LISTERINE® and REACH® #HealthyHabits for a Lifetime Oral Care Challenge!

Did you know that 75% of all American adults have periodontal disease and do not even know it?
Did you know that there are billions of germs in our mouth, more than there are people on the earth? That’s a lot isn’t it?
Did you know that a third of the people in the US do not eat their favorite food or smile because of dental problems?
Did you know that 50% of American children will have a cavity between the ages of 5 and 9?
Did you know that 51 million hours of school are missed each year due to dental issues?

Pretty sobering, eh?

We have been struggling with a couple of our children’s oral care habits. No matter what we say nothing seems to get through to them, until recently one of my older daughters was explaining in detail what happened to teeth when the dirt, sugar and germs broke down the tooth. That particular child said, “Really?” Then took off to brush his teeth. A break through? Maybe, but I have my doubts so that is why we are participating in LISTERINE® and REACH® Healthy Habits for a Lifetime Oral Care Challenge!

    I’m neurotic about dental care, so I totally agree with the importance of flossing and brushing and rinsing.

  2. Lori says:

    Listerine and Reach are my favorites!!

  3. I’m really good at night, but I’m working on that morning routine! Adding the flossing and rinsing in the morning doesn’t come naturally, but I’m gaining on it!

  4. Lisa Davis says:

    Flossing and brushing are important, but so are regular visits to the dentist, which many families can’t afford and don’t have dental insurance.

  5. Krystal Ramirez says:

    It has been awhile ago but i read that ( I don’t remember exactly the percentage)almost of the germs in our bodies are from our mouth. Juice and anything that is acidic breaks down the enamel of a tooth and poor dental care can lead to heart attacks and other serious issues. I loved your review.

  7. Rebecca Parsons says:

    Total care is great. I love how the kids can get involved with the importance of brushing and flossing. It also makes them feel better when at the dentist they get praise.

  8. Ciara Allen says:

    Wow! I’m definitely impressed by your daughters knowledge impacted another child. I strive to make sure we do daily oral care here at home as well but its not always that easy.
