they loved that it was a pink. It also stated good and is a fun way to reward them for brushing for the entire two minutes. It’s a fun way to also end the brushing routine of ours!
I know it can be a struggle to get your kids caring about their teeth, so pediatric dentist and member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Kaneta Lott, has several tips and tricks to get children of all ages invested in their oral care and taking care:
- Show, don’t tell: Share the brushing, flossing and rinsing experience with your children as they are more likely to imitate behavior they see adults doing.
- Make oral care fun: Turn flossing into a funny-face contest or brushing into a game of Simon says.
- Reward healthy behavior: Offer rewards for achieving brushing, flossing and rinsing goals with stickers or prizes who doesn’t love some praise every now and then?
One winner will receive TWO bottles of Listerine Smart Rinse.
