Your Mouth Says A Lot About You… More Than You Think #Listerine


I received LISTERINE® Brand products from Johnson & Johnson Consumer, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in this LISTERINE® campaign. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.

Growing up, I had healthy teeth. Not a single cavity was to be had, until my children were born. Pregnancy ruined my perfect dental record and I’ve had to up my game to keep a healthy mouth.

As for my children, brushing their teeth twice a day is just as painful as pulling them. Knowing that poor oral hygiene can have such a big impact on our lives, in so many areas, I’m doing everything possible to teach my children the complete routine of brushing, flossing and rinsing.


I never realized how much the health of ones mouth could affect them. In a recent study done by LISTERINE®, there were some statistics that would even surprise you.

For example, did you know that more than 8 in 10 people believe they have a healthy mouth (83%), the truth is that nearly all Americans suffer from some form of oral disease.

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%). My first cavity? Came at the age of 27. I had a horrible gag reflex during my pregnancies and prevented proper brushing, so you can count me into that 83%. I had no clue that things were going downhill so fast.

Check out some of these survey findings, it’s actually pretty interesting!


Reading that really makes you want to up your game, right?

It all starts with having the proper oral products to take you through the entire brushing, flossing and rinsing process. This is why we have become a LISTERINE® family.

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.

    When did Listerine start making toothpaste? What a great idea and way past due. Also, I laughed at the stats on Chewing with your mouth open and relationships. Reply

    My biggest pet peeve is gross tongues. When I am talking to someone and their tongue looks like it hasn't been brushed in weeks? EWW.... I love listerine and try to teach my kids the importance of a healthy mouth. Reply

    I love Listerine. I use it every day. I actually tried it in high school when I ran out of another brand, and I never looked back. Reply
