Listerin reduces the development of Plaque and Gingivitis.
When used twice daily as part of regular oral hygiene, Listerine kills the germs that cause bad breath, plaque and gingivitis. Plaque is caused by germs in the mouth. Plaque build up may lead to gingivitis, an early form of gum disease. The symptoms of gingivitis are redness, swelling, and bleeding gums. Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss. Your oral hygiene routine should include daily brushing, flossing and rinsing with Listerine and visiting your dentist every 6 months.
