They say the older you get, the faster time passes. Whomever said that couldn’t be more right. Especially the last couple of weeks since I started my 2015 LISTERINE® Challenge. Where did that time go?
I’m happy to report that I formed a new habit since I first wrote about starting my 2015 LISTERINE® Challenge – and a good habit at that! I have been rinsing day and night with my LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE®. After only two weeks, I’ve truly formed a new oral care habit. I know this because, after brushing my teeth now, I automatically reach for the LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE® without even thinking.
I admit, I’m still not a fan of the original flavour of LISTERINE® that my partner uses, however, the LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE® has, in my opinion, a very appealing minty flavour that leaves my mouth feeling so fresh and clean. And I mean clean! I love the way my mouth feels after rinsing with LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE®. Another reason I am a big fan of LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE® is because it’s not harsh like some mouthwashes I have tried in the past. It leaves my mouth feeling clean and tingly – without leaving my mouth and lips feeling like they are on fire. Yes, I want my mouthwash to kill the germs/bacteria that cause gum disease, but not burn my mouth!
Then there is the flossing. If you remember, I told you I’ve never been much of a flosser. Well, even that has changed. The flavoured floss makes flossing much more enjoyable (if you can call it that!), and I’m rather intrigued by the tiny flexible MICRO-GROOVES® of the LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE® floss. My old eyes can’t see the MICRO-GROOVES®, but my fingers can feel them! The quality of this floss is definitely better than what I usually get from my dentist (don’t tell him that!). I was amazed…no make that shocked…at what the floss dug out from between my teeth. As a result of the 2015 LISTERINE® Challenge, I’ve decided that flossing should be done daily – and not just after eating corn-on-the-cob!
I used to think that bleeding gums were a sign of brushing too hard, or in my case, flossing too hard when I actually did floss. Thanks to LISTERINE®, I now know it’s a sign of early gum disease. My gums are no longer bleeding when I floss. Maybe that’s because of my new oral health care routine? After all, LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE® kills 99.9% of germs that cause early gum disease and reverses early gum disease in just two weeks*!
My positive experience with the 2015 LISTERINE® Challenge makes me wish I had started this healthy oral care routine a long time ago. I never want to end up like others I know who have lost their teeth to gum disease, including my own parents. Both my mother and father have either a full or a partial plate in their mouths. Back when they were growing up, they did not have access to great products like LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE® to help keep their teeth and gums clean and healthy. From now on, I will continue to use LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE® so that I don’t one day end up with my partner having to leave a sign like this on my bathroom mirror!
