An efficacious treatment for sensitive teeth – Advanced Defence Sensitive

LISTERINE® Advanced Defence Sensitive is a daily use mouth rinse featuring potassium oxalate crystal occlusion treatment. Potassium oxalate, the active ingredient in the formulation at a concentration of 1.42%, binds to calcium in oral fluids and leads to the formation of calcium oxalate crystals deep inside the exposed open tubules. The crystals build with every rinse to provide deep, stable tubule occlusion.

Advanced Defence Sensitive is clinically proven to provide relief from dentine hypersensitivity, and to block 92% of dentine tubules in just 6 rinses in vitro.1

LISTERINE® Advanced Defence Sensitive is over twice as effective at blocking tubules than Sensodyne® Rapid Relief and Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief toothpastes at 6 rinses (p<0.05).1

Do not recommend this product if patients have a history of kidney disease, hyperoxaluria, kidney stones or malabsorption syndrome, or take high doses of vitamin C (1000 mg or more per day).
