Don’t get me wrong. I realize I’m not the only person on earth overly concerned with bad breath.
C’mon…You’ve done the the “Breath Test”, too. Ya know, just as you leave the house (or approach your destination). Cup your hands around your mouth. Blow into them. Check your breath. Hey, a’int no shame in that game! I mean, we’ve all met folks who don’t do the Breath Test, right? Shiver. Shudder. Yuck.
Having your Everyday Clean Routine down is important – especially during those times in life when it really counts – a job interview, a one-on-one meeting, an important speech, a social event. Especially during a romantic interlude.
When you hang out with someone who has bad breath or tooth decay, don’t you automatically think, “Woah. If he can’t even keep his mouth clean and fresh, what about the rest of his health and hygiene???
You’re not alone.
- More than 6 in 10 people (66%) assume that people with oral health issues have other health issues.
- While more than 8 in 10 people believe they have a healthy mouth (83%)1, the truth is that nearly all Americans suffer from some form of oral disease.“2
- Nearly all American adults over the age of 20 have had cavities at some point in their lives (91%) and one in four have untreated cavities (27%).2
Tooth decay and oral health are no joke. I don’t know about your household, but it took our eldest’s first cavity-and-filling episode (and sharing some pretty graphic images of advanced tooth decay!) before we convinced our kids to join our Clean Routine.
Now we brush/floss/rinse together at least twice per day. Why? We know LISTERINE® Antiseptic cleans virtually 100% of your mouth to achieve up to five times healthier gums in two weeks and up to nine times healthier gums in four weeks.3
Let’s be honest. Isn’t Parenting often about working “smarter, not harder”? Now our kids remind us, “Mommy! Daddy! Time for our ‘Happy Mouth Clean Routine’!”
Join us and do your best to prevent the oral care issues most Americans experience. Add LISTERINE® as part of your twice-daily oral care routine can help ensure your mouth is always on your side.
