The power of essential oils

It’s not the alcohol in listerine that kills germs, the alcohol binds the essential oil in solution. I recommend this for all my patients that can tolerate it, great germ killing and I use it myself twice a day! (no I do not get paid by listerine, I just think it’s a great product with solid studies that demonstrate it’s efficacy)

HOW DOES LISTERINE® WORK?

LISTERINE® Fights Germs with Essential Oils

The power of LISTERINE® Antiseptic comes from a formula of four essential oils that kill millions of germs on contact. Our fixed combination of eucalyptol, menthol, methyl salicylate, and thymol continues to deliver unsurpassed results. No other branded mouthwash has this formula. And that’s why no other mouthwash feels or works like LISTERINE®.

LISTERINE® Penetrates Plaque Biofilm and Kills Germs

Biofilm is a more recent term for the bacterial film on your teeth we call plaque. Biofilm is an organized community of germs in a gooey matrix that enables them to multiply and survive inside your mouth. Brushing and flossing help disrupt and remove this biofilm, but sometimes may miss hard to reach areas—prime real estate for gingivitis causing germs. LISTERINE® Antiseptic rapidly penetrates the biofilm to kill plaque and gingivitis germs.
