After baskets of candy that result from Halloween, followed by the delicious pumpkin pie and sugary desserts that come along with Thanksgiving, keeping your mouth healthy is extremely important this time of year.
With the holidays quickly approaching, the last thing you want to be self-conscious about under the mistletoe or at the turn of a new year is bad breath! LISTERINE® mouthwash wants you to be prepared for anything with the best party accessory there is – a clean and healthy mouth.
Not-so-fun fact: Brushing alone actually misses 75 percent of your mouth! I don’t know about you, but I’m not feeling too confident with those odds.
I have been using LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash at least once a day for years, and I can tell an immediate difference in the overall feel in my mouth if I skip a day or two. Want to know my secret for bright teeth and a clean track record at the Dentist? LISTERINE® Mouthwash.
Cover the majority of what your toothbrush and floss are missing in under a minute of swishing a day with LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash.
Simply 30 seconds of swishing with 4 teaspoons of the liquid each morning and night can help you reach nearly 100 percent of your mouth and kill the germs that cause plaque, gingivitis and bad breath. LISTERINE® Antiseptic has been shown to reduce 52 percent more plaque and 21 percent more gingivitis than brushing and flossing alone!
Considering the majority of adult Americans will develop gingivitis at some point in their lives (and maybe not even know it), oral health is a concern we should draw a little more attention to!
“The Essentials” work together to pack the powerful punch to kill those hard to reach germs, and are found in the four essential oils that originally came from plant sources that have protected your mouth for over a century.
Derived from trees usually found in Australia, this essential oil acts as both an antibacterial and anti-fungal agent.
Identical to the menthol found in natural corn mint, this essential oil is known for its germ killing properties.
Identical to the thymol in natural thyme and ajowan herb, research continues to demonstrate this essential oil’s effectiveness against bacteria.
• Methyl Salicylate
Identical to the methyl salicylate in natural wintergreen, this essential oil is also found in chewing gum due to its fresh flavoring properties.
No other branded mouthwash has this unique, fixed combination formula that kills millions of germs on contact, all the while helping keep your mouth healthy and holiday party ready all year long!
