What is Listerine Advanced Defence Sensitive Mouthwash?
Listerine Advanced Defence Sensitive Mouthwash is a mouthwash that is designed to be kind to sensitive teeth while keeping your teeth clean and fresh. It helps to protect your teeth from sources of sensitivity, so you won’t have to worry about the pain caused by sensitive teeth.
Why do I have sensitive teeth?
Your teeth become sensitive when your tooth enamel wears away, leaving the pores that run to the nerves of your teeth exposed. This means that hot, cold or sweet foods can affect these pores, causing the pain that you’ll recognise as sensitivity. Some of the most common causes of sensitive teeth include:
- Tooth decay
- Eating acidic foods or drink
- Brushing too hard or over-brushing your teeth
- Receding gums
- Gum disease
- Grinding your teeth
How will this mouthwash care for my sensitive teeth?
Listerine Advanced Defence Sensitive Mouthwash helps to protect sensitive teeth by blocking the microscopic holes that form on the surface of your teeth. This protects any exposed nerves, preventing pain caused by sensitivity.
