Gum skin peeling

Review Questions:

Review Text: 
I just got this as a sample from my dentist's office on Monday since I've had cavity issues in the past. Today is Thursday, and my gum skin is peeling off in spots. It's like a film, and I was freaking out! This is the only new product I have used. I'm glad I didn't buy any yesterday like I intended. I'm just discontinuing use and trashing it.

Total Care - Gross

Review Questions: 
State: Georgia
Age: 45-54
Review Text: 
I was looking for a product that would help restore the enamel on my teeth and to supplement my brushing for cleaner teeth. After reading several labels at the store I choose Total Care Zero as it stated it did everything I was looking for. Within an hour after using it for the first time, the whole interior of my mouth was covered in a white slime. It took another 2 hours for it to go away. I thought that this was just a first time reaction so I continued to use it for the last three days. I am now stopping the use of the product as the whole interior of my mouth is raw. I literally feels like I burnt it on hot soup. After doing some research on the product this morning, it seems that I am not alone in this issue.

Horrible Product

Review Questions: 
State: California
Age: 45-54
Review Text: 
Every time I use this product it causes the skin on the inside of my cheeks and lips to slough off. It is as if the skin of my mouth is suffering from chemical burns. The first time I used it I thought I may have kept in in my mouth to long but when I timed it I wasn't even able to keep it in my mouth the full 60 seconds..... concerned now that it may have caused permanent damage.

Stringy, mucus-y white stuff in my mouth after using

Review Questions: 
State: Pennsylvania
Age: 55 to 64
Review Text: 
I did not find this irritating or burning while using it as some reviewers did, but I woke up with a mouth full of this nasty gunk. The inside of my mouth coming off? Maybe. My tongue is a little numb, and we'll see if I can taste anything as the day goes on. I doubt there's any permanent damage, but I won't be using this again.

Skin sloughing off inside my mouth after using this product one time

Review Questions: 
State: Florida
Age: 55 to 64
Review Text: 
This product is terrible. The first night i used it, I woke up with chunks of dead skin inside my mouth. I then developed a small ulcerated area the second night i used it. I went back to the old standby, traditional brown Listerine,and i had no problems whatsoever. The Total Care Zero also contains phosphoric acid. Phosphoric acid is one of the ingredients in soda that rots your teeth. It has no place in a mouthwash.
