Just 30 seconds of rinsing, twice a day. That's all it takes when you use LISTERINE FRESHBURST Antiseptic Mouthwash. You'll get 24-hour protection with clinically proven health benefits.
Rinsing twice a day isn’t just a great way to keep your breath fresh. It’s the key to getting your whole mouth clean. The truth is that brushing alone only gets your mouth 25% clean. The power of the swish fights bacteria in your whole mouth, – teeth and gums. But it should be used twice a day to reach its deep-clean effectiveness. After all, germs are in your mouth all day, every day, and one swish only protects you for 12 hours. For LISTERINE rinse to reach its full powerful potential, use as directed and swish and rinse vigorously for 30 seconds twice daily for 24 hour germ protection.
What happens each time you swish properly? Research shows that antimicrobial LISTERINE mouthwash completely kills oral bacteria within 30 seconds for a difference you will notice with continued use.
This is key to fighting bad breath, yet a lot of people overlook it. Ideally, you should brush and floss after every meal. This helps reduce odor-causing bacteria in your mouth. Follow this up with a twice-daily rinse to reduce bacteria-causing plaque. Use an antiseptic LISTERINE rinse that kills bacteria, rather than a cosmetic rinse that just covers up the odor but doesn’t address the cause.
Everything you consume gets absorbed into your bloodstream only to reappear when you breathe and speak. Pungent ingredients like garlic, onions and other spicy foods are some of the worst offenders. So eat more vegetables and herbs--their higher water content will help flush your mouth of debris.
Gum sweetened with 100% xylitol can also help reduce cavities. Be wary of mints: at best they’ll just mask bad breath, at worst they’ll be loaded with sugar that will just stick to your teeth and add to your problem. Stash handy LISTERINE POCKETPAKS breath strips in your office drawer, pockets and purse for an extra boost of fresh breath when you need it.
Ever wondered where LISTERINE rinse got its name? Dr. Joseph Lawrence, the creator of LISTERINE mouthwash, wanted to name his work after a scientist who paved the way. Lister, an English doctor and surgeon, became the first surgeon to perform an operation in a chamber sterilized with pulverized antiseptic. The result? More patients survived than ever before. Inspired, Lawrence created a unique formulation of his own that was perfect for killing germs in tissues, like your mouth.
