I have some embarrassing confessions to make today.
Like . . . I only brush my teeth once a day.
And . . . I never use mouthwash.
And . . . I floss once a week and bleed every time.
And . . . my tongue’s got this whitish coating on it. That never goes away.
I know. Gross. Imagine being my husband!
And my kids. You can imagine that if my habit is once a day, theirs is too. So I’m totally setting them up for bad oral health, just like me.
Should I even tell you how many crowns I’ve had in my life? 4. Fillings? Too many to count. And some of them have reached their “life span,” needing replacements over the last few years.
I’ve recently learned some grosser than gross, gross out facts. So gross, in fact, that I’m now going to do LISTERINE’S 21 day Challenge.
Want to be grossed out too?
Are you sure?
Brushing alone misses 75% of your mouth.
How about this one?
There are more germs in your mouth than there are people on Earth.
OMG. I’m sold. I’m totally taking the LISTERINE 21 Day Challenge.
I’m excited, but a little nervous too. This is a big change from my normally lazy, half-A’d daily teeth regime.
The cool thing about this challenge is that for every person who signs up for the challenge, LISTERINE will make a contribution to help Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America program, toward their goal of connecting 210,000 children with needed oral health services in 2013.
I like that.
So if I’m doing the challenge, I think you can too. Improve your own oral care and the oral health of a child by signing up at LISTERINE’S Facebook page.
Seems pretty easy and smart. Brushing, flossing, and using LISTERINE ULTRACLEAN twice a day?
So go sign up now and in a couple of weeks I’ll let you know how I’m doing.
