85% OF PATIENTS KNOW REMOVING PLAQUE PROMOTES GOOD ORAL HEALTH.4

THEY CAN REDUCE PLAQUE WITH LISTERINE® ANTISEPTIC.

All LISTERINE Antiseptic mouthwashes are equally effective at killing the bacteria that cause bad breath, plaque, and gingivitis. Powered by 4 essential oils, LISTERINE Antiseptic penetrates deeply into the bottom layers of the plaque biofilm, breaking down its structure in places that are difficult for a toothbrush or dental floss to access.1-3

LISTERINE® offers multiple fluoride-containing anticavity mouthwashes, including LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE—a complete mouthwash solution with 6 key benefits. Formulated to enhance the bioavailability of ionic fluoride, LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE maximizes fluoride uptake, restoring and strengthening the enamel.5-8

84% OF PATIENTS BELIEVE CAVITY PREVENTION IS IMPORTANT.4

SEE WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT LISTERINE® ANTICAVITY RINSES.

A MOUTHWASH IDEAL FOR ALL PATIENT TYPES?

WHAT A BOLD IDEA.

A precise combination of sodium lauryl sulfate, poloxamer, propylene glycol, and sorbitol maintains the bioavailability of the 4 essential oils without alcohol in LISTERINE® ZERO. This advanced formula provides clinical benefits comparable to LISTERINE® Antiseptic for patients with certain mouthwash needs or preferences. Other alcohol-free LISTERINE® options are available.
