LISTERINE®: Your Mouth's Germ Killing Guide
Did you know there are more bacteria in your mouth than there are people on earth? That's a lot of germs! That's why it is so important to maintain a good oral care routine which STARTS with brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day.
But your teeth make up only 25% of your mouth. Think about it – you have your tongue, your cheeks, and even the hardest to reach places on your teeth – all teeming with germs. That's why no matter how long you brush your teeth, you may be leaving germs behind.
Don't worry – there's LISTERINE® Antiseptic! Its penetrating liquid formula goes all through your mouth to kill the germs that brushing leaves behind. And rinsing twice-a-day everyday with LISTERINE® gives you 24 hour protection against the germs that cause plaque and gingivitis!
LISTERINE® gives you the DEEPEST CLEAN FOR THE HEALTHIEST MOUTH.*
Why Is a Healthy Mouth So Important?
Who doesn't want a clean and healthy mouth? Of course, it helps keep your teeth clean and your breath fresh.
More than 75% of American adults over the age of 35 have some form of gum disease, also known as gingivitis.
LISTERINE® Antiseptic kills the germs that cause gingivitis by up to 36% more than brushing alone.
Which LISTERINE® Antiseptic is Right for You?
The power of LISTERINE® Antiseptic comes from a formula of four essential oils that kill millions of germs on contact. No other branded mouthwash has this formula. And that's why no other mouthwash feels or works like LISTERINE®.
And There Is a LISTERINE® Antiseptic for You!
