High fluoride uptake

LISTERINE® Total Care Enamel Guard delivers high fluoride uptake

The short-term pH level of LISTERINE® Total Care Enamel Guard maximises fluoride uptake by the tooth surface.1

In a study to determine fluoride uptake into softened enamel which included LISTERINE® Total Care Enamel Guard, Fluorigard and water (n=18), LISTERINE® Total Care Enamel Guard was more effective in promoting fluoride uptake into softened enamel than Fluorigard.1

LISTERINE® Total Care Enamel Guard’s optimum short-term pH level maximises fluoride uptake and hence mineral exchange.2,3 Indeed, fluoride uptake with LISTERINE® Total Care Enamel Guard with 225 ppm fluoride was significantly greater than with Sensodyne ProNamel, containing 450 ppm fluoride (p<0.001).4
