We presently have the prettiest mouths in the world thanks to this sponsored post by LISTERINE®. I know you may argue with me that your teeth are shiner, etc. but throw me a bone here. It’s been a tough couple of weeks and my parenting pride is withering.
So getting the terror twins to take care of their oral health feels like a HUGE win! I have convinced them (with the help of the LISTERINE® Frozen themed bottle) that all princesses have really lovely teeth and gums as pink as pearls.
Because while most of us think we are doing a good enough job, way more of us suffer from some form of oral disease than you would think. I inherited poor gums from my dad (thanks dad) and don’t want my kids to every have to spend the quality time with a pick that I have.
Plus when I instill a good oral health routine in my kids; I am helping their overall wellness. And then I feel way less guilty about all of those vegetables they didn’t eat at dinner.
LISTERINE® put together an awesome infographic that goes into details on how your health is affected by a poor dental routine. Along with some other interesting facts. Check it out!
Though I feel strongly that a dental health routine is most important because of the affect it has on your health, I am not afraid to appeal to vanity. Hence our prettiest mouthes in the world title. If you need a little convincing of your own (and your mom isn’t willing to sing Let it Go about plaque to you), check out these facts…
-More than 6 in 10 assume that people with oral health issues have other health issues (66%).
-More than 8 in 10 Americans feel oral health issues are embarrassing (85%), and more than 9 in
10 say that they feel better overall when their mouth feels clean (93%).
-3 in 4 Americans say the state of their mouth determines how they look and feel (77%), nearly
as much as their weight (78%).
