Green Tea... this seems to be one of the components of the newest Listerine variant here in the Philippines. Why did I say so? Well, I got a few items (green toothbrush holder, green small cork board, and green tea bags) from Johnson & Johnson Philippines, the importer of the said mouthwash, and that signals it.
I asked Dr. Maritess Villarico about the importance of Fluoride Treatment and how often does one need it. Watch this:
In almost all discussions related to tooth decay, fluoride takes center stage and is often credited for being the solution to all the world’s tooth decay problems. Toothpastes are formulated with fluoride, floss is laced with fluoride, and even public water supplies have been fluoride-fortified in first world and some developing countries. Admittedly, fluoride has proven its efficacy in preventing tooth decay, and so its credit is well-deserved.
Asking Dr. Villarico on how my mouth's assessment is, she answered that I'm on the low caries-risk (meaning low percentage of tooth decays) group. Watch this:
I give credit to Listerine, because I have been using it everyday. It's really effective!
Now back to the green tea component - it's actually a tooth decay-fighting agent and so much more. I'll give you more updates on the newest Listerine variant as soon as it launches. Keep in touch and make sure you not only brush your teeth, but also use a mouthwash to complete your daily oral care.
