When asked to participate in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge, I didn’t hesitate to answer yes. Good oral healthcare for my family is important to me, but I must admit there are some areas where we can improve. We are all pretty good about brushing at least twice a day, but don’t floss or rinse regularly. I must admit that the kids take better care of their teeth than I do, thanks in part to constant harping from the adults in their lives. You know that old saying “Do as I say, not as I do.”? Well that doesn’t go over so well in my house, so I need to do a better job of leading by example when it comes to making oral health a priority.
Why should you participate in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge? Well, it’s quite simple actually. Commit to making oral health a priority for your family through just one additional minute of effort by brushing, flossing, and swishing with LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN® twice a day.
Did you know brushing alone misses 75% of your mouth? That’s right – and believe it or not, even if you brush twice a day, you’re likely missing a majority of your mouth, leaving plenty of room for germs to grow. But there is an answer… By using Listerine® Antiseptic mouthwash twice a day for 30 seconds, you can clean virtually 100 percent of your mouth. In fact, you can get:
- Up to 5 times healther gums in 2 weeks
- Up to 9 times healthier gums in 4 weeks
There’s another great reason why you should join my family in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge. While improving your oral care is reason enough to join the challenge, when you visit Listerine on Facebook and sign up for the challenge the LISTERINE® Brand will make a contribution to help Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America® program toward their goal of connecting 210,000 children with needed oral health services in 2013! There is even a fun reminder app in which you can adopt a “pet mouth” to help keep your family on track during the challenge.
Listerine sent my family a box of oral health products to get us started on the challenge, but these are all products that you can pick up at your local supermarket or drug store. I’m so excited for my family to have healthier smiles, in as little as 21 days of brushing, flossing, and rinsing twice daily.
Will you be taking the Listerine 21 Day Challenge with us? I’ll let you know how my family did in a few weeks!
