Our Listerine Challenge


Taking care of my teeth hasn’t really been a huge challenge of me, or so I thought. I go to the dentist twice a year and brush twice a day.
Since our move I had to find a new dentist for myself and my children. In doing so I found a dentist that told me I had a ton of problems with my teeth and had to have some work done. I refuses the work and called my old dentist and they told me to get a second opinion. I am so glad I did!
I do not need to have all the things done, but the new dentist did tell me to I needed to floss everyday, instead of whenever I felt like it and he suggested am electric toothbrush.
My son has some issues about brushing his teeth and whenever he goes in they have to scrape off lots of tarter. He brushes but does not like to brush around his gums and there is always “stuff” left on his teeth.
So…I am excited to be taking the Listerine 21 Day Challenge. This is perfect because my son has an appointment at the end of February and I at the beginning of March.
We got this huge box from Listerine with all kinds of tools to help us with our challenge. My son and daughter are already claiming their toothbrushes!
Did you know that there are more germs in your mouth than people on Earth?  http://www.dentistrytoday.com/todays-dental-news/5596-mouth-contains-more-germs-than-total-number-of-people-on-earth That is just amazing!

What’s awesome is that for every person who signs up for the challenge on Facebook, the LISTERINE® Brand will contribute to Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America® program. Their goal is connecting up to 210,000 children with needed oral health services in 2013.

So what are you waiting for? Sign and take the challenge!!
