Did you know
Nearly all adult Americans will have some form of gingivitis during their lives. It’s an early form of gum disease, but many people don’t even realize they have it. Left untreated, it can lead to even more serious oral health problems, like the loss of soft tissue, bones and teeth.
Indicators of the Gum Disease, Gingivitis:
- Gums that bleed from brushing or flossing
- Red gums
- Swollen, tender or shiny gums
- A sticky film on the teeth (known as plaque), above the gum line, even after you brush
Is the Challenge right for you?
You shower, shampoo, and brush your teeth every day. But how clean are you, really? It doesn’t matter if you shower 4 times a day – you’re likely neglecting an important part of your body
Wondering where? Be prepared to say “ahh,” because if your oral care routine consists of just brushing, you’re missing the majority of your mouth. That’s right! Brushing alone misses 75% of your mouth, leaving plenty of room for germs to grow.
When you only brush, you miss areas on your gums, tongue, cheeks, and other surfaces—and leave lots of plaque and gingivitis germs behind.
When you include a mouthwash like LISTERINE® Antiseptic along with brushing, the liquid can reach every corner, and crevice—helping you to clean virtually 100% of your mouth.
What LISTERINE® Antiseptic can do for you
Beyond cleaning virtually 100% of your mouth, use LISTERINE® Antiseptic mouthwash 2X a day for 30 seconds and get*:
Tips for Success
In addition to taking the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge, maintain a healthier mouth all year long with just a few simple tips.
- Practice your technique. There’s a proper way to brush and floss. If you’re unfamiliar with the correct technique, ask your dentist or dental hygienist for help. You can also visit the American Dental’s Association’s website (www.ada.org) to watch some great tutorials.
- Beware of biofilm. That sticky feeling in your mouth when you wake up in the morning is a sign that bacteria inside have stuck together and multiplied—creating a thick layer called plaque biofilm. Beat biofilm by brushing, flossing, and rinsing twice a day.
- Keep it in sight. Store your bottle of mouthwash in a visible spot in the bathroom (but out of reach to children)—along with your toothbrush—so you remember to rinse twice day.
- Give it time. It can take up to three weeks to form a healthy habit (hence the 21 days!). So stick with the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge, and let the results inspire you to make it a part of your daily routine.
