Listerine Smart Rinse Mint Shield
Advantages: A good price for a trusted brand, helps to get the bits that brushing misses
I try to encourage my kids to have a good dental hygeine routine, which includes eating the right food, avoiding sugary, acidic drinks and brushing twice per day at least. I wanted to take this further by introducing a good quality mouthwash, and using Listerene myself, I decided to try Smart Rinse for my daughter who is 7 years old.
I was a little concerned that she wouldn't be able to get the hang of the rinse and spitting out of the mouthwash, but she's fine with it and we have had no swallowing incidents to date.
Listerene Smart Rinse is available in most supermarkets and chemists and retails at aroung £1.89 for a 250ml bottle. It comes in two flavours, Berry Shield and Mild Mint. My daughter has tried both, but favours the mint. It is suitable for kids over the age of 6 years.
The bottle is a really great design, it is impossible to 'pour' too much mouthwash in to the lid as it has some type of valve that only allows so much to be squeezed into the neck of the bottle. Any extra just drains back in, so its easy to just dispense the correct 10ml amount.
The mouthwash contains fluoride which helps to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. It also kills bad bacteria, which is proved to be a the biggest cause of plaque and gum disease.
When rinsing with this mouthwash, it attracts the bits that brushing misses, and tints them a green colour, so that when your child spits it into the sink they can see the 'bits' they have missed.
I have found that my daughter takes more pride in her teeth now, and has a regular routine that she enjoys. She also reminds me to use my mouthwash too!
It has improved her teeth immensely, and that is not my opinion, it is that of the dentist. On second last visit, she had a few issues with her brushing and the dentist recommended this mouthwash, along with an electric toothbrush. On her return visit the dentist could see a huge improvement, and was happy with her progress.
I would recommend this to anyone with children, it encourages a good sense of oral hygeine at an early age. Once their 'big' teeth are in, they are the ones they need for life, so its good to encourage better tooth care from the outset.
Summary: A great mouthwash just for kids
