We’re back in the full swing of school now and, frankly, I embrace the familiarity and routine that a regular school schedule provides. We’re on fall break this week and it’s served as a reminder to schedule all of our fall wellness appointments before the holidays are here. Both my girls are both due for their 6-month dental care visits. Now that they are in 4th and 7th grade I don’t have to remind them to brush their teeth, but I do have to remind them to floss and to use dental rinse. In fact, even at my age I still need to focus more on the “extracurricular” oral care activities that really result in healthy teeth, from flossing to using a dental rinse.
LISTERINE sent us several great products to try out. My 9-year-old was especially excited to try out the LISTERINE Barbie theme Smart Rinse, and I really look forward to using the LISTERINE Healthy White Sodium Fluroide Anticavity Mouth Rinse. Let’s face it, brushing alone is not enough!
Here are details on some of the additional products we’re testing:
1. LISTERINE® HEALTHY WHITE™ Sodium Fluoride AntiCavity Mouth Rinse
I’ve never tried this product before, but I love gentle tooth whitening products as well as products that serve dual purpose. I’ve just started using this product and have made it part of my evening routine. Really love how fresh and clean it makes my mouth feel, not to mention the gentle mint flavor that’s not too overpowering.
- Peroxide-free for a gentler whitening experience
- Removes and prevents tough stains
- Restores enamel
- Safely whitens
- Formulated to whiten without irritation
- Kills bad breath germs
- Prevents cavities
- Helps prevent tooth decay
2. LISTERINE Gentle Gum Care Floss
I have a very small mouth and it can sometimes be difficult to floss my back teeth well. I love that this floss is “springy” and gentle.
- Soft, springy and resilient dental floss removes plaque effectively.
- Cushioned design for sensitive gums
- Gentle cleaning at the gum-line
- Mint flavored
3. LISTERINE® POCKETPAKS®
These are fantastic and I was already familiar with them. I work for a marketing agency and they are just the right size to toss into my purse or keep in my desk drawer. They are perfect to refresh your mouth after your morning coffee, before a client meeting, or after lunch. LISTERINE POCKETPAKS are available in several flavors…I love Cool Mint.
Good parenting and routine go hand in hand. The Listerine YouTube Channel features a fun America’s Healthiest Heroes channel that highlights parents who encourage positive and healthy habits in their home. Here’s a fun video from actor and fellow parent of two daughters Ian Ziering (of Beverly Hills 90210 fame) showcasing parents who have a humorous take on encouraging their kids to do their chores.

Instilling good oral care habits while the kids are young is important and you’re also never too old to introduce new products into your oral care routine.
