A fan of green tea? Then we have good news for you! Listerine celebrated their 130th anniversary and also launched their latest Listerine Natural Green Tea flavoured mouthwash last Friday.
The key ingredient in this new flavoured mouthwash are the essential oils and the double dose of fluoride which is believed to have the ability to protect your teeth. Essential oils have antimicrobial effects while fluoride has the ability to form a protective shield on your teeth to ward off cavities.
Fluoride also has the ability to enhance the resistance of your enamel to prevent your tooth from eroding and to help kill biofilm plaque which can be found constantly on your teeth.
If you haven’t started using mouthwash, then maybe it’s time for you to start today. We managed to have a tiny Q&A with Dr. Arunee and this is what she had to say about oral hygiene.
Most people assume that it isn’t necessary to use mouthwash if you brush your teeth two to three times a day. Is this a misconception?
Yes, because even if you brush your teeth two to three times a day, the quality of brushing matters the most. Bacteria can still develop if the quality isn’t good and brushing itself may not be sufficient as there are areas inside your mouth which can’t be reached by just using a toothbrush.
How often should people use mouthwash?
Twice a day would be ideal.
What would you like to tell our readers about oral hygiene?
You need to maintain good oral hygiene so that your teeth will be healthy and you won’t develop any mouth diseases. The best way to maintain good oral hygiene is by brushing, flossing, rinsing and visiting the dentist every six months once.
The Listerine Natural Green Tea is now available at all pharmacies, so ladies, why don’t you get yourself a bottle today. Let us know what you think of Listerine’s new mouthwash once you’ve tried it!
