My son and I took a Listerine oral care challenge earlier this year. We were encouraged to brush, floss and rinse our teeth consistently to encourage good oral care. It is now 6 months later and many of the good habits have stuck! My son loves brushing his teeth with the timer and actually waits for me to set it before he brushes (I think I need to get him a timer that he can operate so our mornings move faster) and he also rinses. We have both (I blame me) fallen short on the flossing. So, for the Sweet Smart Oral Care Challenge we are going to be focused on adding flossing to our regiment.
Since flossing is a once a day habit, adding it to the bedtime routine should be pretty easy. For Mekhi it will be a fun add on to what we already do before he goes to bed. The biggest challenge will actually be adding flossing to my personal routine. This has been a lifetime challenge. I have no problem brushing and rinsing but taking the time to floss has always been a pain. I think it stems from the fact that I have teeth that are very tight. In other words, the spaces between my teeth aren't very big. So, it takes a bit of maneuvering to floss.
But we are taking the challenge and by the end of the month I am sure that we will have successfully added flossing to our daily oral care!
