It just must be all the hot sauce because no mouth wash seems to last for me. Though I did enjoy using Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash it actually did not taste horrid. It is not a great flavor but nothing so bad you immediately want to spit it out so you do not puke. I guess you do not want to pleasant of a taste since this is not ment to be swallowed. Says it can restore enamel but I thought dentist said it was impossible or maybe that actual bone enamel is just a coating on the bone so I guess I just answered myslef and really should take it out but it is just part of the wackiness that is my writing style to leave inapropriate messages in reviews. Not too bad on price even when not on sale so is pretty good for now I have been avoiding trying that pro health stuff because it is always too expensive. This is a lot cheaper and seems to have a lot of benefits. Now all they got to do is make some that is hot sauce flavored. Wait that's not a good idea.

I really like this product.  The product was billed as a "complete" product - doing the job of at least 2 other products.  That is a great concept.  It would have been a great time saver and that was a no brainer a busy person like myself.  I used it for about three months.  Then came time to visit the dentist.  Now, I go to the dentist at least three times a year in order to avoid larger problems.  The dentist immediately noticed that things had taken a turn for the worst since my last visit.  What could it be?  Apparently, the only change in my routine was the Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash.  She recommened I discontinue it immediately.  She recommended I stick with the regular Listerine brand.  Most importantly, Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash is not American Dental Association (ADA) approved.  If one day, they change the formulation and it is approved, I would be willing to try it again.

Your first time will determine if you want to keep using it.

By 

from USA

Comments about Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint:

As people say, it seems to do its job well. It claims to help reduce cavities, fight plaque, get rid of bad breath, and a variety of other things. As far as I can tell, it does help with all of those.

But the first time you use it, be warned. It's taste is a tad strong. If you really hate spicy foods or things with a strong flavor, especially that of mint, try this with caution. I am one of these people, so my first mouthful just about made me lose my lunch, let alone keep it in my mouth for the requisite amount of time. It has a very strong spearmint taste, and also leaves a bit of an aftertaste. It also seems to have a distinct metallic tang that sticks around for a half-hour or so, but that might just be me. And it simply serves to remind me not to eat anything for a bit. But, now that I've been using it awhile, it does help keep my mouth fresh. And, it doesn't take long to get used to the strong taste. So...a bit risky on the taste, but pretty good overall.

This product is excellent to use upon awakening.

By 

from USA

Comments about Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint:

This is the only mouthwash I ever use. I was prone to cavities, but this mouthwash as well as regular flossing and brushing seems to help in preventing additional cavities. While some consumers may object to the alcohol in this mouthwash, I prefer the presence of alcohol as I believe it helps more in the killing of germs and the freshening of my breath when I first wake up in the morning. I usually do not brush my teeth in the morning as I eat a late breakfast due to time constraints and the fact that I, like many others, am not hungry upon first awakening; however, I swish a mouthful of this wash around my mouth while preparing for the day. This is all that I have found to be necessary to completely freshen my mouth, and I believe the alcohol definitely helps in this regard. While an individual can tell alcohol is present in the mouthwash, the taste of this mouthwash is fine. I recommend this mouthwash to all those in a hurry in the morning, but who want to ensure their breath is fresh.

Comments about Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint:

In the past I have tried lots and lots of different Listerine and this Is decent but not great the taste isn't perfect or anything to brag about but the quality of the job is good I think that it's only downfall is the taste but like I said I wouldn't go back to the old one because it doesn't do as much ad this one does

Listerine Total Care: Burn Your Way to Better Oral Health

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint:

Mouthwash can go a long way in freshening breath and leaving the mouth with a clean, crisp feeling. But there are some mouthwash products that go far beyond the call of duty, eliminating bad breath and taking care of the teeth and gums. One product that multi- tasks in the mouth is **Listerine Total Care Anti- Cavity Mouthwash**.

**Mouthwash Commentary:**

Listerine Total Care Anti- Cavity Mouthwash is a purple- colored mouthwash with a strong flavor of mint. The liquid not only fights bad breath and kills germs, it also reduces plaque above the gum line, restores tooth enamel, helps prevent cavities, and strengthens the teeth.

Listerine Total Care Anti- Cavity Mouthwash is an all- around oral rinse and as you can see from the list above, it performs many important tasks- much more than you get with a typical mouthwash. Mouthwash products continue to evolve and continue to do more and more. Listerine has just about hit the limit with this product- it does everything but perform root canals and it makes a good choice when you want the absolute greatest pretection possible for your teeth.

Listerine Total Care Anti- Cavity Mouthwash is a very useful product, but to get the above listed benefits, you have to actually use it. And as anyone who has tried this protect will attest, using it is easier said than done. The reason is because of the very strong, burning sensation you feel as you hold the liquid in the mouth and count to sixty. The manufacturer recommeds holding it in and swishing it around for a full minute, but many consumers will never come even close to the sixty-second mark. The taste is too extreme and many will spit it out quickly, after only about ten seconds.

**Bottom- Line Viewpoint:**

If complete oral care is what you want, then Listerine Total Care Anti- Cavity Mouthwash is a good product to consider. As long as you can tolerate a burning sensation along the lines of pure grain alcohol, you should do very well with this Listerine product.

Listerine's power packed mouthwash will wake you up!

By 

from Logan, UT

Comments about Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint:

I've never used mouthwash - but really wanted to try it after I experience a painful root canal.  And I discovered that since the water in our area doesn't contain fluoride, my teeth were starting to rot unless I took action.  I set out to find a mouthwash that has fluoride and would help fight plaque and reduce cavities.  Of all the mouthwashes out there, **Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint **was the most affordable.

The first time I tried it - I thought I had understood the directions (swish in mouth for 1 minute), but I got the proportions all wrong and was surprised by the overwhelming burning sensation.  (I think I had 3 times the recommended dose).  It doesn't take much for this mouthwash to do it's job.

I'm not sure the burning sensation is a con - it burns - but that means that it's working!

I would recommend this to anyone who cares for the health of their teeth (and live in an area where fluoride isn't added to their water.)

Listerine Total Care, Fresh Mint, It Works!

By 

from Conway, SC

Comments about Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint:

Listerine Total Care Works! I use it twice a day to help freshen my breath after meals and it really does the job! It does have alcohol as an ingredient and it burns slightly but the taste outweighs the burn. I like that it has 6 benefits:


1. Helps prevent cavities

2. restores enamel

3. strengthens teeth

4. kills bad breath germs

5. freshens breath

6. cleans the whole mouth


Although I have not been to the dentist since I have started using Listerin Total Care but I feel that it definitely works at killing the germs and freshening the breath. We will see what the dentist has to say next month regarding the other aspects that is noted as a benefit.

I do have to note that there are 3 cons:


1. having to wait 30 minutes to eat or drink after using

2. The lid! Yes, the lid! I sometimes have difficulty getting the bottle open because you have to squeeze then twist. Childproof and sometimes adult proof too!

3. Price - can be double what you would pay for storebrands.


I would recommend buying Listerine total care if you find it on sale and do not mind waiting to eat or drink.

A good quality mouthwash

By 

from Grovertown, IN

Comments about Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint:

I started using Listerine Total Care Anticavity mouthwash when my dentist recommended it to me at my last visit. He gave me a small sample from his office to try. I thought it did a really good job and I liked all the benefits it said it would offer me. It kills bad breath germs nicely and leaves my mouth feeling very clean. I liked the fact that it is suppose to help restore enamel because i feel like mine has slowly eroded away over the years. I'm sure drinking soda contributed alot to that. It does have a bit of a burn when you put it in your mouth, but it is not really that bad of a burn. It also fights plaque above the gum line and the dentist said that was a good thing to keep an eye on. The color of it is so pretty too.

Total Care Anti Cavity Mouthwash tastes really good and works!

By 

from Manitowoc, WI

Comments about Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint:

First off, I love the color of this product. It's so... fresh and new. Who isn't attracted to the style and color of it's packaging?

I love how this stuff works. It does sting- but that doesn't bother me. If you don't like the tingle of freshness (aka Alcohol) then you won't like this product. However, I really like that. I love how it makes your mouth feel fresh, and vibrant after you use it! It tastes really, really good too! I like how this does all 6 things too. You get whitening and cavity protection! I haven't noticed a huge difference in the whiteness of my teeth since I started using this- but I can definitely tell a difference in the cleanliness of how my mouth feels, and in the lasting power of my minty fresh breath. This smell/taste lasts a long time in your mouth- even through eating. It foams up kind of when you swish- and really gets in and cleans those teeth! This is a bit pricey- but you can get coupons and things that help with that too!

Love Listerine Total Care mouthwash!

By 

from Piqua, OH

Comments about Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash - Fresh Mint:

All mouthwashes are not created equal! Took me awhile to figure that out but this is by far the best mouthwash! Yes, it is a bit spicy (as my kids would say) but I love how it leaves my mouth feeling fresh and clean. Not like some others that seem to leave a film covering the inside of your mouth.
