Think that you are making "a Listerine" sandwich - placing it between toothpaste and the ACT!!!

I've no problems keeping up with the Listerine. It just knocked me back a pace.

I plan to go full strength all the way.

It is a struggle however to break the old habit of rinsing with water after I brush. That's actually hard.. I goofed twice!

By the way.. do you have that video on brushing up on youtube? Thanks.

Listerine is strong - and it is OK to dilute with water. It is vital to paste your teeth with Crest Cavity Protection paste BEFORE using Listerine. After using Listerine you must rinse immediately with ACT anticavity rinse. Check my website for details of this system.

Listerine will stop gingivitis and without gingivitis you will not get periodontitis. 95 % of US adults have some kind of gum disease ( and this can harm your general health).

WOW.. as someone who is not accustomed to Listerine.. basically I've never had a drink of alcohol in my life.. it burns something fierce. My eyes were watering and tears rolled down my cheeks before 30 seconds were up. How do adults get use to this stuff.

Dear Doctor- dentist surgery- fill a cavity below the gumline. asked before the work if the gums would heal normally. he said yes. But after the surgery/ filling they did not heal back and are very low in that one spot. specialist said "Since gums do not attach to fillings, I could not guarantee a gum graft." 2nd  dentist/and specialist, who said the same thing! 1strefunded the amount spent on the tooth, $1400.   Over $4000! gum that needs treatment, not the tooth?
