Our Oral Care Pre-Challenge with Listerine + Reach
Did you know that brushing alone misses 75% of your mouth? Or that 50% of children will have a cavity or filling between the ages of five and nine? I am a numbers person and when I see statistics like that it gets my attention. It really got my attention when it involved my children and their teeth. It scares me to think that they may have issues with cavities. I, like any parent, want my children to have great teeth as I know that it not affects their confidence and appearance, but it also has a lot to do with their health. Encouraging better oral health is something my husband and I are both going to be more consistent on because our children's oral health is very important to us, as is our own.
Lucky for us after I read these statistics I was given the opportunity for my family to participate the Listerine and Reach Healthy Habits for a Lifetime Oral Care Challenge. We were provided with a nice selection of products from Listerine and Reach to help us with the challenge. This challenge was developed in order to encourage Americans to adopt healthy behaviors that lead to a healthier lifestyle. During this challenge my family is re-evaluating our oral care habits. It is a three week challenge where we are brushing, flossing and rinsing twice every day. We've really been working with our 19 month old to get him into the habit of brushing his teeth so this is a great challenge for our whole family so that he can see all of us working on our oral care!
I'm excited about this challenge and about getting my children more excited and into a routine of brushing, flossing and rinsing daily! We have always encouraged brushing, but after learning about how much is missed with just brushing I'll definitely be pushing for not only brushing, but flossing and rinsing twice a day! Won't you join my family on this challenge? Encourage your family to brush, floss and rinse twice a day for three weeks and beyond! You'll be happy you did!
