LISTERINE® and the CDA Seal of Validation
The Canadian Dental Association has recognized the oral health benefits of all LISTERINE® Antiseptic mouthrinses by awarding their CDA Seal and the following statement:
Oral health benefit validated by CDA:
Adding LISTERINE® Antiseptic to a regular oral hygiene routine reduces and prevents gingivitis more than brushing and flossing alone.
All LISTERINE® whitening and SMART RINSE® For KIDS mouthrinses also carry the CDA Seal for prevention of tooth decay.
Because brushing and flossing only cover 25% of the mouth’s surfaces, plaque biofilm can still be present in the mouth. Adding a rinse to an everyday oral care routine can penetrate deep into plaque biofilm and kill the remaining bacteria. This complete oral care routine that incorporates brushing, flossing, and rinsing offers a virtually 100% WHOLE MOUTH CLEAN®.38
