I participated in this sponsored campaign for One2One Network. I received monetary compensation and product to facilitate my post, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Lately I’ve been paying more attention to good oral hygiene. Jackson gets his top braces off today…phase one of many (pricey!) treatments down the road to correct his bite/straighten his teeth. Monthly visits with him to his orthodontist have made me more aware of how just brushing in the morning and evening isn’t enough to take care of my teeth.
I should have had braces when I was young. I have a very crowded top row of teeth and if I don’t floss, food can get easily trapped in those tight spaces. I admit I’ve been a bit of slacker in the flossing department.
Until the last couple of weeks.
Oral-B made it easy. They gave me a bottle of Scope Dual-Blast rinse, a package of Oral-B Glide Floss, Crest Complete Multi-Benefit toothpaste and a shiny, new Oral-B toothbrush. So I made a promise to myself that I would not only brush, but also floss AND rinse with mouthwash every day. It has been a big difference in how my mouth and teeth look and feel.
Not all floss is created equally and because of how close together some of my teeth are, some floss literally comes undone when I try to floss. Oral-B Glide Floss promises to slide 50 percent more easily than other leading brands which I found it to be true…no broken and frayed floss!
Now I carry a package of floss in my purse because when I’m out and about and have a meal, I want to make sure nothing is left behind and protect my teeth against cavities and bad breath. Because at my age, cavities usually lead to crowns which lead to even more expensive and painful and anxiety filled dentist visits.
Check out my floss face. I don’t look glamourous but I’m stopping the cycle, ya’ll! Bonus – I’m setting a better example for my kids. Jackson actually asked me if he could borrow my mouthwash and floss last night. He asked me!!
