Healthy Gingival Sites vs. CPC

Healthy Gingival Sites vs. CPC

Recommend a rinse that results in more healthy gingival sites.

LISTERINE® Antiseptic was superior to CPC (Crest® Pro-Health™) in increasing the number of healthy gingival sites

“The results of this study demonstrated the clinical superiority of a mouthrinse containing EO (LISTERINE® COOL MINT) versus 0.07% CPC (Crest® Pro-Health™) in the long-term management of plaque and gingivitis”44

LISTERINE® Antiseptic increased the number of healthy gingival sites by 46% vs. CPC at 6 months44*
