In addition to regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings I used to use a variety of mouthwash and rinses. Plaque remover rinse, fluoride rinse, and a general purpose germ fighting mouthwash were all within reach. Now that I’ve discovered Listerine Total Care Anti-Cavity Mouthwash Fresh Mint, it’s the only mouth rinse that I need.

The Multi-purpose Mouthwash
Listerine Total Care Anti-cavity Mouthwash Fresh Mint is a multi-purpose mouthwash that treats or prevents various oral and dental concerns. Using one product for multiple oral and dental concerns is what I like most about Listerine Total Care Anti-cavity Mouthwash.
The sodium fluoride helps strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. I no longer purchase a separate fluoride rinse (ACT) because Listerine Total Care Anti-cavity Mouthwash contains fluoride. It also contains a plaque fighting ingredient that helps remove plaque build-up along the gum line. There's no need to buy a separate plaque fighter like Plax because Listerine Total Care Anti-cavity Mouthwash Fresh Mint can fight the plaque. Listerine Total Care Anti-cavity Mouthwash Fresh Mint is also capable of killing the germs that cause bad breath and gingivitis. An individual antiseptic mouthwash is no longer necessary if you're using Listerine Total Care Anti-cavity Mouthwash Fresh Mint.
The mouthwash has a purple tint and comes in a clear plastic bottle with black twist-off cap. The cap is child-proof which makes it difficult to open. I have full function of my hands/arms and often have difficulties removing the cap. I wish it was available without the child-proof cap!
How I Use it
I swish approximately 2 teaspoons of Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash Fresh Mint after brushing my teeth with Arm and Hammer toothpaste. For maximum fluoride protection, I don't eat or drink for 30 minutes after using the mouthwash. I usually use this oral rinse two times a day.
Listerine Total Care Anti-cavity Mouthwash Fresh Mint has an acceptable almost pleasant minty taste. However it does give a slightly strong "burn in your mouth" sensation. But it doesn't give as much of a burning mouth sensation as the standard Listerine Antiseptic Mouthwash. Both have the same alcohol content of 21.6% but the Listerine Total Care Mouthwash doesn't give me a strong burning mouth feeling while I'm swishing it in my mouth.
Some mouthwash and oral rinse products leave an unusual or unpleasant after taste. With Act Fluoride rinse I detected a licorice root flavor which is similar to the taste of old fashioned licorice candies. Listerine Total Care Anti-Cavity Mouthwash Fresh Mint doesn't leave an unpleasant lingering after taste. My tongue tastes minty and my mouth feels fresh after using the mouthwash.
Since using Listerine Total Care Anti-cavity Mouthwash in the Fresh Mint flavor I have not had any new dental problems. With regular and meticulous brushing, flossing, and dental exams I have not had any issues while using this mouth rinse. When used with excellent oral hygiene and regular dental exams, I believe that Listerine Total Care Anti-Cavity Mouthwash has helped keep my teeth and gums healthy.

Why I Will Continue to Use this Mouthwash
For my oral hygiene rinsing routine, Listerine Total Care Anti-Cavity Mouthwash Fresh Mint is an all-in-one mouth rinse. It covers all of my required needs - plaque removal, germ killer, and fluoride. I no longer buy three separate products because Listerine Total Care Anti-Cavity Mouthwash contains everything I need in one bottle. For fresh breath and oral hygiene I use it twice a day.
