I was almost not going to try it because of all the negative reviews. However, this was given to me by my dentist, so what the hey. It was free. I'm glad I gave it a chance. Pleasant flavor and aftertaste. A crisp, clean dentist-y feeling. I'm going to start using it regularly along with my oil-pulling. :)

First off, this stuff burns, burns, burns like a ring of fire! It leaves your mouth with an icky coating and continual use seems to effect your taste buds. Secondly, listen to the bottle when it tells you not to swallow...I accidently swallowed a decent amount and holy vomi-tocious! Less than half an hour later I was upchucking my cookies! However, the second part was of my own doing, but because of the burning I would not recommend.

DDS recommended- burns and tastes terrible

I cannot use as recommended due to the intense burning sensation, not to mention the taste. My DDS highly recommended using, so I will continue to try to get thru the small bottle I purchased. I cannot fairly make a recommendation until after my next DDS visit. So my NO recommendation is due to burn and taste not results.

Taste Terrible

My husband purchased this product 2 days ago. I had just had some dental work done and decided to try it after seeing it at my dentist office. I tried it and it was the worst taste I have ever had in my mouth and I told my husband about it. The next day he tried it and said the same thing. The bottle went straight into the trash.

Burns

I also had burning in my front teeth, gums, and lips when I started swishing it around. I spit it out after almost 10 seconds and then tried again but my eyes were tearing from the burning. I have somewhat sensitive teeth but I've never had that type of sensation from a product.

It burns and it creates a white film around your mouth

This product BURNS, it says to have it in for 30 seconds but this product just burns and numbs your mouth. It also creates a white film like substance around your mouth just after using. After a few minutes this white film around your mouth appears, I don't know if it is because it burns so much that it makes the mouth shed skin or the chemicals in this product.

First started using the "original" Listerine when I learned how to RINSE after brushing my teeth without swallowing (around 1964). It was truly strong then but mom said it would keep the cold germs away (I guess she was right). However, since then I've tried other brands, other Listerine products, but the TOTAL CARE is by far my favorite and my "go-to" in the Listerine family. With flossing and brushing and rinsing, my dental visits are easy-peasy. My hygienists and dentist LOVE having me in the chair - cleaning takes no time and I'm done in less than an hour!! I also use an air-flosser after I brush and before I rinse to make sure I've reached every nook and cranny. Total Care does exactly what I need it to do.
