Listerine Smart Rinse Mint Shield Mouthwash
Advantages: Good value, safe fun to use
My son suffers with bad breath and you can smell it when he is talking to you so I had to find something that would help him due to I didn't want him picked on at school.
This product is for ages 6+ my son is only 5 but will be turning 6 in 2 months and due to he has lost 6 teeth and is growing his adult teeth through early I decided that he would be able to use this.
This is a 250ml bottle that is in an hour glass shape with a white cap to pour the liquid into. In the bottle is a tube that has a cap in the neck of the bottle that makes sure the liquid doesn't spill out. This tube is a brilliant invention because when you squeeze the bottle the mouthwash goes up the tube and fills the neck, it says to only fill it to the 10ml line and I have tested it and when you squeeze it it does only go to that line, so I have no concerns about my son squeezing too much out. It has the listerine name on the top which I have heard of but until now have never tried any of the products. In big letters it has Smart Rinse in a child friendly writing. It also has a picture of a tooth on the front.
This is a green liquid that smells minty. It looks like coloured water but is slightly thicker. It has a minty smell and a mild minty taste to it. It is alcohol and sugar free which is peace of mind for me. It states that it protects against cavities and cleans what brushing teeth misses. This is good because his big teeth are coming through he needs the extra protection and if he does miss some brushing his teeth this will get the bits he misses.
These are easy to understand, you use it twice a day after brushing. you squeeze the bottle and fill to the 10ml line. Pour the liquid into the cap then rinse around the mouth for 60 seconds then spit out the mouthwash. It states that you are to supervise your child which I did do in the begining now he knows how to do it and that he doesn't swallow it I am able to leave him to do himself. It also tells you that you must store it below 30 degrease ours is kept on the ledge away from the window.
Aqua, Sorbitol, aroma, phosphoric acid, suralose, cetylpyridinium chloride, sodium floride, menthol, disodium phosphat, cl 15985, cl42090 and contains fluoride.
These are like most products for instance, keep out of reach of children, Not to be used by children under the age of 6, do not use if the seal is broken and if you are using fluoride suppliements consult your dentist. I of course ignored one of the warnings due to my son not being 6 but made the judgement on he is 6 in 2 months and that he has 6 adult teeth coming through which is alot more than his 6 year old step brother.
At the top of the label it states that it contains fluoride which strenghtens teeth and reduces cavities by up to 40% more than brushing alone. This is very interesting information and I know that my childs teeth are being protected. It kills bad bacteria which is a major cause of plaque and gum disease, so I know my sons mouth is well protected. It goes around the whole mouth, reaching teeth and gums and tongue. It attract and tints the bits that brushing misses, showing your child the proof in the sink, we tested this and he saw lots of bubbles in the sink when he spit it out which of course I had to clean up.
I noticed a considerable change in my sons dental hygine. I have noticed he has fresh breath for most of the day, his teeth look cleaner and there is no bad smell when you are talking to him. He is alot happier knowing that his breath does not smell and enjoys using the mouth wash. He has also learnt alot about his teeth and that his mouth is full of bacteria that the mouthwash kills. I am happy with this product and think it is very safe for children to use. It is a good price at almost £2 and lasts my son almost 2 weeks usingit twice a day. I have noticed that when my step son comes to visit he is also using this because he has found it fun to squeeze the bottle and pour it into the cap. I think this has made brushing and looking after your teeth fun for children rarther than a chore. This can be bought from many places such as boots and Adsa.
This product is made by Johnson and Johnson ltd which is a well known name for childrens products which I think lets parents know that their children are in safe hands because they are a safe name for childrens products. It has a good expiry date that it can be used upto a year this will never last that long if regular use is made. It has all the addresses and web site address for customers who may have any questions or complaints about this product.
