Get Ready! It's the Listerine Oral Care Challenge ~!

As I have mentioned before, getting my family to brush their teeth and floss twice a day is a challenge. Everyone just gets very lazy about it. The older girls have all had cavities, Nessa and Cici have even have two teeth pulled out because they were too damaged to save. No one really takes oral care seriously, instead they think that if they get cavities all you have to do is visit the dentist, and you are done. They don't realize that you oral health can affect your overall health and is a very serious. This is why I was so interested in being part of the Listerine Oral Care Challenge, this is something we all need as a family.

Angel, our little guy is probably the one that has the worst teeth. Him and his sister eat a lot of candy, they drink a lot of sweet drinks and most times will go to bed without brushing. Two months ago he was sent home from school because he complained of teeth pain and was taken immediately to the dentist where they pulled out one rotten baby tooth and told his mom he had 2 cavities. This was the day that I realized it was time to get tough, even if it's annoying to have to remind everyone to brush everyday.

Last Thursday we began the 3 week Listerine Oral Care Challenge. We received a goodie box full of Listerine products to use during this time. Our goal is to brush and floss and rinse for 3 weeks and see how much it can improve our family's oral health. The kids interest really perked up when they saw the items for them to use. They got Barbie, Phineas and Ferb and toothbrushes and Listerine Smart Rinses. This made them getting into the challenge more fun and we have been serious about doing it twice a day. Flossing and rinsing is new to the kids, so I am curious to see if we can get them into the hang of it by the end of the challenge. 

I will be back at the end to let you know how we did. Learn more about Listerine and all of their products by visiting them online.
