Listerine mouthwash is a product used to clean the mouth and help prevent gum disease, such as gingivitis, gingivitis, and bad breath. The main ingredients of Listerine mouthwash include alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride, thymol, menthol, and eucalyptol.
These ingredients have an antibacterial effect, helping to kill pathogenic bacteria in the mouth and reduce the formation of plaque, a sticky substance on teeth and gums, contributing to the prevention of gum disease. In addition, Listerine mouthwash also works to clean wounds, enhance healing and reduce pain.
However, for best results, Listerine mouthwash should be used in conjunction with other oral care measures such as proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits. You should also use Listerine mouthwash correctly, according to the instructions on the product packaging, and do not overdose.
In addition, if you have oral and dental problems such as gingivitis, gingivitis, or bleeding gums, you should consult your doctor for proper advice and treatment. Listerine mouthwash can help prevent gum disease but is not a substitute for adequate oral care and regular dental visits.
