Preventing cavities with LISTERINE® SMARTRINSE #besweetsmart

We’ve taught our kids the importance of oral health care with LISTERINE® SMARTRINSE, as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #besweetsmart. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own. 

Preventing the DREADED cavity! Trust me, it’s definitely worth the extra effort to get your kids into a super healthy oral care routine. Some kids are more prone to cavities than others too – even in the same household with healthy eating habits and no juice drinkers. My daughter has had ZERO cavities in almost 9 years, but when my 3 year old suddenly had 8 — yes 8 cavities, we were ALL IN when it came to oral care habits.

At the end of the day, it’s really about TEACHING our kids the right routine and letting it become their habit.

With Halloween around the corner and all those sweets that come with it, now is definitely the time to start tackling a really health dental care routine if you aren’t already with your children.

What your oral care routine for the kids?

LISTERINE® SMARTRINSE is our #1 Healthy Habit to prevent cavities

Our pediatric dentist immediately had us start using Listerine SmartRinse with both of our kids. This offers some fantastic cavity protection so she told us to use it every night before bed after the kids brush their teeth. The idea was that using this special mouthwash would help the kids reach places their brushing could not and of course help us prevent cavities too.

Be Sweet Smart!

Oral Care Routine for Kids Preventing Cavities with LISTERINE® SMARTRINSE

Luckily, thanks to our dedicated bedtime oral care routine, Kyle hasn’t had another cavity in almost 4 years. Thank goodness! I’m sure his celiac disease was a contributing factor, as he was undiagnosed at that point, but still, we are sticking with these healthy habits for the ENTIRE family now.


4 Step Oral Care Routine for Kids

This is what we do every night. And it’s super simple and total habit for the kids now too. Hooray!

1. Tooth Timer set

2. Brush until the Tooth Timer ends

3. Use Anticavity Mouthwash Rinse – LISTERINE® SMARTRINSE

4. Floss with either dental floss or kids pick dental floss as this can be easier for younger kids if needed



You can tell Kyle and Kenzie have been using the Listerine Smart Rinse long before we were sent these samples…… Take a peek at Kyle’s 6 year old style mouthwash bottle!!!! Yes he is a messy little boy 🙂

  1. So very important to get into the habit of brushing well. Especially as they get older and have braces that can trap food debris.
    Great information!
