Our Healthy Dental Routine with LISTERINE! #MC

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

I can’t believe we’re already a month into the school year! Time just goes faster and faster and my boys get bigger and bigger! Gavin is in third grade this year and while he’s 8 years old he’s super excited that he has FINALLY lost a tooth! It has killed him to watch all his friends lose teeth and not have it happen to him! Now that is has it’s been a great way to revisit a great oral care routine.

Gavin lost his 1st tooth

Losing teeth is a great time to get your kids excited about oral care because they are really excited about their teeth. Most kids aren’t excited when you talk about the dentist but making sure you visit and get regular cleanings and x-rays twice a year is one of the most important ways to take care of your teeth but there are also things you should be doing on a daily basis too!


Our regular routine has been okay. I’m really good at making sure the boys all brush their teeth every morning and every night. We’ve also been longtime users of LISTERINE® SMART RINSE® since it provides 12-hour cavity protection in between brushings but I do know that they aren’t always the best at using it. We do sign up for the free fluoride treatments at school too. Where we struggle is with flossing.

LISTERINE Dental Care Products

Gavin has always struggled with flossing. My boys naturally have really tight teeth so it’s important that they make sure to get in there and get between every teeth to help prevent cavities. The dentist actually recommended the LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN® ACCESS® Flosser since it helps little hands reach the back of their mouth easier with its long, ergonomic handle and non-slip grip.


While I go over my boys dental routines it’s important that I follow my own lead and take good care of my own teeth! I’ve been slacking on flossing myself so I’ve been using LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN® Floss. Since it is a shred-resistant floss it stretches & flexes, and slides easily between teeth. I also slipped some LISTERINE® POCKETPAKS® in my purse so I’m never caught off guard and always have fresh breath! They are super small so I can even keep them in my pocket! They go to work fast and kill 99% of bad breath causing germs

I try to be a Healthy Habit Hero with my boys because once those adult teeth are in they have to last a lifetime! Learning how to properly take care of your teeth and caring for the whitest smile possible will help them when they are older and I can’t be there to remind them!

What healthy oral habits do you try to give your kids?


  1. I think I’ve scared my children into brushing by telling them about having a cavity filled! They are very diligent now.

  2. I love Listerine products for all of us, my mouth feels more clean when I use it.

  3. I thought my daughter was late with losing her first tooth at the end of 1st grade. Your poor son having to wait until 3rd grade! Glad it finally happened to him as I know how hard it is for them to watch their friends lose teeth, and nothing for them.

    We are a family of Listerine users and I try every week to get the girls into a routine by keeping Smart Rinse on hand. It’s challenging but eventually it’ll all be a good habit. I try to stress to them how important it is to take care of their permanent teeth so they can have them for a long time.

    Listerine has a great line up of products. I want to get the smart rinse for my 7 year old.

  5. My kids love having their own Listerine Smart Rinse in their bathroom. It’s definitely more fun for them to use.

  6. Stephanie says

    I love all the products listerine has.

  7. Diane says

    Listerine rinse is my go-to for good dental health. I encourage my son to use it too!

  8. Love Listerine! But I had no idea they had THIS many products! Wow!

  9. My kids know they must brush before school and before bed and if I catch them during with food in their teeth I get them then. My oldest LOVES mouth wash. The others it is all about the flavor and they like to pick their own toothpaste. For me, hehe I like the different flavor dental floss. I always encourage them.

  10. My kids have a very set routine for brushing their teeth. Thank goodness they finally make mouth wash flavors kids like otherwise it would be a battle.

  11. We are very strict on tooth brushing! With a family history of weak teeth, we are starting early!

  12. All we use in my house is Listerine! They are the best.

  13. I have always been a big fan of their products. 🙂
