Listerine really helps on days when you're too lazy to brush.
i always thought that too, and when i asked my dentists about it they said that rinsing with it is about the equivalent to rinsing your mouth with water...except it makes your breath smell better. they said it can even be worse because a lot of them contain sugars which can actually erode your enamel instead of cleaning it. i was surprised to hear that.
Listerine is strong enough to clean your toilet. It'll kill everything in your mouth, especially the stuff that causes gingivitis, and there is no sugar in Listerine. I'm not talking about breath fresheners. This is the serious stuff.
hmmmmm see thats what i thought too...maybe i misunderstood what they told me...but i swear they were referring to listerine. im going in for a cleaning soon...ill inquire about it again
icck, the cleaning stuff they use...i think it's called flouride....yuck, that stuff's horrible, but the impressions are worse, you know when they put that gooey stuff in a little half-circled pan and shove it on your teeth and you gag like crazy....
