Keeping Smiles Healthy with Listerine Smart Rinse- Review and Giveaway *Closed*

Did you know that according to the US Department of Health and Human Services 50 percent of children will have a cavity or filling between the ages of five and nine? That is a pretty scary statistic when you think about it. As parents it is our job to ensure that our kids are taking proper oral care steps to ensure that they're not part of that 50%... That's where Listerine Smart Rinse comes in!

While brushing your teeth is an important habit, brushing alone misses 75 percent of your mouth! Daily flossing and rinsing with a fluoridated mouthrinse, like Listerine Smart Rinse, are essential in keeping kids’ smiles bright, beaming and healthy. Providing 12-hour cavity protection, Listerine Smart Rinse strengthens teeth 99 percent better than brushing alone.

Listerine Smart Rinse features your kids favorite characters like Phineas and Ferb and Barbie and comes in super yummy flavors including bubble gum and bubble blast. We were recently sent a bottle of Phineas and Ferb Listerine Smart Rinse to review and the characters alone are enough to make Brayden want to use it. Plus he says that it tastes great which is always a plus when it comes to kids!

Brayden has been using the Listerine Smart Rinse for a few weeks now and I feel great knowing that his teeth are cleaner and healthier than ever before. He's always been great at brushing his teeth but I think that little extra effort is going to make a huge difference in the long run.

Not all parents are as lucky as I am and some struggle with getting their kids to care about their teeth, so pediatric dentist and member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Kaneta Lott, has several tips and tricks to get children of all ages invested in their oral care and taking care:

  • Show, don’t tell: Share the brushing, flossing and rinsing experience with your children as they are more likely to imitate behavior they see adults doing.
  • Make oral care fun: Turn flossing into a funny-face contest or brushing into a game of “Simon says.”
  • Reward healthy behavior: Offer rewards for achieving brushing, flossing and rinsing goals with stickers or prizes…who doesn’t love some praise every now and then?
