Periodontitis & Oral Care

Periodontitis

Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that can occur if gingivitis is allowed to progress. Scientific evidence suggests that periodontitis weakens your teeth's support system, which, in turn, can cause tooth loss.

When you have periodontitis, it requires ongoing professional care. Therefore, prevention is key. Adopt a good oral care routine. Floss with LISTERINE® Floss products, and rinse with LISTERINE® Antiseptic to prevent plaque & gingivitis.
