Fight Tooth Decay with the Natural Power of New LISTERINE® Natural Green Tea

Tooth decay is among the top oral problems afflicting Filipinos. Specifically, 92.4%[1] of the Philippine population has experienced that paralyzing tooth ache. Causes of tooth decay vary from case to case, but the root cause can be traced to the accumulation of germs in your mouth that brushing teeth alone may leave behind. To thoroughly remove these germs and prevent tooth decay, dentists recommend following a complete oral care routine, which includes brushing, flossing, and rinsing with a mouthwash.

LISTERINE®, the worldwide leader in mouthwash, proudly presents its latest innovation – New LISTERINE® Natural Green Tea, the first and only mouthwash from LISTERINE® that contains natural green tea extract and two times more fluoride[2], for a natural way to fight tooth decay.

Fluoride and green tea are the two key ingredients to this innovation, both of which help to fight tooth decay. Dentists regularly recommend fluoride to fight tooth decay, due to its proven ability to strengthen enamel. Green tea may have established its popularity on the grounds of bodily health, but LISTERINE® recently discovered that green tea can also help fight tooth decay by killing bacteria and strengthening the teeth.

With these two naturally-inspired ingredients and the long-established efficacy of LISTERINE®, the new LISTERINE® Natural Green Tea works in two ways to fight tooth decay. First, it effectively kills 99.9% of the germs that cause tooth decay. Second, it helps shield teeth to prevent the onset of new tooth decay.

Although 95 million Filipinos may currently be suffering from tooth decay, fighting it can now be as simple as a twice-a-day 30-second mouth rinse. With the new LISTERINE® Natural Green Tea, Filipinos can start fighting tooth decay the natural way.

The new LISTERINE® Natural Green Tea is now available in leading supermarkets, drugstores, and department stores for Php70.25 (80ml) and Php166.50 (250ml).

Make Sure You Are 100% Clean

Slow hard drives. After viruses, this is likely the worst thing to happen to a computer. Buying a bigger RAM may solve the problem, but we all know that is a temporary fix. To keep your hard drive healthily humming, give it a thorough cleaning. You may have a million files, but when cleaning your hard drive, don’t stop at just 50%. Finish the job until your hard drive is 100% clean.

Similarly, why do just half the job when taking care of your mouth? Contrary to popular belief, brushing your teeth is not enough to give your mouth the thorough cleaning that it needs. In fact, brushing alone cleans only 25% of your mouth, leaving germs and bacteria that could cause tooth decay, bleeding gums, and bad breath.

To give your mouth a 100% better clean[1], use LISTERINE® mouthwash. By reaching deep into the nooks and crannies of your mouth, LISTERINE® kills 99.9% of germs left behind by brushing. Now, you can finally give your mouth 100% better protection from the most common oral problems.

This 2012, start cleaning your mouth the right way. Don’t just do half the job – complete it with LISTERINE®.

LISTERINE® is available in all major retail outlets.
