I recently wrote about the 7 worst foods for your teeth and I must admit, every food listed happens to be a household favorite.
As much as I can get my kids on board with brushing, our twice yearly dental visits have become the stuff of dreaded legend and these lucky kids have never had a cavity! Did you know that 50 percent of kids will have a cavity or filling between 5 and 9 years old? Fifty percent, people!
Admittedly, I don’t supervise my kids’ teeth brushing as much as I probably ought to. I know they quite enjoy brushing with their character toothbrushes and yummy toothpaste, but I’m 99.9 percent sure they don’t brush long enough.
So what’s a mother to do, drop everything to ensure proper brushing duration? Probably, but brushing alone misses 75 percent of their mouths. That’s three-fourths! But have no fear, a fluoride rise such as Listerine® Smart Rinse® can offer extra protection against cavities!
Armed with their Listerine® Smart Rinse®, my kids sprung into action and let me tell you, oral care has never been so much fun around these parts. Check out our favorite rinse faces!
Do your kids rinse in addition to brushing and flossing?
I received products from Johnson & Johnson as part of my participation in the LISTERINE® Kids Cavity-Free School Year Program. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own. Click here to see more of the discussion.
