Marie Jackson, dentist and member of LISTERINE®’s Advisory Board, and Michael Lynch, Global Director of Oral Care Scientific Engagement at Johnson & Johnson Consumer, Inc., discuss details of published research demonstrating that LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash is 4.6x more effective in reducing supragingival plaque compared to flossing*. The research also offered more insights into the dental care habits, practices, and beliefs of dental subjects, including the importance of brushing, flossing, and rinsing as part of a daily routine.

*Flossing by a dental hygienist. Sustained supragingival plaque reduction after dental prophylaxis. Not a replacement for brushing or flossing.
