Ever since starting my journey through the dental implant process, my oral care has become increasingly more important. Sure, I brush twice a day and my dentist finally scared me into becoming a regular flosser. There’s always room for improvement, though. That’s why I’m kicking off the new year and keeping things fresh around here with LISTERINE® mouthwash.
I’m sure you’ve heard before that it takes twenty one days to form a habit. That’s three whole weeks of commitment to make a change in your daily routine or lifestyle. With January upon us and in the spirit of starting it on a (literal) fresh slate, I’m committing to incorporating LISTERINE® Ultraclean® Arctic Mint® into my morning and nighttime oral care routines. That’s twenty one days of getting my swish on for thirty seconds, both in the morning and at night.
The LISTERINE® brand team is going to help me take my mouth care to the next level this year. All I have to do is pour, swish, and repeat for twenty-one days so it becomes a habit that I can keep up with. If you’re looking to keep up with your mouth care by incorporating LISTERINE® mouthwash into your own daily habits, you can do so in an exciting way for you and your mouth. The LISTERINE® brand team is hosting a 21 Day Challenge that’ll allow you to win daily prizes and a grand prize of *wait for it*…..$10,000! Now THAT’S something to smile about. $10k would be a pretty fresh way to kickoff the first part of 2020, don’t-cha think? There are multiple ways to enter into this challenge (and win yourself some cash), including a receipt upload functionality(upload photos of your receipts from your LISTERINE® mouthwash purchase from a mobile device or desktop for validation), answering the LISTERINE® brand’s daily trivia (each correct answer is one entry), and more.

My breath is one of those things that I’m constantly self-conscious about. I hate to say it, but the dental implant process hasn’t done me any favors there. I have to wear a clear retainer in between the phases of the entire process. Usually, if I’m out and about, I tend to eat with the retainer in, then rinse it out with water after the fact. That’s all good and well, but food tastes and smells have a tendency to linger—even more so when a retainer is packing it all in. To put it bluntly, it’s pretty darn gross.
While assuming that brushing and flossing should do the job, they don’t always leave my mouth feeling instantly fresh. Did you know that brushing can miss a billion germs? That’s billion with a “B.” Scary, right? When I say there’s always room for improvement with mouth care, I mean it.
LISTERINE® Ultraclean® Arctic Mint® mouthwash kicks germs to the curb and freshens up my mouth in just thirty seconds. My favorite part is that I can even multitask (wipe down the counter, brush out my retainer, etc.) while I swish away. I can leave my bathroom saying “ahhhhhh” without worrying about nasty germs or lingering bad breath.
