Take the LISTERINE Challenge and Win!

It wasn’t until adulthood that I started to really step up my oral care. You know, around the time that age creeps up and the teeth start showing signs of my coffee addiction love?

It was then that I realized just how precious teeth and gums are … ok and maybe parenthood taught me a little something about dental bills and how crucial it is to take care of the teeth and gums.

So, everyone in my family brushes their teeth at least twice per day, faithfully. We try and floss daily yet realistically, it’s more like every second day. Yet just in the last few months I’ve been flossing more and more, since as my dentist put it, ‘aging and teeth means more will get caught in there and you’ll have to floss more often‘. Ugh, there’s that ‘aging’ word again.

Speaking of the dentist, we also never miss our yearly visits either and if I had it my way {if I won a million dollars}, I’d go a lot more often than the minimum once per year. I am one that loves going to the dentist, there’s nothing better than a freshly polished mouth. There, that’s my honest confession for the week.

My name is Tammi and I love going to the dentist. 

One thing I’ve never gotten in the habit of, though, is mouth rinse. Truth be told, I always thought it was only needed as a breath freshener, perhaps for those that didn’t like mints or gum. I always assumed that if I didn’t need that mint-zap now and then, I could do without. Slap a huge #fail on that train of thought, since apparently mouthwash is an important step to proper oral hygiene, and I’ve totally been missing out.

I also used to think that bleeding gums was a result of brushing too hard, but it’s actually a sign of early gum disease that can be reversed with LISTERINE® in just two weeks*.

Yikes! OK, I obviously need to learn a thing or two, and I’m sure there’s lots of people out there that could use the reminder as well.

I’m taking the LISTERINE® Challenge! — For education, health and to save money in the long-haul!

To arm myself with the best gear for this challenge, LISTERINE® sent me some of their products to use and test along the way. I now have the latest flavours of dental floss {Mmm!}, and some LISTERINE® Total Care Antiseptic Mouthwash, which I’m eager to start adding into my daily oral routine.

Not only does LISTERINE® Total Care Antiseptic Mouthwash refresh the entire mouth but it also kills 99.9% of germs that cause early gum disease, prevents cavities, strengthens teeth, and restores minerals to the enamel. I’ll be using this daily for the next couple of weeks as part of the challenge.
