Encouraging Healthy Habits With LISTERINE Oral Care Products
“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”
There is no denying that healthy habits can be instilled in our children if we begin encouraging and practicing them at a very young age. Getting into routine so that those healthy habits no longer become a chore or inconvenience, but simply something that your family does regularly without hesitation is a major goal of mine. Despite how diligent we are about making sure our children practice proper dental hygiene, it hasn’t always been a happy journey for us and there is always room for improvement. I never had problems with making sure my oldest kept up with brushing each morning and every evening, it was a simple routine that she neither fussed nor fretted over. Then came my strong will son whom insisted that he be the only one to put a toothbrush anywhere near his mouth. If he even caught a glimpse of me with his toothbrush, he automatically assumed I was coming to brush his teethe and would run off screaming and crying. I am happy to say that with much patience (and a few bribes here and there) night time brushing is no longer a nightmare and my son happily allows me to assist him in brushing his teeth. This has allowed us to explore other oral techniques, such as flossing and using mouthwash. I am so delighted to have had the opportunity to introduce a great collection of Listerine products to my family and integrate them into our daily routine.
Something that my husband and I don’t spend enough time doing is flossing and I really know that we should be doing it more frequently. The new LISTERINE Dental Floss is an amazing alternative to your traditional floss and overs a mouth full of refreshment each time you use it. In addition to removing plaque and food from your teeth, LISTERINE has several options of floss to meet your specific dental needs (whitening, sensitive gums, etc.) I am particularly fond of the LISTERINE sensitive gums floss, as I have found this to be an issue as I have gotten older.
I am so ecstatic about the LISTERINE ULTRACLEAN ACCESS Flosser and it is something that has helped me to make flossing part of my nightly bedtime routine. I have a very small mouth and I can still remember as a child and visiting the orthodontist, how much I dreaded it because I could never open my mouth wide enough for the dentist.I actually had my adenoids removed when I was a child and I remember when I woke up from the surgery, the device they had used to open my mouth actually tore the corners of the mouth. These bad memories and experiences have made flossing and sensitive issue for me and I have yet to find a solution for it… until now! the LISTERINE ULTRACLEAN ACCESS Flosser allows easy access to all my teeth for proper flossing and does not cause me any pain or discomfort!
My two oldest children have shown a strong interest recently in using mouth wash and have begun using it each night. LISTERINE SMART RINSE allows my four year old son to continue to be an independent brusher and I have the reassurance of knowing that the mouth wash is removing stuff he misses while brushing. My eight year old has become a pro at using the mouth wash and I am so happy to have had such a simple transition when it came to their nightly brushing routine. Such a great product that makes practicing and encouraging healthy oral habits easy and fun! On top of daily routines, don’t forget to schedule regular appointments with the Dentist in Mississauga to maintain those pearly whites
As a mom of three that is always on the go, you will more often than not find me with a cup of coffee in hand. This doesn’t always leave you with fresh clean breath and the LISTERINE POCKETPAKS are a lifesaver for times I run into an old friend or simply just want to have fresh breath for the sake of those around me!
