Protection by Total Care Milder Taste

LISTERINE® Total Care Milder Taste provides strong enamel protection with fluoride at 220 ppm (0.05%)

LISTERINE® Total Care Milder Taste reaches all exposed tooth surfaces
Factors contributing to enamel demineralisation include plaque accumulation in hard to reach areas missed by brushing, and chemical causes – such as acidic drinks. Acidic drinks, a major cause of enamel erosion, can attack all 5 tooth surfaces. Unlike a fluoridated dentifrice, LISTERINE® Total Care Milder Taste can consistently reach all 5 exposed tooth surfaces, including interproximal regions.

LISTERINE® Total Care Milder Taste – high fluoride uptake for effective re-hardening of enamel
LISTERINE Total Care Milder Taste is formulated for more efficient uptake of fluoride than Fluorigard. LISTERINE® Total Care Milder Taste’s optimum short-term pH level maximises fluoride uptake by the tooth surface. LISTERINE® alcohol-free (220 ppm fluoride) was significantly more effective in promoting fluoride uptake into softened enamel than Fluorigard (p<0.001).1
