I am taking the 2015 LISTERINE® Challenge!

Do you think much about your oral health?

It was not until I was pregnant and felt the changes my gums and teeth were going through that I realized there was more to oral health than I knew. With each pregnancy my gums would bleed and my teeth would ache. So I started using mouth wash and watching what I ate. Certain foods seemed to help while others caused issues. But the mouth wash made my mouth feel clean and in no time the bleeding stopped. Little did I know that bleeding could have been a sign of something else.

I wake in the morning and brush my teeth. Mid day I usually brush again and then before bed. Mouthwash and flossing, even though I know it is important, is not a part of my routine. Until now. There are a lot of misconceptions about what makes a mouth healthy – how often should I brush or floss? Should I rinse too? While all of the above will help you maintain a healthier mouth, the LISTERINE® Challenge is all about the importance of rinsing.

The 2015 LISTERINE® Challenge!

The LISTERINE® Challenge is built upon the misconception that bleeding gums are a result of brushing too hard, when actually, bleeding gums are a sign of early gum disease that can be reversed with LISTERINE®.

Register online to begin the challenge. Then for 14 days rinse twice a day. Check In daily for your chance at prizes.

Canadians have the chance to win $20,000 and walk away with a healthier mouth from taking the challenge.

I hope my Canadian friends join me in taking this challenge. It would be great if one of you were to win. But with healthier oral health, we all win!

The LISTERINE® Challenge runs from January 27th , 2015 to July 15, 2015 and is only open to Canadian residents, no purchase necessary see full contest rules or details.
