Upgrading Your Brushing Routine Is Not Enough To Achieve Total Mouth Defense

Upgrading Your Brushing Routine Is Not Enough To Achieve Total Mouth Defense


How do you feel about this story?


The pandemic has heightened people’s need to look after their health more and in result making them more conscious on being active, what food they eat, and what products they use on their body, just to name a few. However, while other aspects of health are being prioritized, oral health is often overlooked or forgotten because there is also a lack of information among the Filipinos. Though, the reality is that oral health should also be prioritized as It affects our overall health.

According to the Department of Health, oral disease is recognized to be a serious public health problem in the Philippines as it was also found in their National Monitoring and Evaluation Dental Survey from last 2011, that more than 7 out of 10 Filipinos have never even been to a dentist. So, this Oral Health Month it’s high time that we talk about our bibigs again and educate Filipinos on proper oral care because brushing alone misses millions of germs in your mouth which is the main cause of several oral health problems.

“Our LISTERINE® Bibig Time campaign is back and bigger than ever for its third year as we aim to bring back the conversation to our bibigs! With the goal to educate Filipinos more about the state of their oral health, we also want to encourage them to also upgrade their bibig routines for an overall healthier body, especially in the time of a global pandemic. Mouthwash goes beyond than just giving fresh breath. It is a proven oral care essential used daily as it gives total mouth defense that brushing can’t give.” shared LISTERINE® Brand Manager, Fitz Domingo.

Brushing only kills 25% of germs in the mouth. The Philippine Dental Association advocates for proper oral hygiene by practicing brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash twice daily. After brushing and flossing, rinse with LISTERINE® Total Care mouthwash, the Most Recommended Mouthwash by Filipino Dentists, for 30 seconds. By using LISTERINE® Total Care mouthwash daily, you can achieve overall better mouth health because brushing is not enough and Listerine can go to places where brushing can’t, killing 99.9% of germs.
